With that all out of the way, what should I do now? Is Graphene still worth checking out or should I just go back to stock? I'm sick and tired of tinkering and dealing with all of these little compromises.

    The only reason to buy Pixels is Graphene why are you wasting time with Lineage??

      This is going to sound autistic as frick, but I felt like I didn't "need" Graphene. I wanted a mobile equivalent to Debian (long software support and stability) and Lineage seemed to match that description better. I also felt like I'd be overwhelmed with the amount of security-related settings.

        Nah, that's actually dialling back on the autism.

        I long time ago I discovered Nova Launcher, I've used it to keep the same UI between my last 3 phones especially during major OS version updates. My current phone ,being ~9 years old, works flawlessly with Lineage, but the "here have this 'new' phone as a gift" (some samsung thing, apparently it's quite good ? shrug ?) I got from a mate was not supported at all, I had to build the rom myself, and it's "janky" at best.

        I think over time the popularity of lineage hasn't helped, it used to be "I support these phones, and do it well", now it's bit hit and miss.

          Yeah, it seems like that's the case. Just wasting resources on Xiaopongmejeet shitslabs from 8 years ago.

          The only two major drawbacks with GrapheneOS from my experience:
          1. The GPS privacy setting makes it way worse, at least in my experience. But you can turn that off and use the standard GPS setting that sends your nudes to George Soros or w/e
          2. You can't root.

          Overall I recommend it, especially now that android auto works.

          Okay, good to know.

        I wouldn't worry too much anon. GrapheneOS works out of the box and even if you don't use profiles or the other stuff it's still miles better in comparison to stock or other OSes ("ROMs"). I basically use it like I would use stock but with all the built-in security/privay benefits

      For me, I can't reverse the navigation buttons on Graphene.

      Because PCs grew organically and smartphone were forced into the market by a designing company. Everyone would laugh at you if you sold locked down PCs, well I guess the designing company does it still

    Why tf would you install Lineage when you have a Pixel that supports Graphene? Lineage is for poor people stuck on Samsung ewaste.
