File: Graphene or Calyx.png (60 KB, 1738x600)

I am thinking of getting a Pixel (4 XL) because of the power of its chipset, but I'm not sure which custom ROM would be good for my needs.
I've heard both are good for security (and privacy), but Calyx is a bit friendlier to games and such, while Graphene sacrifices some of that to be more secure.
Specifically, I want to primarily game using it, both emulators (like Dolphin) and some PlayStore games. I'm not sure if MicroG (which Calyx uses) would cause problems for the PlayStore games, beyond just messing up in-app transactions (which I don't do, ever).

Any help from more experienced users would be great.

Heard that before but I don't think it's actually true, I think that came from Calyx integrating MicroG while Graphene refused, but Graphene's approach of sandboxing Google Play gave it better compatibility in the end. I wouldn't use it on anything older than a Pixel 6 though because of the five year security update period. (GrapheneOS phoneposter here)

Hmm, so then I should probably go with Calyx anyways? I don't have any intention of going for the newer models, partly because of price ($200~ refurbished) and lack of 5G.
I think that perception also came from people having weird hiccups and qircks trying to run "normal" apps in Graphene. But, I'm not sure how much has been patched, so it could be different for modern versions.

Should I pick Calyx, if it's not recommended to go with Graphene for security reasons (phone too old)?
