Linux for Phones?


So I switched to Linux a year back from Windows and I consider that to be my best decision ever that year. Its got everything I want and even the things it ain't got, it's slowly getting recognition in and will someday get (Thanks SteamDeck).

So major reason why I switched away from Windows and didn't try Mac was because I wanted to get away from the majority OSs. Not only because of the often said benefits like security or complete control, but mainly because I did not want to sell my tech soul to one big corporation who's intents and practices are so out of touch with their customers'.

So now I'm desperate for something else. I know there isn't yet a proper alternative but is there a future for Linux on handhelds? I know Pinephone exists already but that still means Linux OS on handheld misses out on so many essential apps that android and iOS have already got. Will the market ever have enough of a Linux handheld share to incentivize producers to make Linux specific apps and provide proper support? Cuz it would be great to cut ties with android and iOS the same way I said buh bye to Microsoft before it came up with Windows 11.
