Android AOSP is an open source system with some significant security features such as SELinux, sandboxing and full-disk LUKS encryption. LineageOS gives better user control on the device and removes some remaining snitchy anti-features.

Smart phones in general are pocket snitches. Hardware backdoors and locks is where it's at, because that's an aspect programmers can hardly tackle. Many smart phones just can't have the bootloader unlocked regardless of the motherboards compatibility with other Android versions, you gotta change the damn memory chip for this.

iPhones/iOS are the biggest snitches, and they hardly can be modified by programmers. There's a several years old love story between the Chinese State and Apple.
