Did anybody here degoogle their Pixel 4a 5G?
If so, how did it go and how's the usability compared to stock Android it came with?
@ttntm I believe Pixel phones have a better security model than other Android phones which is why there are Pixel-specific custom ROMs. LineageOS just supports more devices. If you use LOS, you’ll have a similar level of privacy but your device will be less secure.
@kenny thanks, that's a good point actually.
Been looking into GrapheneOS that you recommended and it sounds good: https://www.blackdragon.se/index.php/articles/87-google-pixel-4a-5g-and-grapheneos
@ttntm i degoogled my 3a XL with GrapheneOS and am happy i did. Works great. A few apps have to be replaced by mobile websites but otherwise i like it.
@n0btc that's great, thanks for letting me know.
There's basically just one thing I need to get sorted out and that's an app I need for work 'cause it's incompatible with my work phone, won't even start. It's a PITA but I hope it can be resolved somehow.
