  1. I have used all these ROMs, but I think all these ROMs are waste with 4-4.5 hr SOT. I suggest everyone to use
    Oxygen 4.5.1, it is the best rom
    More SOT ,smooth performance ,best battery backup ,fastest charging, good features without any bugs

  2. Which is the best ROM for fast performance & longest battery life.. I do not play games on mobile, I just use it for calls, sms, emails, web browsing, MS Office, OneNote, Reminders & official webex &, skype for business conference calls.
    With my Lenovo Zuk Z2 Plus I am facing major problem of fast draining battery (only lasts half day-12 hours) & performance issues like lags, unresponsiveness & extreme slowness. Even a 3 GB Ram old phone is much faster & better performance (good responsiveness no lags in conf calls) than the Lenovo Zuk Z2 Plus with 4GB RAM. currently I am using Factory installed android 7.0 with ZUI ver 2.5.104 ST. This is the first time I would try custom ROM so I dont know how to do it.
    Please suggest the simplest, lightest custom rom which has lowest battery consumption & fastest speed / performance. Best touch responsiveness no lags…
    I do not need VOLTE support & am ok to lose it or any other unused feature in tradeoff for saving battery power & improving performance. I do not care about jazzy new features or get latest Android OS for my mobile. I am ok using old OS if it is fast performance & saves battery power to last a full day.

    1. Go with AOSPExtended V6.2, It is an Android Pie ROM with Volte working. If you want a good battery life then use Dark wallpaper and Pie will change the accent to dark, it saves battery. Do not use apps like Facebook and Messenger and if you want to use them then Hibernate them with Greenify.
