Best Custom ROMs for Moto G5s Plus [Sanders] in 2021

Best Custom ROMs for Moto G5s Plus

We know that Android is an open-source operating system that means Android developers who want to create a Custom ROM for their phones can build upon the AOSP source code that is freely available to them.

Now, it is worth noting that Motorola released the Moto G5s Plus a few years back and this phone is right there among one of the most popular phones in the company’s lineup.

This also means that a lot of users are still using the phone to date but the sad part is that this phone is not going to receive any official updates.

However, we have got that one covered for you because this article is all about the list of best custom ROMs for moto g5s plus that you can install on your device.

Note that before installing the Custom ROM, you need to have an unlocked device and have a custom recovery installed.

If you are not sure what that means, you will be well advised to not try anything that bricks your phone.

Also, you should make sure that your battery is charged to 50% or more during this process and take a full backup of your device before starting this process as your data might get lost.

If you have never heard of Pixel Experience ROM despite being in this community, you have either heard of Custom ROMs for the first time or are living under a rock.

We say this because Pixel Experience is considered as one of the best and most premium Custom ROMs right now because of its features, support as well as the experience and stability of using it.

One thing we can proudly say is that the name does justify its experience. You will not only have a “Pixel Experience” after flashing this ROM on your device but your entire phone will be converted into a Pixel phone.

That is because this ROM contains all the Pixel exclusive features such as sounds, ringtones, notification tunes as well as wallpapers exclusive to Pixel and the Pixel launcher as well.

One thing that might disappoint you is that this ROM has not been ported to Android 11 for the Moto G5s Plus but there is nothing to worry about as its features are such that you will not need to have any Android 11 features missing since most of them are baked into this ROM from Android 9 itself.
