ROM is very smooth, good optimized , clean , battery last longer
Pure Google-android experience

What I did:
* Deleted all useless Chinese apps
* changed original email, calendar, calculator app with the original google ones
* changed dpi to 445 , looks better in apps and itīs stable
* default language is set to English , time zone is changed to Europe summer time.
* added Apollo music app / original music app is deleted
* deleted Chinese zte browser and replaced with newest google chrome
* deleted default launcher, added nova launcher
* managed to get location fix via Wi-Fi

What was moded by the Chinese:
* accelerated boot speed (15-16s)
* white circle battery
* better power-saving mode (doesnīt lag so much)
* when you click on the right corner of the display when is the time - you lock the screen
* Off-screen CRT effect
* it shows network speed on status bar
* itīs ROOTED
* optimized touch screen
* added Sony camera imaging engine
* more reboot options in settings
* and other optimizations

What you will need:
