Privacy-friendly Mobile Phone

After weeks of thorough research on privacy-friendly mobile operating systems, I decide on GrapheneOS. It supports Verified Boot and requires a security chip that only Google's Pixel series offers. So I buy a Google Pixel 7 Pro.

You can find the websites and YouTube videos that helped me to decide at the end of this review at Reference. This will be supplemented from time to time. Some more excellent sources can be found in my German-language version of this test report.

Setup

DNS Resolver + Firewall

12.03.2023: NextDNS configured conveniently in the browser window on my MacBook Air M2. This DNS resolver for Private DNS is also a firewall at DNS level – works on all devices! No app required! I have created and installed profiles for iPhones and MacBook.

14.03.2023: Setting on Google Pixel 7 Pro:
1. Preferences → Network & Internet → Extended → Private DNS.
2. Select the option: Host name of the provider for Private DNS.
3. Enter NextDNS domain from customer menu, save, done.

Dual SIM

The Pixel 7 Pro offers Dual SIM ex works by means of a SIM card drawer for a nano-SIM and an eSIM chip for tariff profiles from network operators.

13.03.2023: From tomorrow, I will use my o2 Free Unlimited Max Online tariff previously used with an eSIM in iPhone 14 Pro Max with eSIM in my new Pixel 7 Pro. Therefore, I order a replacement eSIM via “My o2” app.

14.03.2023: After unpacking, I activate the replacement eSIM I ordered yesterday with tariff profile “o2 Free Unlimited Max Online (2021)”. After a short function test, I replace Android OS with GrapheneOS.

16.03.2023: Now I want use my main phone number previously used with Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max with eSIM and o2 Free S Boost tariff with my new Pixel 7 Pro. Ordering a replacement SIM using the “My o2” app. Changing from eSIM to physical SIM is very expensive: 29.99 EUR! Sad Smiley

21.03.2023: I read on the internet that Google's current Pixel 7 & 7 Pro models have allegedly subsequently received the “Dual eSIM” function by the March 2023 software update (Google's first “feature drop”) and that a physical SIM card is no longer required. Hence I try to revoke my SIM card exchange at Telefónica.

06.04.2023: Because Dual eSIM doesn't work yet (see below), I now use the very expensive physical SIM for my main phone number after all.

GrapheneOS

Installing GrapheneOS according to step-by-step instructions.
In this process, the factory-installed operating system is replaced by the alternative operating system GrapheneOS (technical term: "flashed").

Dual eSIM

21.03.2023: Since Telefónica does not allow you to move eSIMs from one device to another, I order a free replacement eSIM.
The procedure actually works quickly and easily, but requires “sandboxed Google Play installation” on the Pixel 7 Pro with GrapheneOS. Otherwise, “privileged eSIM management” cannot be activated. After setting up, the “sandboxed Google Play installation” can be removed again.

Unfortunately, at the point where the QR code of the eSIM is supposed to be scanned, I only get an error message. I try a few more times later, but it doesn't work.

24.03.2023: I suspect that the second eSIM can only be installed with Android OS and I make a backup of my GrapheneOS installation in order to reinstall (“flash”) the original Android OS afterwards.

I don't want to contact Telefónica's service before I have tried it out myself. Besides, this way I also gain experience with resetting to factory settings right away. It costs time, but no money, so I'm investing this time for another experience…

Installation of Android OS 13 according to step-by-step instructions works fine. Then go back to the settings menu “Network & Internet” and try again to load the eSIM profile. Unfortunately, the scan process terminates at the same point with the same error message as under GrapheneOS with privileged eSIM management! Documentation with screenshots. Two hours later I install GrapheneOS again ... (think about Queen's song: “Flash! Aah!”)

06.04.2023: New try to get second eSIM working…
Unfortunately, only “SIM slot 2” is addressed for eSIM. So the Pixel 7 Pro is not yet capable of Dual eSIM.

11.04.2023: I read in the o2 community that Dual eSIM only works with the beta version (build number T3B2.230316.003). I'm afraid I've been taken in by a lousy journalist! Angry Smiley

User Profiles

25.03.2023: Extra user profile created for Google-dependent apps. To keep the main profile Google-free, I created a second user and installed “sandboxed Google Play” in it. The latter is very easy thanks to the GrapheneOS repository “Apps”.

Whether the Pixel 7 Pro is operated with one phone number (one SIM card/eSIM) or two phone numbers in parallel (Dual SIM/Dual eSIM) would only make a noticeable difference to energy consumption if two mobile networks with different reception quality are used. For my usage profiles, I used Dual SIM with one SIM card and one eSIM (both Telefónica o2) until 13 November 2023. Now I only use one eSIM.

Tip

An online password safe makes handling much easier.
Actually, I prefer local password managers and avoid online services. But if you want to use two user profiles that are completely isolated from each other, it becomes very cumbersome.

Password-protected apps of the second user profile are unusable without access to the password manager in the owner profile. It does not help to pass through apps for e-mail, messaging or a password safe from the owner profile or even to install them twice. Such apps cannot be copied together with credentials. They also ask for credentials after every start in the second user profile. Since I only use very secure, very long passwords, nothing works without a password safe.
I would often have to copy a KeePass file via USB memory stick.

Password Manager

That's why I'm now testing Bitwarden, the only platform-independent open-source online password manager. It is really very secure and yet very user-friendly! I use the app for both profiles and thus have access to all passwords at all times. Bitwarden can and should definitely be protected by 2FAAegis Authenticator fulfils this purpose excellently – for both profiles.

App Store

Thanks to GrapheneOS, your phone really belongs to you!
Your phone does not need to be activated by a manufacturer!
No forced registration and no unwanted apps!
This is a very pleasant experience!

Pros and cons at the same time: there is no pre-installed app store.
But you can install the app store you trust yourself!
Obtain software directly from the developer you trust!
However, particularly secure and hardened apps are pre-installed.

After a fresh installation, the start screen is almost empty: only the phone, SMS, settings, browser and camera are on the start bar. The gallery is the only app above it. Nothing else is visible.
Only the swipe up gesture makes all installed apps visible:
Apps: GrapheneOS repository – here you can set whether and how often updates should be checked for and whether they should be installed automatically. Google Play Services can be installed if required and then run in a non-privileged sandbox.
Auditor: test the integrity of a GrapheneOS installation. If you have a second Android smartphone available, you can install this app on it and then check the smartphone with GrapheneOS from the smartphone with stock Android or GrapheneOS. If both smartphones are running GrapheneOS, they can check each other.
Camera: the GrapheneOS camera software supplied.
Files: the file manager.
Settings: This is used to configure the entire smartphone.
Gallery: This allows you to view all the pictures, like a photo album.
Info Services: SIM Toolkit. Included on every mobile phone.
Contacts: the phone book on the smartphone.
PDF Viewer: every user needs, therefore already supplied.
Calculator: the mobile pocket calculator. Everyone needs one.
SMS/MMS: Standard app for short messages.
Telephone: Standard app for telephony.
Clock: World clock, timer, stopwatch and alarm clock.
Vanadium: privacy-friendly version of the Chromium browser.

I used Aurora Droid and Aurora Store to install apps.
These serve as a front end for repos of F-Droid and Google respectively.

The Aurora developer can no longer maintain two app stores due to time constraints – the development of Aurora Droid has been discontinued.
But I found a good alternative: Neo Store.
In the meantime, I use Obtainium instead.

Neo Store

More informative front end to the F-Droid repository. Also provides links to repos (package sources) from developers and companies that have their apps listed with F-Droid. Some of these are already set up in the app.
Other external repos, e.g. from Threema Libre, Session F-Droid and NewPipe, can be added manually.
Disadvantage compared to Aurora Droid: no barcode scanning possible.
Instead, there are these input fields:
1. Address (Web address, aka URL)
2. Fingerprint (optional)
3. Username (optional)
4. Password (optional)

Manual Addition of Package Sources needs small Modifications

  • Some providers enter the web address for their repo starting with fdroidrepos://
  • However, Aurora Droid and Neo Store expect a URL starting with https://
  • F-Droid uses a URL including fingerprint for the entire link
  • Aurora Droid and Neo Store expect fingerprint input in a separate input field

Modification explained using the Example of Threema Libre

  1. Address (Web address; omit everything from “?fingerprint=”!)
    https://releases.threema.ch/fdroid/repo
  2. Fingerprint (omit “?fingerprint=” from URL)
    5734E753899B25775D90FE85362A49866E05AC4F83C05BEF5A92880D2910639E
  3. Username (not necessary, as it is not your own repository)
  4. Password (not necessary, as it is not your own repository)

Once successfully added, your entry will appear in the list of package sources (repos). To ensure that it is taken into account by Neo Store for display in the app overview and for updates, simply tap on it. Done.

Then use the app selection/app search view again.
You can access the useful filter function at the top right.

Aurora Store

More informative, prettier frontend for Google's repository.
The Aurora Store shows which apps want to spy on you (trackers)!
There is a useful filter for the search:
• Google Service Framework (GSF) required
• Advertising
• free of charge

Login with

Google
Anonymous

There are two types of registration: your own Google account or anonymous.
• Anyone who has previously purchased apps from Google Play can log in with this Google account and download these apps again or purchase new interesting paid apps. Apps that have already been paid for will not be charged again.
• Only free apps can be downloaded anonymously. Many free apps contain adverts and spy on customer data!

Warning

You are violating Google's terms of use if you use the Aurora Store!
If you sign in there with your own Google account, you may lose it!
• Never use Aurora Store with a Google account that you urgently need!
• Anonymous user accounts/access data of the Aurora Store are international, i.e. you may be offered app versions for download that are not suitable for your country.
• To download apps previously purchased from Google, it is better to install Sandboxed Google Play and use the Google Play Store directly.
• If you have a separate, anonymous Google account, you can use this for app purchases instead.
• The developers of GrapheneOS recommend the use of Sandboxed Google Play and advise against using the Aurora Store!

Tip

Install as few apps as possible, because any app can theoretically become a security risk at some point. Be it through a developer's mistake or through the sale of an app or entire software forge to a dubious company (the latter has happened several times, fortunately none of my apps have been affected so far).

Google Play

The installation and use of apps is a matter of trust.
If you don't know enough about them, you might simply trust Google Play and pay attention to a high number of downloads, star ratings and don't just read the positive reviews. To avoid falling for plagiarism (cleverly copied apps), it is worth paying attention to small details in the design and texts.

Obtain Apps directly from Developers

If you have been very satisfied with apps for years, you might want to know more about the people who deliver this quality at some point?
If you like to invest some time in research to get the best possible software, you will also want to find out about good developers.

Most providers of Open Source software use GitHub, GitLab or Codeberg as platform for development and distribution.

Obtainium

The Obtainium app makes it easier to install and update open source software. Instead of manually requesting the website or platform of each individual app every few days/weeks and searching for updates, let Obtainium automatically check every x hours and be notified when there are updates. Install Obtainium from GitHub and configure all your app sources once. Search function for sources at GitHub, GitLab, Codeberg and F-Droid's official repo. HTML websites with download links can also be configured.

Backup

GrapheneOS already has integrated backup software: Seedvault.
Because this software has its flaws, the developers will replace it with a better solution as soon as possible. However, this project does not seem to be a high priority.

That doesn't bother me, as I use apps that save their data locally in a backup folder, from where I can back it up to an SD card.
And I use Tuta for mails, calendar and contacts.

The current GrapheneOS version no longer supports data exchange with a desktop computer using MTP and PTP protocols. Their use has long been discouraged in the FAQs because you have to trust the computer. This could be contaminated with a Trojan and transfer malicious code to the smartphone. Quote:

Since you need to trust the computer, we recommend transferring the files with a flash drive or sending them to yourself via an encrypted end-to-end messaging app.

This is no real disadvantage, because it works anytime and anywhere without being dependent on a desktop computer and is ideal for anyone who does not have a desktop computer – a USB memory stick with sufficient storage space or a USB card reader with an SD card is all you need!

Tips

A small mobile USB-C card reader (with slots for microSD + SD) is more flexible and sustainable than a USB memory stick.

Perhaps you still have unworn microSD cards from your last smartphones or SD cards purchased for a camera lying unused in a drawer?

To be on the safe side, use several SD cards alternately.

If you have email with end-to-end encryption (e.g. Tuta Mail), you can send backups of up to 25 MB as email file attachments.
Sending smaller files is also possible with Threema and Session.

Battery Performance

Battery Saving

To protect the non-self-replaceable battery, I rarely push it to its limits, as this wears it out unnecessarily.
I charge it when there is about 30% charge remaining.

If you always leave the battery almost empty and only then charge it to 100%, you are stressing it and using up a full charging cycle.

The charging electronics of current devices switch to direct power supply from the power adapter once 100% of the battery has been reached.
However, this only works with the manufacturer's original power supply unit, if they have actually implemented this function.
As I usually charge smartphone batteries via USB-C on my MacBook, I can't use this and therefore only charge up to 65–70%.

Low-Power Mode

Set Timetable

• No activation according to timetable
• Activation according to set battery level
   (selectable in steps of five: 10 to 75%)

I have set 35%. If I do not think about charging in time, the energy consumption is already throttled and until 30% remaining charge is reached, I will (hopefully) still notice the need for charging in time.

Battery Warning

Because the BatteryBot Pro app can only warn me about values below/above five, I set it to 35%. And as soon as 65% is exceeded, I also let myself be warned and continue charging until 70% or disconnect at 66% if I won't be able to see the charging indicator afterwards.

Battery Charging Method

Slow Charging

Battery-saving slow charging: to do this, I plug the USB-A adapter of the "Long-Life Cable USB-C to USB-C 3.2" into a socket on the USB Hub D-Link DUB-H7 and the USB-C plug at the other end of the 1.2 m long nylon reinforced charging cable into the USB-C socket on the Google Pixel 7 Pro.
I haven't even tried that yet.

Fast Charging

Google's 30W USB-C power charger charges the battery of the Pixel 7 Pro within 20 min from 30% to 66%. Its temperature rises to around 35 °C within 12 minutes and finally reaches 38 °C within 18 minutes.
For fast charging, also Apple's 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter is suitable or the lower front socket on the Anker PowerExpands Elite (labelled with “PD”). But I prefer to charge directly on the Apple MacBook Air M2, using the 1 metre USB-C® to USB-C connection cable supplied. This takes a little longer, but is gentler. The battery doesn't get very warm (max. 40 °C in summer, otherwise usually below 30 °C).

Wireless Charging

Google's Pixel Stand (2. Gen.) supports wireless charging for Pixel Pro models with 23 watts. Other Pixel models are charged with 21 watts and devices from other manufacturers are charged with up to 15 watts.

When used with GrapheneOS, only the optimised charge is available.
Under Google's Android OS, you can choose between …

Optimised

Charging is optimised based on your usage. Recommended for most situations.

Max.

Your device will be charged as quickly as possible. The fan may become louder at times.

Silent

Minimises noise by limiting the fan speed. Device may charge more slowly.

Battery Protocol

I can save myself manual logging thanks to BatteryBot Pro. This app had already made battery maintenance easier for me back in 2013 (alarm times for falling below and exceeding any charge level in 5 percent steps and any temperature, battery status and log).

No charging percentage display is set at ex-works and no screenshots are possible during the first initial start-up dialogues.
So I could not determine the first operating time exactly.

After switching on the phone for the first time, the start-up procedure cannot be interrupted and the battery status is only displayed as a small symbol. That's why I can't see the battery status as a percentage. Only then can I finally switch to the percentage display.

Charging Time

You can expect these charging times – sorted chronologically.
Charging times depend on how many devices are charged simultaneously with Apple's 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter. For example, a battery charge from 30% to 66% can take 50 minutes or 39 minutes.

Battery Life (Time after Battery Charge until next Charge)

I am cautious about making statements about the regular runtime. During the setup and familiarisation phase, a smartphone is used much more intensively than later in everyday life.

Comparable values can only be obtained after a few weeks of operation.
That's why I log everything for a while.

Hopefully, my notes will help you to assess how long the battery could last in your everyday life.

Manufacturer's information: More than 24 hours of battery life.
The real battery life depends on the personal usage profile.

Usage Profiles

Standby
Low Usage
Moderate Usage
Heavy Usage
Extreme Usage

Hours may still change, until then initial details.

Uniform for all Profiles

Settings for night/ display/ mobile radio

Night

Flight and low-power mode active (about 9 hours per night).
My Pixel 7 Pro always consumes around 2% energy in this mode.
I document deviations in the battery log.

​​​​Display

Approx. 50% brightness, automatic, switches off after 30 seconds.
Dark design. Night light 22:00–08:00. Natural colours.
Screen resolution: Full resolution (1440 × 3120 pixels).
Smooth display (refresh rate 1–120 Hz).
Always display time and information: No.
Activate display for notifications: No.

Mobile Radio

Good 5G reception (display always shows “5G” with four to five bars).

According to Google, the Pixel 7 Pro supports Dual SIM with one plastic SIM card and one eSIM or parallel use of two eSIM profiles (MEP aka Dual eSIM). However, my Pixel 7 Pro does not support Dual eSIM!

Until 13.11.2023 I had used Dual SIM with SIM card and eSIM (both by Telefónica o2). Since then, only the eSIM is in use.

Standby

80 h (?) lying unused on the table.
Bluetooth off, WLAN off.
Not tested yet, because it is in use as second phone.

Low Usage

About 72 h: E-Mails, Calendar, Internet, Session Messenger.
Bluetooth off, WLAN off.

Moderate Usage

Approx. 24 h: E-Mails, Calendar, Internet, Session Messenger.
Bluetooth off, WLAN off.

Heavy Usage

About 10 h: E-Mails, Calendar, Internet, Session Messenger.
Bluetooth off, WLAN on (as hotspot, also for TV streaming).

Extreme Usage

About 5:00 h: E-Mails, Calendar, Internet, Session Messenger.
Bluetooth off, WLAN on (as hotspot, also for TV streaming).

Remarks and Details

14.03.2023: Here I will comment on charging times/special features.
28.03.2023: Long use as WLAN Hotspot for Apple's updates.
29.03.2023: Use as a WLAN hotspot for the latest iOS update.
11.04.2023: No mistake: two charges on one day.
20.04.2023: Battery charging takes longer today: the energy-supplying MacBook Air M2 urgently needs a battery charge itself and is already charging the iPhone 11 Pro, whose battery is almost empty. In addition, the Pixel 7 Pro temporarily serves as a WLAN hotspot at 5 GHz because the iPhone 11 Pro only supports 2.4 GHz as a hotspot and this WLAN frequency band sometimes is completely overloaded.
20.04.2023: No mistake: two charges on one day.
24.04.2023: Battery charge finished at 59%. Let's see if the battery lasts as long as it usually does at 70% with low-power mode activated.
25.04.2023: Heavy use today, so no comparison of consumption with yesterday possible.
28.04.2023: No mistake: two charges on one day.
02.05.2023: WiFi hotspot for MacBook Air M2, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone Xs for updates: macOS 13.3.1 (a), iOS 16.4.1 (a) and iOS 16.5 Public Beta 3.
02.05.2023: No mistake: two charges on one day.
05.05.2023: As a test, low-power mode remains on this time.
06.05.2023: As a precaution, I decided to recharge the battery before going to bed with 35% charge remaining. Before that, I used the Pixel 7 Pro a little bit and the battery was already at 33% remaining charge. If I had set the phone to flight mode a little earlier for the night, another 10 h of operating time would have been possible with subsequent battery charging at 30% remaining. So approx. 36 h with power-saving mode active throughout. 5 h more than without low-power mode.
06.06.2023: WiFi hotspot for MacBook Air M2, because the WiFi connection between MacBook and iPhone 11 Pro was unstable while streaming.
29.06.2023: My MacBook Air M2 is charging Google Pixel 7 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro in parallel today. Hence the longer charging process.
02.07.2023: WiFi Hotspot for MacBook Air M2, because the WiFi connection between MacBook and iPhone 11 Pro is way too unstable today. I guess since last iOS update my MacBook Air M2 has more problems to keep a WiFi connection with my iPhone 11 Pro, which serves as WiFi hotspot. And today I really need a reliable internet connection to save my edited web pages.
05.07.2023: WiFi hotspot for MacBook Air M2 and iPhone Xs. For the latter Apple offers an update: iOS 16.6 Public Beta 4. But the estimated download time varies between 1 and 4 hours and I have to stop this for now.
26.07.2023: Messenger app Jami and UnifiedPush app ntfy installed for testing.
28.07.2023: Messenger Jami in combination with the UnifiedPush app ntfy has no negative impact on energy consumption.
For lack of a human test partner, I uninstalled Jami.
29.07.2023: SimpleX beta version 5.3 installed on a trial basis. Notifications set periodically (every 10 min.) to keep energy consumption as low as possible but not to miss any chats.
31.07.2023: Notification service of SimpleX switched to “always active” on a trial basis after battery charge. This then consumed a lot of energy and therefore the battery only lasted 18:12 h this time.
Found a test partner for Jami. So I reinstalled the messenger with UnifiedPush app ntfy. Let's see how the energy consumption behaves in normal chat and voice call. SimpleX uninstalled.
01.08.2023: Although I used Session for reading and writing in communities and did tests with Jami, the battery already lasts longer than before with SimpleX in notification mode “always active”.
06.08.2023: Uninstalled Jami because the power consumption is too high for me and the iOS version of the app is far too buggy to do test chats with my iPhones or recommend it to friends with iPhones.
07.08.2023: When uninstalling Jami, I forgot to delete the UnifiedPush app ntfy as well, which is why the energy consumption is not yet quite as good as it was before I tested Jami.
27.08.2023: When the battery in the MacBook Air M2 has only about 30% remaining charge, its power adapter does not manage to supply two connected smartphones with enough energy. Instead, its battery continues to drain and sleep mode is activated at 10%!
I therefore stopped charging the Pixel 7 Pro (at 64%) and iPhone Xs (at 50%). Without smartphones, the battery charge of the MacBook progressed again and is already at 33% 12 minutes later.
21.09.2023: There are urgent security updates for iOS and macOS. The Wi-Fi Hotspot function is much more reliable and faster on the Pixel 7 Pro (not only because of 5G), so the Pixel 7 Pro serves as a hotspot during its battery charge. At 63% charge, the Apple MacBook Air M2 boots and the battery charge ends. I leave it at that.
12.10.2023: Installed the messenger SimpleX again. Tested this time with constantly active background service: "App battery usage: Unrestricted in background". This consumes about 1% energy every 20 minutes as long as SimpleX is running "only in the background" (much more in the foreground). More than 24 hours of operating time is therefore unthinkable. For comparison: without SimpleX, 48 hours is easily possible with little use.
16.10.2023: Before the end of the battery charge, I changed the notification service of SimpleX to "Only active when the app is open". Since I only test this app sporadically to observe the development with a single contact, this is acceptable. We use another messenger such as Threema or Session to talk about when we will test SimpleX together again. Otherwise, everyone has a second device. Wink Smiley
18.10.2023: To get access for setup menu “privileged eSIM management”, I install “Sandboxed Google Play” in the owner profile. The replacement SIM card I ordered will only arrive in the next few days, so I leave “Sandboxed Google Play” active until then and use Google's Push Notification Service for the Messengers Session and SimpleX on a trial basis.
26.10.2023: Thanks to Google's Push Notification Service, the energy consumption of the SimpleX messenger is very low. Ordered replacement SIM card has arrived (Telefónica has recently started offering 5G SA for suitable smartphones – because this does not (yet) work with eSIMs, these can be replaced with SIM cards free of charge if the 5G pack “5G Plus” is booked). Because the network display late in the evening still shows “Welcome” instead of “o2.de”, I exceptionally do not activate flight mode this night and the low-power mode also remains deactivated.
28.10.2023: The operating time is somewhat lower this time because neither flight mode nor low-power mode was used at night. About every 50 min. 1% energy was consumed. A good value.
29.10.2023: Last night without flight mode. Low-power mode until battery charge. Battery lasted 4 h longer with about the same low use.
30.10.2023: Now again (only) at night flight mode + low-power mode. This way the battery lasted 42:16 h instead of 24 h with little use. Great!
31.10.2023: The Pixel 7 Pro serves as a WLAN hotspot for hours in the evening because the MacBook Air M2 cannot connect to the iPhone 11 Pro (WLAN channels in the 2.4 GHz range are full).
01.11.2023: Despite yesterday's hotspot operation, still good operating time.
13.11.2023: From today, the operating times will be longer because the Pixel 7 Pro is no longer the main phone and is not yet permanently used as a Wi-Fi hotspot.
22.11.2023: The battery lasted just under three days and that was almost exclusively on standby, as I almost exclusively used my new Pixel 8 Pro.
01.12.2023: No mistake: two charges on one day.
03.12.2023: Since I have installed SimpleX again on a trial basis and this time set its notification service to “Always active”, this app eats up far too much energy (64%) when unused in the background. I am now putting an end to this: switching to “Only active when app is open”. Not really being used at the moment. I am monitoring its development.
27.12.2023: Second user profile deleted because the fingerprint scanner with current GrapheneOS version only works in the owner profile. 
30.12.2023: Sandboxed Google Play services uninstalled.
05.01.2024: SimpleX has improved a few things in the last update, so I'm switching the notifications back to “Always active” and the battery usage to “Unlimited”. Maybe the energy consumption really is a bit lower now? I'll keep an eye on it…
09.01.2024: 24 h operating time is unfortunately impossible with SimpleX. Switch back to “Only active when app is open”.
21.01.2024: Beta version 5.5 of SimpleX has been released. Supposedly it consumes less energy. I am very curious and update to this beta version, set notification to “Always active” and battery usage to “Unlimited”.
22.01.2024: The energy consumption of SimpleX remains high. In standby, the Pixel 7 Pro consumed 1% every 15 minutes! I have therefore changed the notification to "Periodic" (every 10 min.).
25.01.2024: SimpleX has consumed much less energy since the configuration change on 22.01.2024. Although not directly accessible for voice calls, messages arrive quickly. Calls can be announced in this way. Calls are signalled when both users have the app in the foreground.
18.02.2024: Got consistent info from two actually competent people about battery charging technology, according to which modern charging electronics decouple the battery from the mains when 100% is reached, supply the device directly with power, thus protecting the battery. Nice theory!
28.02.2024: Data volume used up, therefore daily Wi-Fi from today.
05.03.2024: Test battery fast charging with Google's USB-C Power Charger: initially (30% charge remaining) the temperature is 22 °C, rises slowly and reaches 38 °C from 61% charge, where it remains until 70% charge. Thereafter, the temperature slowly drops to only 26 °C at 100%.
09.03.2024: Due to used data volume, I used WLAN every day, which also saved energy.
17.03.2024: Due to used data volume, I used WLAN every day, which also saved energy.
19.03.2024: Since yesterday, data via mobile radio instead of WLAN, recognisable by the increased energy requirement/shorter battery life.
14.05.2024: Sandboxed Google Play Services installed. Background usage with optimised energy consumption configured for all three apps (Google Play Services, Google Services Framework and Google Play Store). Test whether this affects energy consumption. Without sandboxed Google Play Services, consumption during idle time was 1% energy per hour.

Battery Logging

BatteryBot Pro makes it much easier to record measurements. In addition, I take screenshots at start of charging, end of charging and at relevant status changes such as flight mode on/off in order to be able to clarify discrepancies later and in case BatteryBot Pro does not write an event in the log.

Music Player

20.03.2023: A chat friend recommends me the music player Metro and gives me the developer's Github URL. I also search this app at Aurora Droid and find: Metro – A music player for Android.
I have been looking for something like this! – A wonderful tool to reorganise my music collection, which was messed up by Apple – so I can conveniently download the right album covers from the internet for those deleted or incorrectly assigned by Apple.

After restoring the album cover of my favourite house dance CD “Felix: #1” as a test, I immediately listen to the album. It's not to everyone's taste, but I like this album. Play tip: Track #4: “Stars”. Goosebumps ...

Afterwards, I test the sound quality further with the listening test CD “Stakkato” from the German Hi-Fi magazine “Audio”. Musical instruments: Boesendorfer Imperial grand piano, Steinway grand piano, bassoon, saxophone, (church) organ, kettledrums, double bass, vibraphone etc. help to objectively assess the sound quality.

Finally, I listen to the double CD “Substance 1987” by the British New Wave band New Order. Play tip: Track #4: “Blue Monday” on CD #1 (translated quote from Wikipedia Germany:) is considered a pioneering piece of electronic dance music and synth pop, as well as a forerunner of techno, due to its innovative sound engineering and early sampling sounds. The original version of the track appeared on the 12″ maxi-single of the same name in 1983. The record is one of the best-selling 12″ singles, with over a million copies. The track itself (including the '88 and '95 remixes) is estimated to have sold over 10 million copies.

As an interim result of this test report, I can attest to the Google Pixel 7 Pro's uncoloured sound reproduction. Favourite tracks from my music collection sound as good as they do on other playback media.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro has a ruler-like frequency response down to the low bass range.

Audio Test Equipment

As a measuring instrument, I only have my good hearing, various particularly suitable music titles (encoding with constant quality; dynamic data rate up to max. 320 kbit/s) and the Bluetooth headphones…

Apple AirPods Pro (2. Generation).
These also harmonise very well with the Google Pixe 7 Pro!

Unlike their predecessors and cheaper models, you can control them with gestures and don't need an app. I was worried whether I would be able to continue using the AirPods Pro if I switched completely from iPhones to Pixels, but at worst I would only have used them on the MacBook Air M2, which I use to stream TV and watch YouTube movies.

Messaging

Threema

Threema can optionally be used without personal data such as telephone number or email address. The Threema ID is sufficient!
Chats are end-to-end encrypted and phone calls are tap-proof.

Session

The Messenger Session does not use any personal data, i.e. neither telephone number nor e-mail address! There is no connection to the address book of the device! The Session ID is generated locally on the device and serves as a public key.
Chats are end-to-end encrypted and phone calls are tap-proof.
Further advantages: decentralised Onion-Routing network, free of charge.

SimpleX

Privacy redefined: Other apps have user IDs.
SimpleX works without these, not even with random numbers.
This increases privacy immensely.
Huge advantage over all other messengers: platform-independent local backup (database + design) makes changing devices very easy!

Telephony

28.04.2023: The acoustics are flawless. So far, only one phone call from the Telefónica mobile network to the fixed network, but more than twenty hours of voice calls via messenger (Threema, Session, SimpleX Chat).

Call Filter

Please do not disturb

This is the name of the professional call filter of Android OS.
Create various schedules with individual conditions.

Allow Calls

This can be configured in the Settings menu “Do not disturb”:

  • From all
  • Only from contacts (all saved in own address book)
  • Only from marked contacts (this means favourites)
  • Do not allow calls

Important Settings of the Phone App

At the top right, you can reach the menu for the Call List and Settings via the three vertical dots.

Settings

It is better to check and define the many useful configuration options here as soon as the phone is put into operation, as it will save a lot of time later and make it easier to use:

Display Options

Sorting of names in the address book, e.g. by last name, but name format: first name first.

Tones and Vibration

Here you set the default ringtone, select vibration settings and whether “Do not disturb” should be active during a phone call.
If, like me, you don't like haptic feedback and find vibrations rather annoying, this is one of the many hidden menus for turning off the annoying energy-consuming vibration.

Short Answers

Four SMS templates for callers who call at an inopportune moment are stored in an editable form.

Call Accounts

Settings for SIM cards used, important for Dual-SIM and SIP.
Companies or parents find the number restriction here, WLAN telephony can be preferably started via WLAN or mobile network, forwardings are defined (always/if busy/if no answer/if not reachable).

The most important thing is hidden under “Additional Settings”:
Caller ID – Show number on outgoing calls with the options:
• Network default setting (usually means “suppressed call number”!)
• suppress phone number
• show phone number

In addition, you can switch on “Call waiting” here if you do not want to miss other callers during a call and perhaps even want to toggle between them (switch back and forth).

Blocked Numbers

Unknown” – Block calls from unidentified callers (switch on or off).
If you switch it on, also callers with suppressed call number receive a busy signal or are forwarded to the mailbox in the case of “Call forwarding on busy”. Smiley sticks out tongue
SMS from blocked numbers are also not delivered. Smiley sticks out tongue
Turn this off if you have a business and need to answer all calls.

Mailbox

Here, mailbox notification and setup can be achieved for each of the two SIM cards.

Operating Aids

Speech or hearing impaired people will find the TTY mode here.
TTY = Abbreviation: Telephone TYpewriter.

Accessibility for the eternally outdated and stubborn, who you love anyway

Despite the threat of punishment by the Federal Network Agency, there are still too many dubious companies that do not comply with the law and call us with suppressed or falsified telephone numbers. That's why I don't even temporarily switch off the blocking of anonymous callers in order to be accessible to stubborn people and can no longer recommend this to others.
In the meantime, word has also got around that you can reach fewer and fewer people with a suppressed number…

For stubborn acquaintances and relatives who do not want to have the free number transfer switched on by the network operator, I would use the mailbox if necessary.
I would formulate the announcement text of the mailbox accordingly:
„… landed on the mailbox because of a suppressed call number, … please always call with activated caller ID!”

As soon as automatic diallers of dubious advertising callers start ringing at short intervals without interruption and suppress their own telephone number or transmit a faked, constantly changing telephone number, “Do not disturb” must remain active, otherwise you are no longer reachable for serious callers!

Alternatives to “Do not disturb”

Since Android OS version 6, you no longer need an app as a call filter, which serious call filter developers state in their app description!

I bought a real call filter (Advanced Call Blocker by wahooka) for my Android smartphone Samsung Galaxy Note on 12 December 2010.
Since 24.03.2011 I have been using a location and time-dependent profile control called Llama on the above-mentioned smartphone. Both are no longer available for current Android versions.

Blocking individual Phone Numbers

In Android OS, unwanted phone numbers can be blocked directly from the call list without having to save them in the address book!

Block dubious Numbers directly from the Call List

  1. Calling up the call list
  2. Tap the centre of the list entry of the interferer (not the handset symbol!)
  3. A menu pops up with the options Send SMS, Block number, Call details
  4. Tap on „Block number
  5. A security query appears: Block (phone number)?
    „You will no longer receive calls from this number.” Cancel | Block contact

In case of an accident (e.g. slipped in line, got the wrong contact) you can tap on “Unblock” immediately afterwards.
If you want to unblock later or check all the blocks already stored, you can do this in the settings menu of the phone app:

Go to Settings/Blocked Numbers.
All blocked numbers are listed here.There is an X to the right of each entry. Click on it and the block will be deleted after confirming the security query.

Firmware

The Google Pixel 7 Pro comes with Android version 13.
I immediately replaced Google's Android OS with GrapheneOS.
New software versions are downloaded automatically and installed after confirmation. I document this in each case with the installation date as the heading. This is usually one day after the official release date, which is part of the build number.

14.03.2023

GrapheneOS version 2023030400 released
After initial operation and basic configuration, the device reports the availability of a software update (471 MB). After installing it, I see that it is the security update for February 2023. Just four minutes later, I am offered the next update (49.58 MB). It contents GrapheneOS software:
GmsCompatConfig: update to version 35
GmsCompatConfig: update to version 36
Vanadium: update to version 110.0.5481.154.1
Vanadium: update to version 111.0.5563.49.0

Software

If an essential app requires Google services, you don't have to do without GrapheneOS!
Thanks to GrapheneOS, Google services don't get any special rights and run in isolation, regardless of whether they are installed in the main user profile or one of max. 31 separate user profiles…!

Tip

If your Google services-dependent apps do not need to run constantly, it is definitely worth creating a separate user, because then “sandboxed Google Play” does not have to run permanently in background, consuming energy…
So, for example, check your account balance briefly, make transfers if necessary and then log out again straight away!
Logging off makes the profile inactive so that none of the applications installed in it can be run. It also deletes the disk encryption keys from memory and hardware registers, returning the user profile to sleep mode.

I have always preferred open source software and therefore only had to check for banking apps, Post & DHL and my health insurance app whether they also work without Google services.
I had installed these and Google Camera & Google Photos in the specially created user profile. The Photos app was only allowed to access the camera folder.

In the meantime, all of the apps mentioned above run without Google Play services. Then there were android-wide problems with fingerprint recognition in additional user profiles (not a GrapheneOS problem).
Since then, I have not used additional user profiles at all.

14.03.2023: My Threema ID is moving from iPhone 14 Pro Max to Google Pixel 7 Pro. For this, I can reuse the licence that I bought in the Threema shop back then and last used for my Fairphone 4.

To prevent new incoming messages from landing on the iPhone 14 Pro Max, I switch it to flight mode!
First I export all chats from the Threema app on the iPhone 14 Pro Max as encrypted files and email them to myself via Tuta, because I have extra storage space there and everything is end-to-end encrypted.

After Threema Libre is installed on the Pixel 7 Pro and the Threema ID is imported, I delete Threema ID including chats on the iPhone 14 Pro Max and then the app itself (may only be installed on one device).

Unfortunately, the chats cannot be moved when changing eco systems, but if I want to read an old chat, I can decrypt the archive file and read it on my MacBook. Thanks to Threema Safe, the Threema ID (incl. public and private key), nickname, profile picture, contacts (incl. trust level) and group memberships are retained.

Switch from iOS to Android OS/GrapheneOS

Back in September 2021, before buying a Fairphone 3+ (with /e/OS), I had searched for and found Google-free apps.

You can find interesting and tested apps under Mobile Apps.
For apps without test report, I link to the developer's website or to f-droid.org for further information.

Display

Photo: Google Pixel 7 Pro, Start screen with Google logo (Android 14 boots…)

Photo: Google Pixel 7 Pro, start screen shows the Google logo first (followed by the GrapheneOS logo …)

The touch display is great! Slightly curved backwards on the left and right, but this doesn't lead to as many incorrect inputs as with the edge displays of the first Samsung Galaxy Edge devices. Google rightly calls it a full-screen display, as there is only a small camera hole for selfie-takers and make-up mirror forgetters and no significant edge to the casing.

The factory setting is Full HD+ with 1080p and requires less energy.
To enjoy the full resolution of the 6.7-inch full-screen display, go the menu path to Settings/Display/Screen Resolution.
Then switch from 1080p FHD+ to 1440p QHD+. Enjoy it!

Tip

To save energy and protect the display from unauthorised viewing, a short display switch-off time of 15 seconds is recommended.

Camera

At winter temperatures, my phone stays in the pocket to protect it. The change in temperature from the cold outside to the warm inside can lead to condensation in the device.

The quality of the camera is comparable to that of competing models and only differs by nuances. Depending on the situation, sometimes the Pixel 7 Pro and sometimes another top model is slightly better. No current smartphone camera masters all motifs perfectly.

Tip

For the best possible image quality and access to all functions, the Pixel camera requires Google's camera app. And it needs Google's Photos app for the image preview. Retouching (eraser) is easy with it.
Since the firmware update in April 2023, the camera and Photos app are working without Google Play Services/Google Services Framework!

Older versions of the Google Camera app still worked without the Google Photos app. Tapping the image preview forced the camera app to close, but this could be worked around by using a suitable gallery app. With current versions, however, you always get an error message if you try to use the Google Camera app without the Google Photos app.

14.11.2023: Uninstalled Google's camera and photos app. The pre-installed privacy-protecting camera app from GrapheneOS is sufficient for my purposes. Sometimes I use the camera of my good old iPhone 11 Pro.

Good compact or system cameras are suitable for higher demands on photo quality. These produce the best results without any software tricks. I have a Panasonic DMC-GF2 for this purpose.

Photos

So far, there have been few opportunities for good motifs.
I photographed the MacBook Air M2 for my hardware test report.

Leather Sleeve

For years, I have protected each mobile phone with a custom-made black nappa leather sleeve by fitBAG (Made in Germany).

Surprisingly, the Pixel 7 Pro fits perfectly in the fitBAG case of the iPhone 14 Pro Max! I didn't expect this after comparing the dimensions from the data sheets. I had it made a little larger so that the iPhone can be easily removed. Even with a very thin case, both devices could still fit into this fitBAG case.

Because I have already sold the iPhone 14 Pro Max to wirkaufens.de, I am saving myself the trouble of ordering a new fitBAG case this time.

Pros

  • housing with excellent build quality
  • excellent borderless high-resolution 6.7" full-screen display
  • 12 GB RAM (lots of space for simultaneous app use)
  • Dual SIM support (1× Nano-SIM, 1× eSIM)
  • noise-free very good sound quality when telephoning
    (supports HD Voice and HD Voice Plus = EVS)
  • current Bluetooth version 5.2 (very energy-saving!)
  • NFC support
  • alternative operating systems like GrapheneOS easy to install
  • SW updates + security patches for at least 5 years, possibly longer

Cons

  • Battery cannot be changed by the customer without tools
  • in Germany only 128 GB or 256 GB storage, no 512 GB version

Conclusion

The Google Pixel 7 Pro is an excellent upper-class smartphone with good features. The display and build quality are outstanding and the processor performance is very good. Apart from Dual eSIM, everything works.
There seem to be some users who can use Dual eSIM.

Annoying: thanks to lousy journalists, I wasted unnecessary time trying to use Dual eSIM on an Android version that doesn't even support it yet.
Good news: Google is catching up with eSIM technology and is working on making all smartphones Dual eSIM-capable from Android 14 onwards.
