Short review Lineage OS 14.1 (OS 7.1.1)
This is a pretty stable release. While testing we didn’t experienced any restarts, random turn offs or hard lags. Fingerprint scanner is working well. Also this ROM is pretty clean. Battery life is a big plus and you’ve got a lot of energy saving and performance settings to adjust. Both sim cards are working fine, 4G, 3G and 2G networks working fine.
MTK transfer to PC is working fine, including USB 3.0. Wi-Fi hotspot is also working fine.
And here’s a few disappointments: no additional themes included (probably will be added in future versions). In “Accounts” menu only Google & Email account are shown.
In conclusion this is a very stable ROM that can be used as your everyday firmware and if compared to MIUI there are many pros.
