Kernel is same as lineageos one, you would have to try for yourself to find out whats best.

Really awsome rom. Very very fast rom is so snappy. I sleep for 10 hours when i wake up i have loose only 1% battery with screen off. My kernel deep sleep is 99% really great performance. I have 2 issues.
1) How can i change the battery icon to look bigger? Is to small for my eyes.
2) How can i change the quick settings background? i want it a little bit darker.

On my Note 8, phone miss a SIM-card, but operator status is good (I see name of my operator). I try this ROM and Evolution - both ROMs have this bug. Boot up, work 5-10 minutes, lost SIM.
Do you know solution?

Battery life looks great. Im close to 8 hours with my usage. Only with WiFi on no 4G. Speed is great too. All apps open in 1 second no lags or shutters. Kernel deep sleep is great too. I loose 1 every 10 hours with screen off. But I have 3 problems. The signal sometimes disappears randomly. I dont know why and i dont know how to fix it. I have try many combinations but no luck. No have freeze apps for signal or system apps for signal or wakelocks for signal. Im pretty sure is rom bug. I know every service and app when i free it whats gives me. The phone dialer and the phone caller id no have dark theme. The battery icons themes is very small like amaranth says. Some photos for my usage. Hope the next updates will fix this problems. Thanks for the new roms for our Note 8. I have make 4 reboots before take the picture because i loose the signal. Thats why the small empty space on graph.

Interested to know the features.
As this is based Lineage OS, How the Samsung features like IRIS scanner, Health app (Heart beat scan), Stylus support, Camera etc., works ?
Also, Both SD & Exynos are supported ?
