This is great, I am going to try both of these (Slim and RR). What is the main difference between EMUI and SlimROM except for it's smaller? Reviews?

-Newer android version
-Some(most) people like slim/RR/some other custom rom overlay better.
-If you had some problems in EMUI with background user apps stopping (like whatsapp message notifications arriving too late or google photo doesn't sync) you won't have those problems any more.

For me battery in deepsleep goes bit faster on RR than it went on EMUI.
EMUI ~3-8% in 10h
RR ~10-14% in 10h
But maybe it's because the background apps work like you would expect them to work. Or maybe it's something else.

Thanks. I get only about ~10% per 10h on my EMUI, and I'm running modaco rom, which is a slimmed down version of stock EMUI. I haven't had any problems with background apps or other things on modaco, but I like the idea of finally advancing to Nougat on kirin with a functional dual sim.

What about Apps2SD or adoptable storage? Maybe it's not necessary on Slim or RR? Honor 4x is almost useless without adding some internal storage via some such solution.

I think System will always take ~4GB (unless you do some re-partitioning) so you would still need Apps2SD or adoptable.

Is adoptable storage improved in nougat? It was not good enough in MM to really expand storage, so Apps2SD was needed back then.

No idea, I haven't tested adopted storage because Apps2SD is more flexible.
