The device from a relatively newer player in the market had created quite an unprecedented hype when it was first launched. While that hype has slowly settled down, however, we cannot deny the fact that this device is quite an active player in custom development. In my experience with this ROM, the battery life was just the same as the stock ROM, but I was able to customize a few things here and there. To put it into better words, think of LineageOS, but with added features and tweaks. Not to mention, the huge list of device support– both new and old.
