As of right now, I am not using GrapheneOS. However, I do follow the development of the project for many months now, and I am very intrigued to try it, - especially since my current phone is screaming for a replacement.
In February, a tweet was posted on the official GrapheneOS twitter account, indicating they are trying to come out with their own device.
Now, a couple months have passed, and I wanted to ask some questions, regarding this:
1) Have their been any updates on how things are progressing with the custom phone?
2) What can I realistically expect from the custom GrapheneOS phone when it comes out? While I am sure the security side of things will be great, can we also expect good camera sensors, a good display, long batterytimes, great build quality etc? In other words: Can we expect that the overall quality will be similar to the pixel phones?
3) Is it worth waiting for the release of the custom phone, or should I instead try to pick up a pixel phone for now? I definitely want to go with GrapheneOS in the future, I am just unsure if I should pickup a pixel phone, or wait for their custom device.
