CyanogenMod is a hugely more private and secure OS choice for phones. It's community driven, has many features Android lacks (because Google doesn't put in). In fact, it has developed features later adopted by Google's Android. CyanogenMod also updates without waiting for your carrier to offer you the update. The downside is that CyanogenMod might not work on the very newest handsets, so check out the list of handsets it works well with first.
