CrDroid has a wealth of customisations, including a very effective Face Unlock. It's also (for me) totally stable.
LOS is also stable. Technically they are both excellent ROMs, and I guess it's just a case of personal preference.
Colt OS, which I loved in its Android 9 version but haven't tried in Android 10, is undoubtedly also worth a look.

So you have experience with crdroid and lineage? What did you prefer?

I've used all three ROMs I've mentioned. I loved Colt 9, but installed CrDroid before Colt 10 came out and I'm more than happy with it. It's the one I use and recommend only because it has more customisations (I think) than LOS. I have LOS 17.1 on my Nexus 5 and it's great. But I suspect, based on my usage of Colt 9, that Colt customisations will also be great. I just like CrDroid 's Face Unlock so I'm sticking with it.

Two comments:

1. LineageOS is the main place for the device specific code. Other roms mostly copy that from the LOS repositories. The result is that the different roms tend to build on the same foundation (and a very good foundation that is).

2. VoLTE and wifi-calling don't work on any Android 9 or 10 roms. (Though we hope that @wavedashdoc will help us with that at some point in the future). If you need that, stay on an old version. In particular, you need VoLTE for voice calls if your carrier has shut down their 3G net.

Is Verizon (or total wireless / straight talk mvno under them) one that has shut down 3g Network?
