After using MIUI12, which is quite sluggish. There are many custom ROMs with many features inbuilt. Was looking around for a snappier ROM. Finally found a god send ROM RevengeOS. RevengeOS is an AOSP based custom ROM with a focus on performance and stability. There are not many features in this ROM but features are not the aim of RevengeOS, it focuses more on a snappy performance and by product of it is a good battery life on this ROM along with good performance. Earlier I was getting approx 4 to 5 hrs screen time on my phone which has now increased to 7 to 8 hrs. And I am happy :). It has breath a new life in my mobile and I don’t feel need to buy a new phone. Also all the banking apps are working on this ROM.
