Trying to make Nokia 2 Googleless

Since the hardware of Nokia 2 is poor, I tried to remove Google related content and it runs fluently. That's why I called it "Googleless".

That's why I called it "Googleless". In fact the Chrome browser, calendar and message can be removed as well.
Imagine how to survive without Google could be difficult, but it's possible in China. 
To mod this phone, of course you have to unlock the bootloader. Since Nokia 2 is closed to EOL, I think nobody will mind unlocked bootloader.

    Of course Nokia without Google might be odd ,but most of the system apps are still replaceable

    TrueCaller->Replace with Phone,Messages app
    Chrome->Firefox,Opera Mini or Lite Version of popular apps
    Files->Plenty of apps are available

    So if started providing then it will end up in infinite suggestions but since google play services and play store must be replaced with other store like Opera(Bemobi) Mobile Store or other third party apps store,so that RAM will be optimised and chances of performance in that chip set will be high

    Regarding Boot loader Unlock,It's HMD who must initiate the Process by providing the app and then make developers to access the shell and install or modify the system apps,Although believing third party and providing the device details might be insecure and if went wrong there is no chance to get back the device to normal state since it's a rule that for unlocking process only, charges were taken not for entire A-Z process of a device

    Me also tried this when my Nokia 2 on Nougat. This is a screenshot I took when I disable all apps that I could disable in the app list...

    You don't need unlocked bootloader to remove the preinstalled apps/system apps.
    I removed chrome, google, youtube, maps etc via adb and installed go edition apps.

    Not only that, I also removed monitoring apps from Evenwell. 
    Evenwell monitoring apps also made the phone lags a lot, including Nokia phones exclusively in China.

    Yeah,I have also disabled that and now having Good Battery backup and even apps when pushed background also works well but issue still present where on reboot,power saver app doesn't optimize at all and need to be modified every time.Other than that Oreo in Nokia 2 works well with some slow app opening

    How did you unlock the bootloader ?
    As far as I can tell, NB1-Collision.
    Details can't be disclosed here, as HMD is closely monitoring me about hacking their devices.

    @BootloaderUnlockWhen
    Still Most of then had a scratch on this.When Nokia 8 has got boot loader unlock as said by users it has broken and even unable to use that,and HMD hasn't made any developments for that.I think @singhnsk has idea on this issue

    Maybe there is spyware in phone itself if you rooted it you can delete it fully and it's called Google and Google ads (in the settings) which ads will aggressively attack you while watching youtube videos you will see 10 ads in video with 3 minutes if you rooted your phone and installed Xposed and adaway you will kill them service and money partly so my guess either deal between Google and Nokia or something else we don't know yet ....

    There's no such thing. My 7 plus is rooted and i don't have so many ads on youtube like you are saying. It behaves normal as it was earlier. 🙂

    I wish I can do that ! At least I will continue build pie rom ! That's why I have installed Firefox browser on my phone and Firefox support adding add-ons on it like PC version so an adblocker add-on solved the issue to watch YouTube video on Firefox without ads but if I did in YouTube app the ads will be aggressively annoying
