you have to trust the phone at an operating system level. if you can’t do that, then it doesn’t matter what privacy tools you install.

Put LineageOS or PostmarketOS on it.

Make sure not to install google apps when using LineageOS.

...and if you prefer a smartphone being smart, don't install PostmarketOS just yet.

Lineage and Postmarket seem to be pretty terrible. They might be good for tinkering and customization, but not for security.

I’d only recommend GrapheneOS, CalyxOS, or iOS.

De-googling Android is a challenge that's why projects like Librem 5 and Pinephone are important.

Linux phones are… not great to say the least. But afaik GrapheneOS is completely de-gooogled and looks like a far better alternative in terms of privacy and also usability. Just about every other ROM I’ve found (except maybe Calyx) has issues with security as well.
