    Key highlights of Pixel Experience ROM

    Almost every feature is working and the ROM is very stable. I was able to use all my banking apps without any issue. The ROM has great battery life, awesome RAM management and the overall user experience is very fluid and is much better than the MIUI 9.5.

    However, as this is a third party ROM there are minor bugs and glitches as well. As of now, WiFi and Miracast display features are not working and the same is expected to get a fix with a software update.

    Should you install this ROM?

    We do not recommend installing this app on your primary smartphone, as it is not completely stable. However, if you have a backup smartphone then you can install this ROM, as, installing the custom ROM or flashing the third party ROM will not void your warranty and you can always switch back to MIUI by flashing the MIUI ROM.

     

    Conclusion

    The Android 9 Pie based Pixel Experience ROM is pretty stable and most of the features are working. If you want to experience the newest features of the Android OS then install this ROM. Please follow the procedure mentioned in the source carefully. Otherwise, you might brick your smartphone.
