Please add the procedure of flashing this and that if treble based recovery is needed or not. Users please add reviews and if bugs found about this ROM in this thread. It will be helpful for both other users and developer.

Ok, little review after a only 2 hours of use and comparing it to LOS 15 which is the other ROM I have used extensively. This ROM performs very well, is fast and stable. Ram usage seems to be on par with LOS 15. Ram management is good too, only a few times did some apps take a bit of time to open up but that might have been the fact that I was testing and opening everything I could, so your experience could be better than mine in this area. Biggest issue I think is the fingerprint reader, but that's normal and expected in all Oreo ROMS right now, fpc manufacturer is fast and responsive and Goodix can have a little delay when the screen is locked and off, otherwise it performs just as well. Battery depends on kernel installed, personally I have experienced it to be just as good as LOS 15 so you should too. It offers the convenience of included Gapps and all signs of a Pixel phone in terms of customization and what's to expect with menus, colors, etc.

Hey, lurker here looking to flash my Redmi 5 with this ROM. Any updates to your review? Also, what's the version of GApps that's packaged with this ROM? I usually go for 'pico' GApps, so was curious if this has other Google bloatware installed.

Thank you.

    Some bugs and wanting features

    Hey i am a redmi 5 user and i am running your pixel experience on my device. Firstly the rom is fabulous, it works smooth leaving that finger print bugs that are present, everything else is great.
    I have a few bugs that i thought should be told about
    1. Call rejection hangs when u use the reply button while an incomeing call
    2. Sometimes WhatsApp hangs while sending a photo
    Some features that i and other users might like to see
    1. Port google cam- as the rom is pixel experience itself so if we can somehow port a stable google cam version to the next rom update it will be just great
    2. Face unlock- it's quiet a asked for feature. I have seen it work on linage 15.1 unofficial rom or the Havoc rom based on pie. Bring this feature to our pixel experience rom will not only boost user experience but will also attract other users to switch to this rom
    Thank you
    Sarthak
    With warm regards

    Ok, thanks @drnoellyg for the detailed explanation! Why there is this bug in all the custom roms? Any hope to see this fixed anytime soon?

    It is because the official manufacturer (Xiaomi) had yet to release some things publicly because this phone (Rosy) only got up to Nougat (so far). So on the Nougat ROMs (like Lineage 14) there is no fingerprint delay or anything like that, because those developers were working with the same things that Xiaomi was working.

    With Oreo and Pie ROMs or images there are some minor bugs as you saw (some fingerprint sensors, IR; hotspot, etc.), and the devs make their best effort to solve such problems with the knowledge they have. Sometimes they fix it completely (like IR blaster or hotspot) and other times they fix as best they can (like fingerprint for Goodix).

    But the good news is that Rosy is getting Oreo soon enough so Xiaomi is now testing things officially and some ROMs already have the fingerprint issue fixed entirely, so no more delay of any type. You can try those roms here on xda or go to some official sites. It's only a matter of time before PE official applies those same fixes (AEX has already). so stay tuned for future ROM updates.
