Fine, but support for legacy devices is lacking. This is a pretty solid Android custom ROM with all the bells and whistles you come to expect, except without any Google services. One complaint I have is that once the device you install the OS on becomes unsupported, it becomes practically unusable. It's also quite hard to use this as an actual day-to-day phone, seeing as most apps rely on the bare minimum Google services being installed, and getting those to work on this phone is a pain. It also doesn't do anything special to stand out from other Android custom ROMs, and that's kind of disappointing.

two years ago I bought a fairphone 3+ with the stock android 9 installed. Then I knew /e/os and installed it with help of my linux pc. I have never turned back to stock android. They make regular updates, and offer automatical stepups. With the last update some days ago I arrived to 1.9 which is given as Android12. Great work. In two years from Android 9 to 12.
I don't have any app not working on it. I like that you can choose an account for sync calendars ... or not. I started with them, but then i preferred to do it on my own next-cloud server.
If you want a google-free and secure smartphone, this is a very good choice.

Excellent OS for phones to those looking for a bit more privacy.
I have been following them and they have been steadily improving. I've been using E/OS on many phones and never had big issues. The only one worth mentioning is some bluetooth connection problems to some devices (using CanZE).
Being an usual visitor of distrowatch I was surprised to see there are very few announcements for newer releases. Murena updates the system almost monthly. At least the 1.9 release was mentioned.
There is of course place for improvements but the work they are doing with the resources Murena has is excellent so any small issues are easy to forgive.

I hope distrowatch will review the 1.9 version.

Give Murena / E/OS a try..
I look forward for their future improvements...
