What is Best deGoogled Phone to use with Graphene OS?

1st: Know that Graphene OS only works on the Google Pixels.

2nd: The newest Pixels receive 7 years of support and updates. For those who like SMALLER PHONES, the Pixel 5, Pixel 4a 5G, and Pixel 4a will still receive extended support for 3 years. They are known as “legacy” devices. Don’t let this scare you off…as there are many still using Pixel 3’s running Graphene with no issues. They are just not as secure.

Also, for those who despise 5G (like myself), note that the Pixel 4a is the only remaining supported Pixel without any 5G capability. 5G can be turned off, but I have experienced AT&T somehow turning it back on, on a Pixel 6 Pro.

3rd: The below recommendations are from Graphene OS website:
“We recommend only purchasing one of the following devices for GrapheneOS due to better security and a minimum 5 year guarantee from launch for full security updates and other improvements:

  • Pixel 8 Pro — minimum 7 years support and hardware memory tagging support
  • Pixel 8 — minimum 7 years support and hardware memory tagging support
  • Pixel Fold
  • Pixel Tablet
  • Pixel 7a
  • Pixel 7 Pro
  • Pixel 7
  • Pixel 6a
  • Pixel 6 Pro
  • Pixel 6

8th generation Pixels provide a minimum guarantee of 7 years of support from launch instead of the previous 5 year minimum guarantee. 8th generation Pixels also bring support for the incredibly powerful hardware memory tagging security feature as part of moving to new ARMv9 CPU cores. GrapheneOS has experimental support for hardware memory tagging in hardened_malloc available as a user-facing option in the advanced security settings and is quickly moving towards having it enabled by default. It will be used more extensively in the future and is a game changer for protecting against exploitation.

Both 7th and 6th generation Pixels have a minimum guarantee of 5 years from launch. 7th generation Pixels are a year newer so they have an extra year of their guarantee remaining.

The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are all around improvements over the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro with a significantly better GPU and cellular radio along with an incremental CPU upgrade. The 7th generation Pixels are far more similar to the previous generation than any prior Pixels.

Pixel 7a is nearly the same as the Pixel 7 other than having slow wireless charging and weaker dust/water protection. Pixel 7a offers the best value when buying a new device.

The Pixel Tablet is a tablet variant of the 7th generation devices and the Pixel Fold is a hybrid phone/tablet. These share the same SoC and are nearly the same as the other 7th generation devices under the hood.

Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 6a can still be worth buying if you can get a good deal due to the long support time. They still have around 3 years of their minimum support guarantee remaining.”


So there you have it, short, sweet, and to the point. Hope this helps!
