If you are looking for a good Android 5.0.2 Lollipop AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?), then definitely check out the BlissPop ROM.
Based on latest Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, BlissPop is a highly-modified version of CM12, bringing you a ton of customizations including some features from Android 5.1. I know Android 5.1 just came out and one of the coolest features is its drop-down WiFi menu so you can easily switch your wireless network. Well, with BlissPop, you get pretty much the same feature with its Bliss Interface in Settings.
I know official LG Lollipop is out for most LG variants but for those of you with T-Mobile G3, the wait has been a bit too long, we have still not received official Lollipop update even after 3 months while other variants have received them. But no worries, you can easily root and install a custom ROM such as the BlissPop ROM, bringing your phone back up to speed at Android 5.0.2. Of course, you will lose your LG native camera and IR blaster feature but it’s not a huge deal since Google Camera does fairly well and hopefully you are not a pro-couch potato.
What I really like about BlissPop ROM isn’t just the endless number of customizations, it’s the way they have it organized, making it easy for users to easily navigate through the menus to tweak their phone. BlissPop may have one of the most customizable Lollipop ROMs out so far which includes wide array of options including customization for you status bar, navigation menu, recents menu, notification drawer, lockscreen, power menu, and comes with goodies like Gesture Anywhere, App Circle bar, and much more.
Status bar options are filled with more options than you can imagine. Don’t forget to enable brightness control!
In Notification drawer, you will find “Detailed WiFi View”, enable this option and you will have the same WiFi switching capability as Android 5.1 does.
My absolute favorite feature? It’s definitely App Circle Bar, makes switching to your favorite apps easy with one-hand, this is very useful when trying to use your phone on the go.
Camera? Works flawless. Before Lollipop, 4K UHD video recording was not supported at all. Starting with Lollipop, you will get all the 4K video you want even with an AOSP ROM such as this one.
Overall, BlissPop has really come far in the last few months that I have been watching. This ROM is also available for many other Android devices and it’s probably one of the most customizable custom ROMs on Android Lollipop. So, definitely give this guy a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
