Guide: The best phones and tablets for LineageOS

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

The following post was written by Ryne Hager and Corbin Davenport.

The vast majority of Android device buyers don't know or care what a custom ROM is. And that's completely fine - a phone or tablet's stock ROM will be enough for 99.9% of potential users. But for the 0.1% that like to tinker, the development community surrounding a given device can drastically impact the value. Your purchase can become a much better deal if there is a wealth of custom ROM options available, extending its lifespan for possibly years (and nearly a decade for the HD2).

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

When we last covered the LineageOS project, support for the Nexus 9 was added along with a few phones from Xiaomi. Since then, more devices have been added to the official builds, and there are a wealth of new features in the ROM. Without any further ado, let's take a look.

First, it might be best to go over some of the functionality added since our last post. You can now disable album art on the lockscreen, the sensitive numbers list has been expanded with entries for new countries, the alarm clock can now set a system profile when an alarm triggers, and the ROM's media codecs have been updated.
