    I have gone to RR (the unified build which was better) and have missed Oxygen and have come back...

    - THE CAMERA app sucks on almost every other custom ROM and the only way to get fast pictures is if you use the manual mode else the app is pretty horrid. (All the camera apps in fact, I tried them all)
    Now it's buttery smooth and quick, just as it was on the first day.

    - EIS for OP3 something we never had but got thanks to the OP3T.. Also the extended screenshot is available on Oxygen.

    - Smooth performance JUST like the day I bought it, the phone is surprising me and snappy, I love it more now. (Even overclocking it didn't feel this good)

    - Regular updates and bug fixes

    - Dark mode (Substratum makes phone seem laggy and often isn't this good)

    - Fingerprint scanner speed is the BEST on Oxygen OS, unlocks quick and screen comes on instantly unlike the lag in custom roms.

    Why I miss Custom ROMS

    - CUSTOMIZATION (Notification bar, status bar, fonts, DPI, overclocking, underclocking)
    - Old Android & Oxygen features (status bar ticker, double press power for camera, sound & notification volumes unlinking)
    - Better battery life by at least an hour

    But trust me I had to actually think about why I miss Custom ROMS. I [e]2764[/e]️ Oxygen OS
    (I tried LOS, RR and Freedom OS with 5 different kernels)

    Oxygen OS is about the best thing OP has going for it at present. I've really not seen any reason to flash ROMs and the OP launcher is excellent. I agree that the cameras on the custom ROMs are pathetic. There is a Snapdragon OP3 camera port that is actually very good and even better than the native OP camera. It's on the xda site and I've installed alongside my OP camera. Works great.

    Definitely... But for some reason the SD cam that I ported then refused to work... Few others had the issue I just gave up

    Frankly, Custom ROMS are maybe a thing to try to spice up your phone's life... Nothing else. It's almost like traveling to a different country and comparing the two.

    How could I Forget the OP launcher... SHELF! It rocks.

    I switched back to stock from FreedomOS a few days ago. Haven't noticed any performance difference from FreedomOS and OxygenOS. Only reason I switched back was because I didn't really take advantage of having root, and learned to live with Google's "bloatware" which I got rid of when I had FreedomOS.

    No matter how many ROMs I try, I come back on OOS because of its stability, Camera and most importantly Battery.

    You have to enable the camera to work by going into Apps in settings and giving the Snapdragon Camera Permission to work. Otherwise it won'topen up after installation. Try that and it should work.

    You should try Phoenix AEX Rom. The best custom rom at the moment.
    Has inbuilt OOS Camera. You can flash Snapdragon camera as well. Battery life is also great.

    I will flash a rom only if OnePlus stops giving us 3/3T users updates. If they dont deliver android O as promised..thats going to be very disappointing..again.
