LineageOS ROM for Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge! [Android 7.1.1][Nougat]

For those of you who have waited long time for an AOSP(What is AOSP?) ROM, I have some good news for you, a fully-working AOSP ROM is now available for the Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge!

Based on latest Android 7.1.1 sources, LineageOS ROM brings you the best and latest Google pure OS for those of you who rather enjoy Google’s UI than Samsung’s 3rd-party makeover.  Of course, this isn’t for everyone but for those of you who want to dump Samsung and convert your phone into a Pixel/Nexus device.  The ROM itself runs pretty decent with pretty much everything working out of the box including 4G LTE data, voice, bluetooth, GPS, etc…etc…  Now, with that said you may still encounter bugs as this is still a ROM in development.  But the good news is that we see a long term development of AOSP ROMs for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, which simply means more custom ROMs for you.

As for camera, you will get the standard AOSP camera which doesn’t have 4K video recording yet (but 1080P works just fine) so make sure you absolutely don’t need 4K video recording before using this ROM as daily driver.  Overall, LineageOS ROM is definitely a refreshing way to get Google pure OS so definitely give this ROM a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
