Havoc-OS

Havoc OS is a custom ROM/skin that you can flash onto an Android device. It is based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and is heavily inspired by the Google Pixel. The lead developers, SKULSHADY (Anushek Prasal) and ZeNiXxX (Viktor Hermann), have stated that Havoc-OS has so many features that you probably won’t find in any other ROM. They also state that the ROM is “All you can dream of and all you’ll ever need”.

If you go to the official website, you will find a huge list of features for Havoc-OS. From features about quick settings to the lockscreen and even physical buttons on the phone, Havoc-OS presents a lot of options for you. Here are the top features about the ROM that make it so good.

Taking customisation to the next level

If you thought CyanogenMod was the best customisable ROM ever available for Android, then you are in for a treat. Havoc-OS takes customisation to the next level. The custom ROM is a beast when it comes to customisation. You can change almost anything on your device. If it exists, it is customisable.

Material Design

The icons, as well as the UI, follow the material design. Because it is inspired heavily by the Google Pixel, Havoc OS comes with the Pixel launcher equipped “out of the box”. You can obviously change this because the entire ROM is highly customisable.

Battery saving

Almost all phones have a battery saver application that gets activated automatically when the battery falls below 15-20% or you can even switch it on manually. In Havoc however, you get multiple features to do so. One such feature is ‘Sensor block per-package’. You can switch it on manually. What this feature does it that it essentially blocks the access to certain sensors on your phone for certain apps, which saves battery. Another feature is ‘Alarm blocker’, which prevents certain applications from waking up your phone when you get notifications. Using these battery saving features can sometimes give you a massive boost in screen-on times.

Quick Settings

Quick settings can be accessed by pulling the notification shade further down. Most Android skins allow you some basic quick settings including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Mobile data toggles, etc. Havoc-OS, on the other hand, can offer you multiple quick setting toggles, and even some features that wouldn’t previously exist on your device like screen recording (which can be accessed from the quick settings).
