/e/OS is at the core of our privacy by design ecosystem. We have removed many pieces of code that send your personal data to remote servers without your consent. We don’t scan your data in your phone or in your cloud space, and we don’t track your location hundred times a day or collect what you’re doing with your apps.

/e/OS comes with beautifully designed open-source apps to cover most of your needs: browser, email, calendar, maps, camera ….

And because /e/OS runs on Android, you can still run most of your favourite Android apps.

Access app directly from your phone

Our app directory will give you access to more than 60,000 free apps directly from the OS.

You can check if each application respects your personal data with our privacy score. It analyses each app for you and gives them a score from 0 to 10.

We are constantly adding new apps.

Murena is the new brand for phones coming with /e/OS pre-installed. As we aim to reach more and more people looking for smartphones with privacy built-in, it is important to make it simple for people to refer to their phone, mention it to their friends and relatives, etc…

Overtime, we expect to roll out the Murena brand to more products and services.

/e/OS remains the name of the operating system.

Murena is a reference to the project initial name, EELO, we had to drop some time back.

When looking for a new name, we read this reference on wikipedia we liked a lot:
Murena is a name (cognomen) used by a Roman plebeian family from Lanuvium belonging to the gens Licinia. It is supposed to be derived from the fondness of a family member for lampreys (murenae). The plebs were, in ancient Rome, the general body of free Roman citizens who were not patricians, as determined by the census. The precise origins of the group and the term are unclear, though it may be that they began as a limited political movement in opposition to the elite (patricians) which became more widely applied.

Like those free Roman citizens who fought for their freedom, Murena aims to free people from the Big Tech control over our personal data.

    Bon téléphone, mais le son des appels via le haut-parleur est un peu bas.
    Se connecte par Bluetooth au véhicule mais ne coupe pas son micro qui fonctionne en même temps que celui du véhicule ce qui provoque de l’écho.

    • Alexis Noetinger

      Bonjour, merci pour votre commentaire. Nous avons publié il y a quelques jours une mise à jour qui corrige le problème d’écho lors d’un appel sans fil, connecté à un casque ou un autoradio. Merci de mettre à jour et d’installer la version 0.18 qui corrige ce problème. Bien à vous.

    Le GS290 n’est pas compatible avec des cartes jusqu’à 256 Go, mais seulement jusqu’à 32 Go !! C’est écrit dans le manuel, dommage de ne pas l’avoir lu avant et de s’être fié à la publicité. Donc il ne gère pas le format exfat, et il est limité à des fichiers inférieurs à 4 Go.

    I have to agree with the jl.dubus review. I like this phone and am getting used to Android again but without the tracking which is good. The volume of calls via the speaker is low but the echo of your own voice when connected via bluetooth to the car speakers is annoying making it unusable in the car. Generally works well otherwise, I am keeping app use to a minimum anyway and only using a few non tracking ones which was my main reason for buying it. Wanted to see how I got on with it so will probably get a more expensive de-Googled phone next.

      Hi Paul, the issue with the noise echo on calls over Bluetooth with a headset or the car system has been solved with the 0.18 update. Thanks for downloading and installing this update. Cheers.

    De GS290 is een prima telefoon. Voldoende RAM en doet wat hij moet doen. Ziet er goed uitmaar is iets dikker dan ik gewend ben. Minpuntje vind ik dat hij te glad is waardoor hij snel uit mijn handen glijdt. Maar daar hebben meerdere telefoons last van. Heb er een extra SD kaart van 64 GB in zitten die goed werkt. Geluidskwaliteit is wat minder dan ik gewend ben. Grootste pluspunt vind ik dat deze telefoon nieuw is en in combinatie met /e/OS geleverd wordt.

    Attention certaines applications, même si installées depuis le app store officiel /e/ ne fonctionnent pas sur ce téléphone. Exemple, au moment de mon installation, nulle part était écrit que MyInfocertID nécessitait du blocage du root. Elle est donc compatible fairphone mais pas /e/.

    Bluetooth is not working with headphones or car microphone.
    USB-C defective after 3 Month.

    Besides that a flawless phone, great battery endurance, very good camera, fast enough.

      Hello there, the issue with the noise echo on calls over Bluetooth with a headset or the car system has been solved with the 0.18 udpdate. Thanks for downloading and installing this update.

    Last week the “deGoogled /e/-GS290” arrived and my first impression is very positive!!
    Initially I wanted to buy GS4 (Google). However, when looking at alternative operating systems I ended also up here and finally made up my mind to give it a try with /e/-GS290 (despite the lower overall spec and not removable battery). As far as I can judge the phone runs surprisingly good!!
    The device always formats the installed SD-Memory-card (in this case 128GB), when re-setting the phone back as how it was delivered; the device didn’t recognized the additional SD-card anymore (strange). Another issue occurred when installing loads of Apps, the pages were these are stored, reversed their order. Meanwhile the 4 apps at the bottom of the screen moved to the App page. After resetting phone again (and formatting of the SD-card again) the device does run normal again. Sound quality is not that great.
    I’m curious how long the battery will last in a normal day to day situation.
    All by all I don’t regret it at all I’ve purchased this /e/OS phone. It turned out to be a good choice!

    Key for me is “your data is YOUR data” – Let’s move away from Google & co – Thank you eFoundation!

    Bonjour à tous
    OK pour la bonne simplicité d’utilisation de l’IHM livrée par défaut (eOS android 10)
    OK pour la bonne autonomie de la batterie neuve
    Par contre, sur cet appareil, les performances de l’appareil photo sont très très moyennes
    Les boutons d’interface du même appareil photo sont un peu grossiers mais simples au final
    Juste un peu déçu par le rendu des photos : les bons réglages sont à trouver à l’utilisation.
