Hello MI Fans,
We are back with new custom rom series for the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Hope you will enjoy this series. Today we will be reviewing one of the most favourite custom roms, The Pixel Experience Rom which gives the best stock android experience. So let's explore the new Pixel Experience Rom Features and Installation procedures.

Disclaimer: We are not responsible for any bricked devices. Do this at your own risk and don't forget to have a complete backup of your data.

  • Unlocked Bootloader.
  • Flash Dummy file to avoid ARB issues.
  • TWRP Custom Rom Recovery.
  • Pixel Experience Rom.

Note: No need to flash Gapps, it's already included.

To know the process for Unlocking the Bootloader, installing Custom Recovery and flash ROM, you can refer the threads given below:

ROM Review:

  • Home Screen:

        The Home Screen is exactly the same as that of the Pixel, it is one of the clean UI with the best stock android experience. The home screen has a google search bar and navigation gestures of android pie which opens up the apps tray.

  • Home Screen Settings:

The home screen settings provides customisations like notification dots, icon styles, home screen rotations etc. The home screen settings can be opened by touching and holding the home screen for 2sec.

  • Notification Bar:

        The notification bar truly resembles the stock android, It's quite smooth and the icons can be customised according to our preference. We can also navigate to the settings menu directly from there.

  • Apps Tray:

        Swiping up from the home screen opens the apps tray which by default has a white background, there is no blot wares in this rom, and we don't need to install any gapps separately. The UI is smooth and works flawlessly.

  • Settings Menu:

        The settings menu is also same as stock android and have almost all the settings needed for the phone. The fingerprint settings everything works fine. It also contains settings like digital wellbeing.

  • Android Version:

        The current version detail which we have tested is shown below. Thanks to be rom developers Pixel Experience rom is getting regular updates and now on both CAF and AOSP editions. Both are now on the latest security patches available. And it uses the Derp Kernel by default which provides great performance and better battery life.

  • Storage:

        The storage settings can be found in the settings panel, the system usage is about 7GB  and we were left with around 54GB on our 64GB variant.

  • Digital Wellbeing:

        It's one of the AI based  android pie features which shows the complete phone usage statistics you can refer to it check your daily and weekly usages. It shows the no. of unlocks, screen usages, app usages etc. It also have the Wind Down feature that encourage you to disconnect at night.

  • Google Tray:

        Like App Vault in MIUI, swiping to the right on the home screen opens the google tray that loads the trending and latest news according to our previous searches history and subscriptions.

  • Gestures:

        The gestures is same as that of the Pixel, You will not get MiUI gestures by default but you can install it by using third party apps like Fluid NG which i have used.

ROM Information:

  • Android OS Version: Android Pie 9
  • Based on: AOSP
  • Security Patch Level: May 5,2019

Note: There is a new version available now above mentioned was the version which I have used to test.

  • Camera:

        The default camera is an extracted camera app from Mi A2 which is AI enabled. You can also download and install Gcam ports which is available for Note 5 Pro.

  • Performance And Battery Life:

        The Snapdragon 636 is much capable of delivering the best performance and battery life. We didn't find any issues during our testing. But while playing games like PUBG some minor frames drops occured. The battery backup is great and getting almost same SOT as on MiUI.

MiUI  VS  Pixel Experience:

If you want to get the best stock android like experience then Pixel Experience is the best one for you, but when compared with MiUI Rom customisations are much less. The MiUI Rom is the best feature pack. A lot of features are missing in Pixel Experience like Quick Ball, App vault, One-handed mode,Second space,Dual app,App Lock, Full screen gestures etc. The battery life was better on Pixel Experience in my usage even with gaming. Talking about camera i could say that the MiUI camera app is better and Gcam works fine too.
