Do you have a playstore-free android phone?
I bought a Moto phone exactly a year ago, which is stuck at Android 7.1.2 and has Security path es from June 2018. No security holes have been closed since then. Unfortunately a custom ROM Is also not available.
My ad blocker (Blokada from fdroid) blocks 10000 tracking requests per week and some apps segfault when using this blocker (including DB Navigator).
Compared with this situation an iOS device is "the users paradise".
