OS

Linux
KDE Neon
Recommended if you want similarity, with more security & configurabilty than Windows
Tails (portable secure OS)
Whonix (secure VM OS)
Qubes OS (secure OS)

Windows: Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019 X64 en-US MAY 2021 {Gen2}
Most intrusive OS. Install Open Shell Menu first, then private Security apps below (WPD app and Blackbird)


Phones

Android is very insecure, even de-googled phones, even F-Droid apps.
For proof check "permissions" for each app in F-Droid.
A middle ground is Ubuntu Touch and other less popular OS's.
In comparison in IOS; you can restrict/disable EVERY APP ACCESS at the OS level (compared to Android).

The best secure phone is a dumb phone (for calls only) and a separate secure Wi-Fi device,
one that you can control/configure completely, maybe a Linux device. More coming soon...

Some Recommendations:
IOS/IPhones: With all restrictions enabled
4.7" screens (6s, 7, 8) OR 5.5" screens (6s+, 7Plus, 8Plus)
other newer models are not a good value (proof is in the detailed comparisons), unless you need a larger IPhone .

UBuntu Touch: UBPorts (with a Nexus 5, others have MORE bugs)
SailFish OS

Android: Least secure phone OS (even if de-googled, even if using F-Droid)
Graphene OS (most secure Android, some issues)
Avoid MicroG (if you want less tracking/Google)
CalyxOS (easiest install)
E Foundation
F-Droid
DivestOS
(more secure than Lineage OS)
Lineage OS (least secure, most phones)

IF YOU MUST use an app like WhatsApp (or any other Android app) then
- Avoid Android,
- A little more secure would be IPhone
- More secure would be BlueStacks on PC.
Use a disposable email/phone number, GMail/Google Voice, that you will use ONLY for BlueStacks.
