Hi Mi Fans,
I am back with another thread for the Custom ROM Class weekly series. I will be reviewing crDroid ROM running Android Pie 9.0 for our beloved Redmi Note 4.
crDroid is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device also attempting to bringing many of the best features existent today.

To know the process for Unlocking the Bootloader, installing Custom Recovery and flash the ROM, you can read the threads given below:
crDroid is close to Stock Android with a lot of customization options.
The ROM and GApps take 7.4GB of the system storage.
We can quickly unlock our phone in a few situations when a phone is near to our body, it will help us to unlock it without entering the password/fingerprint etc. It also depends on the GApps you flashed. I prefer the nano GApps which is a light package and comprises of important Google apps. The features available with this GApps are as follows:
The Battery backup is quite decent in this ROM. I got a good Screen On Time as compared to other ROMs in heavy usage.
crDroid also offers native Android Pie feature Digital Wellbeing that will help us to understand our phone usage better, app usage timers so that we can limit the usage, visuals detailing how many times we unlock our phone per day and how many notifications we receive. The new Wind Down feature limits notifications and also gradually turns the display greyscale, to make it easier on the eyes and to encourage we to unplug, there is also a Do Not Disturb mode for preventing interruptions.
I have used this ROM for more than a month now. This ROM is very stable and good for daily usage. Those who play PUBG Mobile will face minor fame drops, which I think everyone is facing after the latest 0.10 update. However, this ROM is worth giving a try for those who want the latest Android version with good battery backup and almost stable (I didn't find any bug as of now).
