Custom Rom 'GrapheneOS' for Andoid devices to get rid of Google completely
It's quite paradoxical, but it takes Google 'Pixel' devices to completely ban Google from these devices.
Also recommended by IT security researcher, expert Mike Kuketz.

I bought a Pixel 6A recently and I flashed it w/ GrapheneOS. Just final polishes, infrequently use apps, and all done!.
Hope you are still happy with it and no problems have arisen.

@ingolftopf I'm quite happy with the choice I made by buying the #Pixel6A to have #GrapheneOS, lots of good things and only a few concessions have to be made for security and privacy.
The bad thing is the apps, the most important (for me) is that I don't have the 360º mode and panoramics (GCam port) it doesn't show me the photos I've already taken. And
I don't have a TTS engine that would be useful for GPS directions.I found a TTS engine without Google dependency, isn't the most awesome voice but is understable and in my language. (for OSMAnd+)
Apart this, % pleased:
Good pics, good battery life...good security, apps behind the line...sun is shinning and an user is happy, what else?

Thank you for your detailed description.
Small note, "#Pixel6A", # is not necessary here, does not work here, only on Vivaldi 'Mastodon' https://social.vivaldi.net/
