Thanks. What is an alternative then?
I use Firefox for Android. I'm pretty happy with that. No software is ever perfect, but it basically does what I want roughly the way I want it to on a phone. It has an add-on library and you can install things like UBlock Origin, personas, etc.. The add-on library isn't as extensive as what they have for PCs, but it's got what I consider the important stuff.

Edge for Android is also available. I used it briefly for a website that was incompatible with Firefox for Android and then uninstalled it when either Mozilla or the website admin corrected the issue. It seemed alright- a limited version of Ad-Block Plus was built in and could be enabled in settings, and there was a dark mode available, but there was no actually add-on library, if I recall correctly.

Ad-Block Plus actually has an official Android browser, a fork of Firefox, but I was a bit annoyed that they seem to have intentionally left features out of their Firefox for Android add-on to make them exclusive to their browser. That actually made me not only uninstall the ABP browser for Android, but also switch my Firefox add-on to UBlock Origin. ABP certainly has the right to do what they want to do, but I have the right to do what I want to do, which in this case to avoid ABP because of the way they were attempting to leverage their ad-blocking marketshare to force people to their own browser (To be clear, I have no issues with them having their own browser, I just don't like that they took features away (or never included them in the first place) on their Firefox for Android add-on to help their browser).

I know Waterfox is also available for Android, but haven't tried it. The bad reviews on Google Play put me off. Maybe I'll try it at some point when I perceive the product to have improved.

Vivaldi was working on an Android version last I heard, but I don't think it's out yet.

I use Brave. My only complaint is they don't have a "dark" (low-light) mode.

DuckDuckGo have released an android browser. I have used it for a few months now and it seems to have pretty good compatibility with most internet sites. Its probably built on a customized Chromium base. Not for sure on that but it does work pretty well. It's also built in accordance with DuckDuckGo's philosophy. No tracking. You can get it in the Google android store or on DuckDuckGo's site.

Does it have an add-on infrastructure? Is there a Ublock Origin port? Dark theme (Either built-in or available as an extension)?

Try Kiwi Browser, chromium-based, open-source, built-in ad-blocker, but.... supports extensions and they work perfectly. Have uBlock Origin and uMatrix running, plus lots others. Fast. Fennec/Firefox is molasses compared. Until Googl;e screws chromium up with manifest v3 for adblockers, it's great. And then, I will keep old versions forever.
