I think Version 5.2 is lag UI Than V5.1 . How can I get smooth pixel launcher UI ? Thank you for your help.

other issues on 5.2 :
- it's not possible to encrypt the phone on my device: even when it is fully charged and plugged in, the button to encrypt is not displayed in the encryption settings.
- a minor one : the number of unread messages is not displayed on the text message icon on the home screen. same for missed phone calls.

apart from that, it's working smoothly so far, thanks.

Button is hidden out of screen and you can't scroll it normally. You need move finger sideways on top part of the screen (where this big "encrypt phone" text is) to move it somehow. Then the same with confirmation button.

Something is wrong with spacing on a screen when after turning phone on, it asks to insert PIN code to unlock SIM card. I cannot insert any number after 6 because its cropped by emergency call button.
To get it to work, I pull out the tray and put it in back and then this screen is displayed correctly, but its annoying.

    Date: 10.04.2021
    • April Security Patch
    • Stable and smooth

    • You tell more

    Notes :
    • Gapps included
    • Android 10/11 ROMs need the stock Pie Modem
    • No need to reinstall if it comes from a custom Android 10/11 ROM
    • Clean flash needed
    Installed the fix apk to update via OTA, but when tried to update it just booted to twrp and nothing happened.
    from the next build this will be fixed,
    if you want you can install this kernel that already contains the fix with it you can upgrade normally from v5.1.2 to 5.1.3 via OTA.
    But I recommend that as soon as you do this, pass the kernel again because the version on the site doesn't have this fix
