Havoc OS Brings A Better Pixel-like UI on Redmi Note 7 1

Bored with the default look and feel of Xiaomi MIUI ROM? Have you tried installing MIUI Themes? Still bored?

Does your boring feeling just elevate to even worst experience? Well, you will need to try a custom ROM on your Xiaomi phone.

If we may suggest you, Havoc-OS is the best candidate to kick away your ennui.

HavocOS is one of the best AOSP-based custom ROM out there. Its popularity comes next after LineageOS and Pixel Experience ROM.

The main key features you can enjoy in running Havoc OS on your Redmi Note 7 device is its super intuitive Pixel-like user interface design.

The concept of this ROM is similar to Pixel Experience. Additional twists have been added to make the ROM even more appealing and better.

HavocOS is born based on the idea, concept, and work of two developers: Anushek Prasal (a.k.a Skulshady) and Viktor Hermann (a.k.a ZeNiXxX).

The main UI of Havoc OS was inspired by Google Pixel. Its developers have added distinctive key features making it as an anti-boring ROM.

A bunch of seriously useful features is planted within.

Style-wise, Havoc OS employs a heavily-tweaked UI with material design 2. Thanks to Skulshady for making it happen.

The list of features is long and you may get bored reading it. However, we still deliver them to you in case if you wondering.
