    1. I would say that Lineage OS 14.1 would be the best. I have been using it for about 6 months, and I haven’t had any bugs. Updates are fast too. And the entire ROM is very close to stock android!

        1. You can try Magisk Hide if the device is rooted. That’s the only way you can use several apps. PayTM works on rooted devices.
