I use Replicant - the compiled-from-only-Free-source flavor of Android - 
and I use only apps from F-droid, favoring those recommended by 
https://guardianproject.info/apps (which includes K-9)..

Still I do not yet use PGP on my phone.  That's not because the phone is 
a "closed platform" (it isn't) but because a phone is far easier to 
loose and far more difficult to firmly lock down (there's no "full disk 
encryption" as on Debian) and I have not yet wrapped my head around 
subkey handling in GnuPG.
