PixelOS is an AOSP based ROM, with Google apps included and all Pixel goodies (launcher, wallpapers, themed icons, google sans fonts, Monet color based system wide theming, boot animation), a fork of OG Pixel Experience with improvements on the top of it. Huge respect to Pixel Experience team for their work, thanks to them for making this ROM possible.
In short a fully functional Pixel Experience with just the right amount of essentials.

Code:
/* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Awesome! Previously on PE+ but it suddenly has a high battery drain, so switch to this to have similar experience. So far so good!

My only feedback is double tap to sleep doesn't seem to work, also I'm missing slide status bar to adjust brightness.

Thanks OP!

I am not sure what features this ROM has that other Pixel-style ROMs don't. I think, maybe, the answer is none? However, it is very stable, and battery life seems a lot better than what I got with Pixel Experience.

I'll probably try some others too, but will come back to this given how stable and efficient it seems. Are there any killer features of this ROM that I'm missing? Also, are there plans to make this official, so that it can get updates through OTA?

Now I have data connection, but I can't call, and nobody can call me.... If I delete APN settings no call, no data connection.... Very good.

Hello, thank you for your efforts. I want to raise a question. It seems that Unicom SIM card can not be used normally. I have tried many APNs, but I can't dial and answer them. I can surf the Internet normally

(I use translation software. Maybe you don't understand it.)

Still using this ROM, waiting patiently for the next update!

I think my only gripe is somehow on some game (eg. Brawl Stars) it lag sometimes. But COD runs smooth. I notice some jitter here and there, but overall seems smooth.

    I have been using this for two days now and honestly this the most polished Pixel rom I've seen for this phone. Battery life is much better than PE+ and no bugs anywhere to be found. Great job, hope it doesn't get abandoned.

    I didn't have this issue in PixelOs.
    Mine is also safe from the drain *knockonwood
    I did have the drain on pixel experience plus, that's why I switched to PixelOS.
