I have tried many ROMs for Nexus 5x and when people ask me for the best ROM for this device I used to tell them none is perfect. But today we present you the Euclidean OS based on Android N. This ROM is the perfect blend of customization and performance while giving users a true to life sound experience and a fully operational latest Android N OS with stock feel. The ROM lets you enjoy Google Pixel and Android Nougat Features on Nexus 5.
The ROM supports two great features. Out of which one is Qualcomm LLVM Compiler 3.8 certificated by Qualcomm itself which makes the support of quick charging possible for the device. Another one is bionic optimizations which improve the performance capabilities of the device.
First of all the ROM comes with pre-installed GApps(stock ones removed), which in addition helps the users to avoid the trouble of flashing it with TWRP. Besides Gapps, it has some useful apps such as BusyBox, Snapdragon Camera installed.
However, when it comes to customization, this ROM serves at its best. The ROM houses both dark and light material themes, battery LED notifications customization, advanced power menu options, custom battery styles, button wake, ambient display and Automatic brightness on the Quick Settings menu.
Furthermore, when it comes to sound, it has pre-installed Phonograph Music Player. Having DSP manager installed makes the sound even richer because of its bass boost and 2x equalizer features. Along with the above, it also has music control (long press volume keys to switch track when screen off), match volume controls rotation, Google Nexus Sounds (stock ones) and finally the biQuads – Qualcomm’s audio codec, an ultimate collection of black box sound library.
Lately, Google released its Pixel Smartphones having some cool breathtaking features. It would have been a shame if this ROM didn’t include those. Users will be glad to hear that this OS comes with all Pixel features. Yes, all of them. Eager to know what the features are, check the list at the end of the post.
This OS comes with Android Security Patch Level updated till September 6th, 2016. Therefore developers won’t have any issues regarding installation of Xposed Framework. Moreover, this OS has full OMS support which means if you come across any bug it will be resolved soon.
