True.  But it was not hard in android studio.

Mostly, at least the actual build tools.  Not sure about Android Studio
(IDE).  There are google proprietary libraries that are avoided in
f-droid builds, but some programs depend on them.

Certainly there is a free software ethics issue here.  But I find that
with nexus-branded devices on which you can install your own OS,
cyanogenmod (non-free firmwares, but mostly ok - but computers come with
non-free firmware built in usually) and f-droid (which really respects
software freedom), things are pretty much ok.  Compared to iOS it is
great :-)
