Hey, Mi Fans,
Welcome back to Custom ROM Class! Everyone around you was using Android 10 but some of you might be stuck with the Android Pie and that's how Custom ROM helps you to experience the latest version of Android in a different way. So, here I am with Derpfest OS ROM based on Android 10 for a successful mid-range device Mi A1. Let’s review it!

Android 10

User Interface
This ROM comes with a Lawnchair launcher as a default. Several customizable features are possible with this launcher. Customizing the launcher can give you a fresh look at the home screen. The uniqueness of this launcher is it's identical to the original pixel device launcher.  It's preloaded with Android 10 wallpapers.

Device Certified
In some of the custom ROM, the device might be uncertified in the Play Store. So the google play secure wouldn't have been working which increases the threat. With this ROM the device is certified

With the Snapdragon 625, you can play medium graphics games without any struggle but there would be some frame drops in Highly graphics-intensive games. I tried to play Gangstar Vegas: World of Crime, the gameplay was smooth with low graphics but yet it's playable.  

It's able to customize the notification alert by long-pressing the notification shade. This is beneficial to control notifications for each app.

Updating the software is more manageable now. If there are any updates, New update will be notified or it can be check manually from the settings.  For automatic installation, you need to install a magisk module.  

GeekBench Benchmark
With the GeekBench 5 benchmark, it scored about 174 in a single score and 1054 in the Multicore score.

My Opinion
I was using this smartphone as my secondary device only for listening to music and some casual gaming. I hope you can understand my usage pattern now, the place where this ROM stands out is the battery standby time. I haven't faced any major bugs. When I tried to uninstall an app either from launcher or settings the package installer got a forced stop message. The workaround for this bug is to uninstall the app via the Play Store. This ROM is a must-try for this device.

ROM Information
  • Android OS Version: Android 10
  • Based On: AOSIP
  • Security Patch Level: 5 April 2020
  • Non-Treble version
