Have been staunchly anti-Google for a few years now, though YouTube is hard to replace (never see ads, lost my account when they forced Gmail requirement). I don't even use Google on my Android phone; ownCloud (Contacts/Files/Calendar) + FDroid/Amazon (Apps) + HERE WeGo (Maps) + Fennec FDroid (Browser).

Edit: To answer the question, I do use DDG as my primary search engine on all platforms (PC, phone, tablet).

I've never heard of Here WeGo? Is it worth getting? I'm currently using OsmAnd due to it's offline maps and navigation.

It was developed by Nokia and works great IMO. I tried OsmAnd once and deleted it same day. YMMV.

Have you tried OpenMaps? what do you think of that?

Sorry, I have not tried OpenMaps. I originally tried Mapfactor Navigator and hated it, then discovered HERE and have liked it enough that I haven't bothered trying other map apps (save OsmAnd, which I didn't care for).

Android is open source. There's multiple pseudoforks that have nothing to do with Google.

I get that it's difficult to understand, but I have CyanogenMod (now LineageOS) installed without GApps (Google Apps). There is no proprietary Google code in CyanogenMod as it's based on AOSP, the Android Open Source Project.
