Lineage ROMs aka CyanogenMod

Lineage ROM formerly known as CyanogenMod is one of the most popular custom ROM for Android because of its support for a large number of devices and features with the enhancements not included in the stock versions of Android. You will get support for themes, lock screen gestures, DSP Equalizer, FLAC player support, web browser with security and true incognito mode, etc. CyanogenMod allows endless changes to the system as well as offering custom themes for the operating system interface. The native Lineage ROMs app makes it easy to find and get the most recent version of the ROM for your device.


MIUI 12 Android ROM

MIUI is a ROM based on AOSP and is known to completely change the look of Android, from a personalized home screen, MIUI applications as the media player, a customizable notification bar, the file browser, to its own launcher and the firmware application – gallery, camera app with fullscreen mode, and other interesting applications. We particularly like the Super wallpapers that offer a terrific viewing across different screens.

MIUI is still one of the best ROMs available, with a beautiful interface and great possibilities for customization. Also, better privacy is another main aspect of this popular ROM. MIUI started in China as part of the Xiaomi phone but now has expanded to a lot of brands and models of phones like Samsung Galaxy S phones.

The tweak assist lets the user adjust the performance and other settings to tune the battery consumption level.

Revenge OS

Revenge OS has gain popularity in a short time because it is based on the Android Open Source Project and always keeps up with the latest build. The ROM is extremely lightweight and bloat-free by keeping only the core part of the OS for a buttery smooth run. However, the developer still manages to offer enough customization options. You can enjoy new looks with unlimited color gradients and even apply the custom clock faces and widgets we saw on the latest android beta version. The revenge launcher app is super simple yet comes with support for icons packs, custom widgets, and supports Google Feed.

Havoc OS for android

Do not get fooled with the initial look of Havoc-OS. Once start you start using the OS for some time, you will be amazed to see how awesome it is with tons of little things that make the android experience better. We like the mods included for the Status bar, buttons, lights, gestures, etc. You can also tweak plenty of configurations based on your personal preference. It borrowed plenty from the Resurrection Remix OS and Paranoid ROM. But unlike them, it’s continuously getting updated to the latest version of Android OS. Overall, Havoc OS is a good choice in the long as the developer team is quite active to bring new features.

Pixel Experience

Pixel Experience ROM

Pixel Experience is another stock-based ROM that brings Pixel-like features such as Google Assistant, built-in GCam support, Pixel live wallpapers, and more to other popular phones including Xiaomi, Realme, and Samsung phones. It has a great list of features and the ability to create shortcuts on the home screen, shortcuts to specific applications, gesture controls. You can also customize notifications and has a feature to invert the colors of the interface. The only drawback is the long wait for the latest version of OS as the team wants to ensure a stable build for all users.


crDroid custom ROM

Since AOKP (Android Open Kang Project) has become an abandoned project, crDroid takes the spot as the AOSP based ROM. At first glance, it looks like the standard version of Android, but in the settings option, you can see that offers much more in terms of customization options. It supports most high-end devices with various modifications to the source code of android hidden in factory terminals. Users can customize buttons for shortcuts or create their own, add different vibration patterns and swipes gestures to improve the user experience.
