GrapheneOS, one year later

About a year ago I sold my iPhone 13 Mini and bought a Pixel 6a. I wanted to try out GrapheneOS. Here we are, one year later. My thoughts are still the same as the first day I used it. I love it. GrapheneOS is fast, responsive, without bloat and full of privacy settings.

With the recent release of Android 14 I thought: let’s go back to regular Android and see how I like that. So I installed Android and after 30 minutes of playing with it, I said hell no and went straight back to GrapheneOS.

Regular Android feels extra slow and weird after using something as lightweight as GrapheneOS. I have no intention of switching back to Android anytime soon.
