Being not able to access quick settings tiles is a privacy feature. You can turn off ripple unlock animation to make unlock animation via fingerprint snappier, you can find it in Settings > Display > Lockscreen settings > Ripple animation.I use this ROM daily for about a month now and it's really great! Loving it.
My issues: I don't like that I have to unlock the phone every time I use Quick tiles from the lock screen. Also, unlocking the phone using fingerprint is not very smooth. Other than that, everything is great!
