Guys here is my general review for Validus after a 2 days use.. @althafvly
I was actually facing some issues since last 2 days while using this, due to that i was planning to switch on different ROM, but as i have already promised & due to request from some users i'm writing this review..
I'm on XT-1550 2 GB Ram model & Rooted with latest Magisk beta 14.5

Below are the things tested by me.

1 - VoLTE - Working perfectly fine..
2 - Calls - Working fine on both SIM cards, No issues like a low call volume here.
3 - Data - Working fine with first SIM not tested on 2nd SIM.
4 - GPS - Working fine with Google Maps & whatsapp live location.
5 - Wifi & Hotspot - Wifi working fine , not tested Hotspot yet.
6 - Video Calls - Buggy, Tested with Whatsapp & Duo, whenever you're trying to do a whatsapp call to any user it will take a 5-6 sec to display a call screen.. also taking some 4-5 sec to start a video call after call picked up, while video call going on some weird sounds are going on in background (Like Kirr - Kirr)..While on duo there is no connection problems on calls but sound issue is exist here too.
7 - Bluetooth - Working fine & Bluetooth Audio is also working fine.
8 - Sdcard - working fine with Default file manager & ES file explorer (Adopted Storage not tested), I'm unable to test ExFat this time as i have changed my Sdcard file system to FAT32
9 - Audio playback - working fine.. tested with Sony music player app.
10 - Video playback - working fine with Mx player & YouTube... one thing i have noticed that while playing YouTube videos on full screen when i was trying to adjust screen brightness nothing will happened & unable to scroll down brightness slider.. after trying many attempts it was moving once but again stucked.. this is not a case with Mx player.
11 - Screen mirroring - working fine.. tested with My Sony Bravia while playing Youtube video's. (attached screenshot)
12 - PIP mode - working with Whatsapp Video calling.. it's also Working with duo & Google maps.. For YouTube not working for me. Some user's on this Forum confirmed that PIP for YouTube will only works if you have Youtube RED subscription or you need to use Old version of YouTube ( i have not tested this).
13 - Email Sync - working fine.. tested with 2 different Google accounts in Gmail application.
14 - Camera - working fine.. tested with default camera, Moto Z camera & some beauty cams
15 - Video Recording (Camcorder) -Broken but working with Footage Camera sometime. You can upload videos taken on whatsapp.
16 - Clock Alarms - Working fine.
17 - Notification snooze - working fine.
18 - Ambient display - When ambient display turns on, you have to double tap the screen to get to your lockscreen. It was a single tap on Nought ROMs
19 - Security Settings - Pattern & Pin locks are working fine, However I'm not able to use Trusted Face from Smart Lock setting, giving FC
20 - Battery charging LED is off by default & can't see any option to enable it.
20 - Moto gestures/actions working fine.
21 - Root - I have rooted with Magisk 14.5 & Safety net passed without any extra modules. Play Store still shows device is uncertified & to get ride of it clear app data once.
22 - Ram Management & Battery life - Ram Management is good, but i have noticed some lags while using whatsapp & Telegram.. about battery life it is good.. i will post a review today itself for battery life if possible.
23 - WolvesDen - It is basically a special features menu in settings where there are many customization features available.. i have not tested much features from that as i don't like much customization.. Here are some screenshots https://imgur.com/a/4zFWk
24 - Screen Recording - Buggy, i have tested with AZ screen recorder, it may record a videos but recorded videos are have half screen flickering, also whenever you're trying to record a screen at that time at the top right corner between battery stats & time one dotted box comes .. it will be gone after force closing screen recorder app. Check a screenshot from here https://imgur.com/a/CFcUW

What do i think about this ROM ?
The ROM is good except some minor bugs, but it's acceptable as this ROM is at a beta stage.. Good work @althafvly .. I hope you will continue development of this Rom whenever sources get updated or there is a Major changes made..
That's it for now for my this ROM general review.. I hope you all Guys like this review.. Do click on thanks if you like this.. thanks for reading hope to see you on my next review..

Hi Guys,
Here is awaited battery life review for validus.. as many of you're aware i'm a mid-range user (Not too heavey) who never played games on my device.. My device XT - 1550 2 GB Ram Rooted with Magisk 14.5

My Brightness was around 20-25% (Adaptive brightness is off) for the first 6.5 hours of usage & it was on continues 4G for around 6.5 hours on first Sim, After that it was connected to WiFi for all the time.. i have done tone of internet surfing via UC -Browser & also on chrome by this time, used a Whatsapp & Telegram quite a lot, 2 G-mail accounts are logged in my Device.. so mail syncing is also going on in background & played a YouTube videos for which i always watching in 720p.

After 6.5 hours of usage i have reduced my brightness to lower as possible & after that my Device is connected to WiFi router..

I'm continuously surfing XDA & other stuff using a UC browser & also played some YouTube videos & videos with Mx player was always been active on Whatsapp & Telegram also.. Played a music for around 40 min.. Also there is a lot of network fluctuations For JIO & Airtel.. In my home area there is a network fluctuation for almost all operators.. so this will be also impacting on battery life a lot.

Also there is no ghost on this ROM noticed, even it is based on los kernel.. Thumb's up to @althafvly for his great work.. one more good thing is that i have not seen/faced any random reboots while using this ROM..

So what do i think about battery life in this ROM? I think It's quite nice till now.. Good battery backup while comparing to other Oreo ROMs.. I hope the development for this ROM will be continued.. I will be moving now to some different custom ROM... But still if any help required then do let me know @althafvly

That's it for now for my this ROM review.. I hope you all Guys like this review.. Do click on thanks if you like this.. thanks for reading hope to see you on my next review..

@althafvly

Hi, I just tested the two rom and i see that they doesn't have their own boot animation, so i check your device tree on github and see the problem,
in device/motorola/osprey/gzosp.mk :
You need to use :
Code:
TARGET_SCREEN_WIDTH := 720
TARGET_SCREEN_HEIGHT := 1280
instead of :
Code:
TARGET_BOOT_ANIMATION_RES := 720
Because it's what the gzosp vendor search to add the right boot animation ^^

I hope this can help you
By the way, thanks for your work on osprey, it's really cool
