How can I remove the microphone, cameras and/or sensors?

Let's say I buy a second-hand Google Pixel 8 Pro and I want to remove the devices cameras, microphone and/or sensors (i.e. accelerometer, etc.) in order to prevent any possible eavesdropping from hackers or other third-parties.

When I take the phone apart, where on the motherboard do I look and how do I remove those components?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@pixelitis you can't. Your phone checks those every time is starts up. Removing any of those will put your phone into a boot loop. I strongly suggest any phone other then a smartphone for your purpose. Something like a Light Phone or maybe even a Mindphone and my favorite the Punkt, should just be the right phones for your needs.
