    In case you don't know what EAS is, it's being used in all S845 devices and has replaced good ol' interactive and older gen schedulers on Android. You can read more about EAS at:
    https://www.xda-developers.com/google-pixel-fastest-android-phone-eas/
    https://developer.arm.com/open-source/energy-aware-scheduling

    OP3/T doesn't officially support EAS as OnePlus didn't put any resources in developing it for OP3 kernel. Also, the concept was introduced by Pixel devices first of all so not widely available in OP3's time.

    My Observations: I have tested this kernel for a whole week now and it has been rock stable. Battery back-up is as good as other custom kernels and OOS feels much snapier and fluid in UI transactions. What impresses me most is that the latest kernel update is able to maintain fluidity without any input or CPU boost enabled. Rest, YMMV. So here is the link to original XDA thread, and I hope you guys will be interested in trying something new if you haven't tried already.

    Please Note: All credits and complaints should go to XDA thread. I am merely spreading someone's really good work to this forum and to users who might not have been aware about it. Enjoy a fluid OP3 experience!

    I am currently trying the new r23 with blu_schedutil governor, it's really smooth while keeping a great battery life. Give it a shot!
