CalyxOS / GrapheneOS

Has anyone had any luck with running either of these on a Google Pixel … experiences?

I would not try those 3rd party ROMs on a Pixel. You use a Pixel because of Google’s software, mainly camera, speech to text recognition, call screen, etc. You can not get the same experience on other Android phones.

I’d use a phone like OnePlus or Samsung, which has better hardware but bad software to explore those de-googled ROMs.

Yes, CalyxOS. It worked fine, but it just reminded me of why I continue to use an iPhone.

Functionally, everything works fine and very easy to install and revert back to stock. If your focus is privacy on an Android phone, these are both good options.
