Like you I don't feel confortable with Android, yet I don't think one could
say Android on the FR is less free than any other free software.

The problem is not that it's not free but rather that its copyright owner
is willing to produce non-free phones with it. To be able to do that they
had to refuse to use the community software and create/buy their own. Then,
as a community, why should we support a software intentionaly designed to
create closed phones ?
