    Well, privacy and security from external sites and actors anyways.

    There's still the prying eye of Google themselves, which has every back door imagineable.

          The Android Studio IDE comes with an QEMU-based Android emulator, a virtual machine that lets you run Android on your computer and start, develop and test your applications.

                If you’re worried about security use AOSP without Google mobile services or a hardened Android OS like GrapheneOS.

                  Those selfish prick, boasting about privacy, but only for google devices. They don't bother with any other phone model.

                    Harsh words for an open source project, if you want more devices supported then help contribute.

                    It should also be clear that the expectation is for people to buy a device to run GrapheneOS, rather than GrapheneOS supporting their existing devices. This will only become more true if GrapheneOS is successful enough to accomplish the goal of having devices produced based on an SoC reference design with minor improvements for privacy and security. Broad device support is the opposite of what the project wants to achieve in the long term.
