Benefits Of Custom ROMs

Custom ROMs advantages

1) Vanilla Android (Pixel Style)

Most Of the AOSPExtended Based Custom ROMs are bloatware free and have very close to the stock look and feel which makes them super snappy. These ROMs are very optimized for battery and performance.

2) Root Access

Most of the Custom ROMs are pre-rooted. The process of gaining full admin control of the Android device is called Rooting On Android. It’s similar to running programs as administrators in Windows.

After rooting your device you can install different MODs, kernel, ROMs on your device.
