Hi Kyasu, happy to report that its working fine even with a dirty flash from AEX ROM. It all looks very good considering its an early build. My phone is a Korean SHV E330s running DPH1 baseband firmware.
Camera that came bundled with Los doesn't seem to work, I use a Nokia camera port which works fine.
I will hold off on feature issues cause I don't know how many are LOS issues. A key observation was that ambient display was not working on receiving new notifications (screen not waking up).

    @kyasu, how can we best help? do you wish for a list of non-working features? logcats on crashes or feature failures? or both? or is it even too early for those.

    Please don't ask for ETAs on new updates. It is seen as disrespectful throughout the community. Please be patient and wait or find another ROM to use.

    Thanks!

    Well, do you need function to make call or send message ?
    You want to use these function... you can find lineageOS 14.1 kor (idk who made this)
    Or not, i recommend kyasu's lineageOS 15.1
    And Darkness's custom rom series (Oreo)
    Those are p stable so u can using safely..
    Anyway, Have a good day!

    Hey all!
    Holds on to download LineageOS16.0. Now I wonder why there is such a huge slow connection to the download mirrors? It will take you all day to download this.
    Is very annoying

    The sad thing about that answer is that I have already tried all the 4 mirrors that were offered to me at the moment. and none of the mirrors had higher downloads than 145kb / sec

    It worked fine for me, however I had similar problems in the past with afh. Usually restarting the download fixed it tho.

    This is my daily driver right now. Will keep an eye on battery use, but seems OK so far, phone going into deep sleep no issues.
    SHV E330S users, when the ROM boots you will see no simcard error, wait for a seconds till ROM fully boots and the network will appear.
