LineageOS 15.1 on Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Thanks to Ivan_Melar, a senior member of Xda. As I always say, this time developers are working extremely fast for providing ROM to all phones but developers are not making stable right now. Let’s see in future when we will receive the stable Android 8.1 for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Again, thanks a lot to all the developers for providing such amazing ROMs.This LineageOs 15.1 ROM has latest security patch of 5 December 2017 and all the Android oreo features. Now, it is a lot more secure than before and bugs improvement that’s it.

As always custom ROM is famous for their customization. So, we thought why not to bring up latest lineageOS 15.1 for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge so, that you guys can enjoy or experience the Android 8.1 Oreo, by the way, android 8.1 oreo don’t have many new things only logo change and few bugs fixes

Android 8.0 Oreo comes with some bugs fixes and security patches. Every year Google is launching its new Android version with the serial wise alphabet on the bases of sweets.  The ratio of android Oreo is only 3% and still, most of the phones are running on Android Lollipop. But companies are trying to overcome this ratio. Let see in the coming future what will be the ratio of the android version of the devices.

I have uploaded some screenShots, bugs and what’s working. Everything is working fine except these things which I have written in “Bugs” section. This ROM is personally tested by me but screenshots are from Xda. The battery is average, on a full charge, it will last you for 8 hours. Stock android always looks beautiful and many of the users don’t like custom skin UI. Whenever this ROM gets the update. We will update the post too so, please stay connected with us.
