Top 5 Reasons Why People Prefer Custom ROM to Stock Android

There has been a long debate on the type of Android user interface preferred by users. While some prefer the bare stock ROM interface without any customizations, some other prefer the customized ROM interface.

Before I go further, let me explain what Stock ROM and Custom Rom mean. Stock ROM/Android is the default Android Operating System (OS) that was designed by Google itself, without any attachment, bloatware or customization. While Custom Rom is a mod (modified) version of the Operating system with lots of customizations, improvements and modifications.

Now both the customized ROM and Stock ROM have disadvantages and advantages, but in this article, we are going to be highlighting 5 top reasons why people users prefer the customized ROM to the undefiled stock ROM.

*More Features

The customized ROM due to its customizations comes with a lot of added features that are not present in the stock ROM. These customizations can range from improvement on an existing feature to addition of none existent feature.

*Cool and Customizable UI

This is the part that trips me the most. Personally, I feel the default stock ROM interface is boring and not exciting. But with a customized ROM, you get a cooler User interface and a more beautiful design.

This is one of the greatest strength of the customized user interface. The fact that you can add and delete what you want and don’t want makes the custom ROM really cool. You get to add new features and show off and impress your friends.

*Improved performance

This is an aspect subject to debate. Some believe once something is customized, it has to be heavy. The shocker came in when news broke that the world’s fastest device, OnePlus 6 is running on a custom ROM. So now, the myth has been destroyed.

*Better signal quality

The fact that custom ROM allows you alter some build elements makes you have access to some things you would normally not have access to. Custom ROMs helps you to improve your base-band which in turn increases the signal and quality of your phone call and phone signal.

Install Apps on SD card

This feature was formerly available on the stock ROM but is currently not possible. When your phone runs out of space occasionally when you install new apps, this is the one feature you would love to have.

    One cannot install Apps on SD Card when using Stock Android? I didn’t know that.
    I was planning on getting the Infinix Note 5 Pro as second phone (when it comes out), but this might be a turn-off.
