One of the best things about Android is the customisation. You can change your launcher, your icon pack, set your default apps or the system font. You can do a lot more, but if I began to list everything out, we would be here all day. But for some people, even that it is not enough. Sometimes you just want a different flavour of Android than whatever your phone came pre-installed with. And Android allows you to do that too. If you are willing to tinker around, you can install custom ROMs on your phones.
Custom ROMs come in all shapes and sizes. Some try to emulate the software of Pixel phones and provide the experience of stock Android; some try to offer a highly customisable and tweakable UI; some mix and match the most popular elements of different Android skins. There truly is something for everyone. And if you want to try as many custom ROMs as possible, Xiaomi devices are a great choice. They have always been popular in the custom ROM community. And one of the most popular devices is the Poco F1(Beryllium). The device’s massive popularity has ensured that its users have no shortage of choice when it comes to choosing a custom ROM.
And of the options available is ColtOS. ColtOS is AOSP based ROM that focuses on customisations and adding useful features from other custom ROMs. Some of its prominent features are customisable VoLTE icons, different themes, and advanced power menu. And users will be excited to know that ColtOS 6.3 for Poco F1 is now available to download. The update brings in a host of changes and improvements. We have provided the complete changelog below.
