    Sure ;)

    On a side topic, when installing a new PC I always use this to install the most common software and avoiding potential bloat:

    The installer automatically just installs the software, skips any ads, newsletters, toolbars, 3rd party software....
    Really handy to have the installer ready, since it automatically fetches the latest updates of each of the softwares you included as well.

    As much as I like debloating and battery life I also like using a close to non modified OS, atleast in such a way that is does not interfere and makes it a less normal phone that provides less or no anonymous feedback at all.
    So when I debloated my 7 Pro pretty much I always left all the Oneplus stuff untouched.
    Barely done anything on my 8 Pro other than uninstalling apps I have no need of.
    I've based my debloating on the XDA scripts in the past, picking the most desirable and safe components that would have none or the smallest interference to the beta testing.
    This will be some nice reading and maybe I end up with similar debloat as I did on 7 Pro.

    Nice Thread 🧵.I personally use The apps that come with the phone. Then I make the decisions what apps I'm not using then delete the the junk apps!! Then I go into my library and put my useful apps Back in.. This might take a little time But I prefer no bloat if you want to float!! ✌🏻 A nice clean phone. Don't forget widgets. Only use ones,That are useful. No excess gualk wear. 👊🏻✌🏻

    There was a time I used to go all out to debloat and secure my devices. These days though I've kind of accepted the fact that it's a never ending battle to do so.

    I still do the obvious things that any user should be doing, like using 2 factor authentication, a good VPN, strong passwords etc. Other than that I just keep a regular eye on my app permissions (also website permissions), disable the apps I can't uninstall and regularly delete apps that I haven't used in a while.

    Very interesting thread though @Mr. BG I'll be checking this out over the next could of days 👍
