The first Benchmark result on the left belongs to Incipient OS.

As compared to the Benchmark score of Stock ROM, the Multi-Core score of Incipient OS (2091) is much lower.

Incipient OS Antutu 3DBench

I was unable to do the Antutu Benchmark test as I was unable to install “Antut 3DBench” from the Play Store.

Even with the direct installation of apk file, the app hanged at one point.

 

Check out the features of Incipient OS while running on LG Stylo 3 Plus with the help of below youtube video

CONCLUSION:  Out fo all 5 Custom ROMs, I liked Resurrection Remix the most and Lineage OS comes next. The 64-bit ROMs (AOKP & Incipient OS) were not very fluid in operation. AICP is out of the question as it missed many of the essential phone features.

  1. Thanks for posting this detailed list of ROMs. Sadly, I use G pay all the time. Maybe that’ll get fixed at some point. I hope that I can get to Android Pie with a future update.
