Custom ROM For Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus

What is a custom ROM?

Custom ROM is the modified operating system for an Android smartphone, which helps you swap out the launcher, replace icons, customize the user interface, and create gestures. A custom ROM gives you access to everything a Stock ROM (pre-installed operating system) doesn’t provide. You can change the clock position on the status bar from left to right or in the center. You can remove the system apps and choose the apps according to your choice.

One of the best features is that it does not have bloatware installed, and this results in saving the battery backup every day and leading to good battery health for an extended period.

Installing a custom ROM allows you to use your device’s hardware and how to utilize it. You can install a custom Kernel along with it and tweak the performance. You can even install Google Apps or GApps on your phone according to your choice. Custom ROMs also come with frequent updates from developers with monthly security patches, bug fixes, and other improvements, unlike the Stock ROM, which is updated after long intervals.
