I have to say also as someone that has started on the regaining of privacy a few years ago one step at a time, and a new android user in the last year, and new to Graphene in last month, although there is a learning curve to swapping your "mainstream" apps for FOSS on your newly private phone, (even more so coming from iphone) - that Graphene is about as straight forward and slick for people just starting out.
This is in terms of the web installer, UI, support forum, thinking of basic users as well as advanced, all of it. It shows the people behind and involved in Graphene care.
I have had some experience with a fairly new to market privacy phone and OS and as much as I support it and use multiple other services from that company, the switch to using that OS as a daily driver was still too glitchy with connectivity and update issues. (for me)
Graphene was the best choice, and I believe would be for people that maybe are not tech savvy but willing to learn a bit, or have someone in their life to show them the ropes.
The biggest thing I think that Graphene helps with is making the compatibility issue as pain free as possible to get and keep people interested and continuing with their privacy quest.
Thank you to all,
from a new user in the great white north
