Thanks for this. I was hesitant to go back to Oreo, but this has become my daily driver.

Really!
I'm hesitant to go back to Oreo too, can you give more details? like how's the battery life compared to Pie? how do you like the stability?
Have you Magisked it?

I think the battery is not as good as Pie, but it's better than most Oreo builds. It's hard to find all of the customization options, but most of what you would expect from other ROMs is there. It's stable, I don't have to turn off BT to use WiFi, and I don't lose mobile data as frequently as some ROMs (a persistent issue on any custom ROM for me, that requires a reboot to resolve). Substratum works beautifully, without needing to reboot to use newly installed overlays. I chose not to use Magisk, unless a scenario comes along where I find I need it, because it has built-in root, so I thought I'd try that for a while (I'm pretty sure it's just the LineageOS root package, but you don't have to flash it separately). Overall it's a fast and stable ROM. I am keep my phone plugged in more than I usually do, but most of the time I use my phone I'm in my car, so it's plugged in, anyway.

Edit: I did remember one big con (for me): 1080P HEVC playback is not smooth using MX Player (and probably not any player, but I haven't tried others). It's not that I need 1080p video, but that I'm not going to spend hours to reconvert my videos to 720p. This spans all the Oreo ROMs, not just this one. I doubt it will be fixed.

agree and desagree, for the wifi and bt, agree, but for the battery i'm on crDroid 9.0 and my phone stay alive 4 days without charging. pretty complicated to choose the good rom, but thank you Darrian to share your view and opinion.

I think there was some language barrier issue going on there. I never claimed that this ROM had good battery life. I'm pretty sure you're saying that the ROM you are using is a Pie-based ROM, where this ROM is Oreo-based--of course you're getting better battery life. I'm not sure how you're getting 4 days, other than just never using your phone, but still, there is no question that your ROM is going to beat this one in battery life with the same amount of usage.
