"The world generates 2bn tonnes of solid waste annually – enough to fill 250m builder’s skips. If these were placed end to end, they would go around the world more than 23 times."

They've got newer versions (with ability to add remotely) in their own fdroid repository. The version in the main fdroid repo doesnt have this.

I wouldnt be aiming for

I'd get a Pixel 3a and use or
