Thinking about another option smart phone users can try (I currently
have no second smart phone).
Since I am new to smart phone usage, I figured out that one can use
a second smart phone without a SIM-Card and with WiFi disabled. :-)
This means to me, regardless if people would use Android with Termux
and GnuPG or a Linux smart phone that they simply create the messages
on the IMHO not (so easy?!) compromisable second offline smart phone and
then transfer securely the encrypted messages to the compromised online
usage smart phone.
