A 22-year-old bitcoin millionaire named Eric Finman announced a smartphone “Freedom Phone” that’s completely free from censorship by big tech companies like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social apps.
The Freedom Phone is a phone that prioritizes free speech and privacy. It comes with a bunch of security features that we haven’t seen in any smartphone before such as tracking blockers and an app store that is uncensored.
The company has only one motto “free speech and privacy first”. The good thing is it also works with Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and all other domestic and foreign carriers are supported. As soon as the phone comes, you can move it over in just 60 seconds.
On paper, the specifications look just normal. It comes with 6.88 inches IPS display with a waterdrop notch and a display resolution of 720 x 1560 pixels that’s below average. Only comes in a single variant of 4 Gig of Ram and 64 Gigs of internal storage with expandable storage and runs Freedom OS.

Trust will help you understand the security of your device and warn you about possible threats.Freedom Phone’s website stated
On the performance side, it’s totally shit. The company just mention 1.8 GHz, 8 cores. As if they don’t even know what they are selling. On the other hand, companies are collaborating to launch smartphones with heavy specs. And to be honest, it sounds like a scam by taking the advantage of the word “privacy”. It looks like Mr. Finman has imported Chinese smartphones, with a few alterations like changing its UI and branding and marketing as free speech and privacy first smartphone. Apart from the privacy features mentioned on their website. It only has 10 “Buy Now” buttons.
Their taglines show how they care about your privacy but they sound dumb too, the company says,
“Not just making America great. But also making a great phone.”
Honestly, this project from the world’s youngest Bitcoin millionaire seems to offer nothing that any other Android phone can’t already do, just with faux “freedom” marketing and the assumption that its users have no idea what this phone is. Whatever you believe and however you vote, it really looks like the Freedom Phone is designed to cynically take advantage of you.
Privacy is a major concern in today’s world. A lot of us would love to have smartphones that will help us protect our data from this vicious world But, in Freedom Phone, there are a lot of red flags. If you’re willing to spend $500 on a phone, you should spend somewhere else.
