Even with a pinephone they can triangulate a user's position. At least with those you can keep identification out of it, or simply turn off the device.

To an extent. At least on 4G that isn't all that accurate if done ex-post. 5G is a different story...

Honestly, I am perfectly satisfied with 4G... why people feel the need for gigabit-speeds on a device with a 5-inch screen is a mystery to me and to lose yet more privacy in the process.

The standard answer is, "But it will enable the internet-of-things!!"

Um... your fridge needs a gigabit connection???
