As compared to other operating system for mobile devices, Android is a symbol of freedom. No other OS gives to so much alternatives for system optimizations and customization. However, this freedom costs rooting your device, installing a custom recovery on it and thus voiding your device’s warranty. If you are ready to pay this price, you buy unlimited possibilities for your Android phone or tablet.
Battery drain is the most concerning problems for any owner of a mobile phone or tablet with a big screen. Besides, we are also keen to remove bloatware apps and improve the performance of the device we have! While you can remove some useless system apps just by deleting them using a root explorer app, it is not an easy job for basic users to tweak the system to get the best possible performance. Thanks to the toil and genius of our developers who take all responsibility upon themselves to make our mobile experience better!
If you use a Samsung Galaxy device, whether it be a phone or tablet, you have noticed ho terribly the stock TouchWiz UX fares! The slow performance and lag delays might just make you hate Samsung. At DroidViews, we always strive to discover new tips, apps, mods and custom ROM that are capable of enhancing the performance your device and so we are here with another custom ROM for the Galaxy Note 10.1.
Some weeks ago, I did a flying review of the Omega ROM for the Galaxy Note 10.1 and today we’ll take a look at Android Revolution HD which has been developed by Mike1986. I have been using this amazing ROM for more than a year on a number of my devices and it has never failed to impress with its brilliance.
The Android Revolution HD ROM is based on the latest release of the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware. It has all the features that you are used to enjoy on your Note 10.1. The developer has avoided any graphical changes and so it looks the same as stock user interface. However, the difference can be clearly felt in the way your Note 10.1 behaves. The professional touches, system optimizations, tweaks and bloat removal together promise a faster, speedy and stable performance. As for the battery life, it is far better that what you get with stock ROM on your Note 10.1.
