    My friend's been running LineageOS with Microg[0], I'm waiting on a Pixel so I can run CalyxOS (with Microg) because I'm not keen on the security downsides of Lineage. He says it's been an incredibly stable set up. GrapheneOS is a great alternative to Calyx from what I've read, if you rely less on play store apps that require google Android APIs (that Microg also implements). GrapheneOS vs CalyxOS is a trade between convience+pretty good privacy (Calyx) and better security+privacy (GrapheneOS, as when you do use proprietary apps relying on Gapps it's all sandboxed).
