Hello Mi Fans,
Welcome back to Custom ROM Class. I am back with a new Custom ROM "Pixys OS" based on Android Pie for Redmi Note 4.
Developers of Pixys says:
Pixys is a butter smooth Android aftermarket firmware. We handpicked the best features around and are adding our own juice into it.
Get ready to taste the unique features it brings with itself.
We aim to deliver an experience with original ideas and features along with the useful things the community is accustomed to.

Note
Have a complete backup before flashing
I'm not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards
Try this at your own risk

Prerequisites
  • Unlocked Bootloader
  • TWRP Custom Recovery Installed: Download
  • Pixys OS ROM based on Android Pie: Download
  • GApps: Download
  • Backup all your personal data

Note: Flash the ROM and GApps simultaneously so that you will not face any problem


To know the process for Unlocking the Bootloader, installing Custom Recovery and flash the ROM, you can read the threads given below:
Review
User Interface:
There is no major difference between Stock ROM UI and Pixys OS ROM UI.
  • The lock screen and the home screen is also the same as the Stock ROM, you will not see any major changes.


  • The notification panel shade has become translucent giving a slight peak of what’s behind it. But it appears a little distracting. In the notification panel, you will find a Gaming Mode option which is similar to Game Booster. On the left side of the Home screen, you will see the news by Google.


  • The Recent Tab is now redesigned. Prior versions of Android featured a vertically oriented screen, meaning you had to swipe down to select a previous app and you couldn’t really see what was going on in most of the screens. With the new system, app screens are arranged horizontally, so you swipe left and right now to navigate through them. And there’s no overlapping, so you can see the whole screen. There are other changes too: Below the recent app screens, you’ll find a search bar and a set of suggested apps, so the multitasking screen is more useful than ever, even without the biggest change in Android P.


  • When you press the power button for a long time you will see more options like Power off and Restart the device, and you can add more options from the Setting. The volume button is also redesigned, it is shifted to the right side (near the top).


  • Quick access from an application shortcut is pretty sweat. Instead of having to go into the app and tapping through to get to the desired function, you can get there much quicker by simply long pressing the shortcut from the home screen, then selecting the option you want. Only certain options and functions are available with this method, so you'll have to experiment a bit to get an idea. The app tray is the same as Stock ROM.


  • Home Screen Settings are a little bit different. You will find the following options:

  • Home screen: Set Google now panel and more.
  • Icons: Set icon shape, size and more.
  • App drawer: Customize your app drawer.
  • Gesture: Enhance your experience.


  • The Settings screen has also redesigned. Also, the search option at the top of the screen, unlike the button present earlier, has now blown into a full-fledged search bar. It would have looked more streamlined if the search bar had rounded corners just like it’s there on the home screen. The icons are also colourfull.


System Storage
This ROM will take about 9.6 GB of space including GApps.

Smart Lock:
You can keep your phone unlocked in some situations, like when your phone is in your pocket or you're near home. When you use Smart Lock, you won't need to unlock with your PIN, pattern, or password. The features you can use depend on your device.
  • On-body detection: You can keep your device unlocked when you're carrying it in your hand, pocket, or bag.
  • Trusted place: You can add a place where the device should be unlocked.
  • Trusted devices: You can keep your phone unlocked whenever it's connected to a trusted device, like a Bluetooth watch or car speaker system.
  • Voice Match: When you say "Ok Google" from a secure lock screen and we're able to recognize your voice, you can ask Google to do things for you, or visit sites, without manually unlocking your device.


Battery Performance:
The Battery menu includes an icon reflecting current battery life, and screen-on-time is on the main menu as well.
After heavy usage, the battery was drained from 100% to 15% in 14 hours.

Adaptive Brightness and Battery Manager
  • Adaptive Brightness: This feature optimizes brightness level for available light. Your screen brightness will automatically adjust to your environment and activities. You can move the slider manually to help adaptive brightness learn your preferences.
  • Battery Manager: Also known as Adaptive Battery. It limits battery for apps that you don't use often. When Battery Manager detects that apps are draining the battery, you'll have the option to restrict these apps. Restricted apps may not work properly and notifications may be delayed.


Digital Welbing
It is designed to help you manage how much time you’re spending on your phone, the multi-pronged effort offers a robust set of tools for tracking and managing your app usage. There are four components: Dashboard (a screen that breaks down how much time you’ve spent on your device), App Timer (which lets you set time limits for individual apps), Do Not Disturb, and Wind Down (which turns on Night Light and Do Not Disturb and fades the screen to grayscale when it’s time to sleep).

ROM Information
Android OS Version: Android 9 Pie
Based on: AOSP
Security Patch level: 5 January 2019 (New update is available)

Conclusion
I used this ROM for more than a month and it is awesome. I have seen minor bugs which can be neglected. The best feature is gaming mode, by enabling gaming mode you can play PUBG at high FPS without any lag.
