What are the most privacy respecting smartphones to buy, I am also looking for the one which respects your privacy the most. So far going to privacy communities esp on reddit, I often see Google Pixel + GrapheneOS being recommended.

But the thing is I don’t really trust Google with privacy, as we have seen they are last one to respect privacy. What if Google has some backdoor in the hardware that cannot be changed? And the problem with the more privacy respecting OSes for mobiles like GrapheneOS, CalyxOS etc are that they are only supported for Google pixel phones.

So I am really confused here.

    The question is “which smartphones are most private?” Not “which OS community is the least toxic?” Seems you have your reasons for hating on Graphene, but you’ve totally lost the plot here. Save that rant for a question thats actually asking about it, please. In the end, if it works and its the most private, thats what is going to matter the most to the end user.

      GrapheneOS community is terrible if you want help from them. It is a place filled with faux elitists with 4chan and reddit tier knowledge, and will use buzzwords to impress you, with non existent explanations when asked for. If you want to use it, go ahead. But if you want to enter a landmine expecting any guidance, good luck.

      Many people have been driven away from that community and ROM for plenty reasons I laid out in parent comment. People learn only via 2 ways - they learn from others’ experiences or they experience it themselves and then learn. You can make your choice.
