      Your phone has bigger problems if it cannot take 170mb apps, this isn’t the 1990s

        That’s a very bad way to look at things. Just because I have gigabytes of memory doesn’t mean I want to use unoptimized software.

          And your way to look at things that “all apps must be 20 mb or less otherwise they are unoptimised” is better because?

            Because optimized software is better for industry, people, and environment. Also seeing that some menu or window is not an html page but a native element makes my headache go away because I value my CPU cycles (seeing a cursor doesn’t lag when some complex page is displayed should not be considered a weird fetish) and like it when things don’t do stupid unnecessary stuff both visually and under the hood.

            And it could be even less than that depending on specifics.

        If developers optimized their apps, we could have phones that are 10x faster than 10 yeara ago. Instead they are the same speed and the same amount of apps fit in the bigger storage, because developers are lazy and use heavy, unoptimized technologies that use 10x the resources

          That sounds like a problem with YOUR phone. Every phone I’ve bought has been faster than the last. Maybe you have too much bloatware?

          I use open source Android only, will not use a phone with stock android. Bloatware is a non-issue on AOSP unless you do that to your own phone.
