Love to have that simple yet elegant UI and UX of the stock Android OS? You can have it purely on your Redmi Note 8 (Ginkgo) or Redmi Note 8T (Willow). Both devices are basically the same except the latest also sports NFC.
crDroid is a cool custom Android ROM built based on LineageOS source which comes from AOSP.
You might have similar looks and feels through custom MIUI themes. However, the overall performance would be very different especially the UI sleekness.
The concept of crDroid is basically simple. The ecosystem brought in crDroid is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your phone.
In terms of the user interface (UI), the ROM boasts the styles of Pixel phones. It has similar icons pack, background, colour themes, etc.
If you love Pixel Experience, you’ll love this ROM even better.
However, crDroid does not come with Google Apps (Gapps) by default.
Since both devices have different codenames, the ROMs built for them are also different are not interchangeable.
You cannot flash Ginkgo’s ROM on Willow and vice versa. Otherwise, it’ll brick for sure.
