Greetings everybody,

How are u all as we all know that google released android N and a few Google devices have gotten preview version additionally so Santhosh m a Xda developer have created cm14 android n base for Redmi note three sd we need to appreciate his exertions currently I’m planning to review cm14 latest build (5-10-2016).

Let’s start 

What works?

Wifi
Bluetooth
Audio
Camera (only pic capture as of now, video rec is broken)
RIL
GPS
Fingerprint
Other basic items
Volte

What doesn’t?

Video recording
CM related features or something that is out of my scope and in CM scope
Goodix fingerprint shouldn’t be operating ( not tested, however )
Stuff that I’d not have noticed.

Changelog (05/10/2016)
Sync with latest CM ( not a lot of feature aspect, button backlight works currently, though)
VoLTE should currently work out of the box. You do not need to flash tons of microcode zips ( make sure you’re clean flashing )
Camera fixes (Photo capture can work fine and will not crash any longer. recording isn’t still absolutely functional/functional totally),
Slightly improved performance and battery backup,
Other misc changes.

Previous changelogs are out there in source link you guys can check it. 


My Review

Rom is incredibly sleek and fast
cm14 ui is impressive
the camera works nicely with plenty of options have a glance at screenshots to know better
Volte feature works nice no call drops and network drops
Call quality is nice no disturbance
Fingerprint detector works well no problems with that will add five fingerprints
Moreover, multitasking is incredibly quick and smoother
Ram management is okay even though I used to be running over thirteen apps background 423 MB ram free and also lag free
Reply through notification bar works nicely
Battery backup is nice six hours twenty-three minutes screen on time with five-hitter left overall usage is sixteen hours I used to be using Facebook, Qq Messenger, FB messenger, 4and 4G network with downloading and hotspot were four devices connected, &  playing clash of clans, dragon hills & tom gold rush games
Animations are nice like apps opening and for notification panel dragging
Power saving options are smart however I did not used it as a result of I used to be using mobile to test battery for review purpose

Bugs that I Found

No recording if we tend to attempt to record video then camera can give crashing reboot once will get fine (it is already mentioned however some guys still can attempt to open video mode in camera to record videos) and recording will not work with third-party apps conjointly
Some force closing problems in settings for a few features even for clash of clans game and dragon hill game
When we try to comment in FB with pic in comment section it will not be happening like it is coming back to home screen tried again and again
sometimes in gallery pics aren’t showing
Camera quality needs some additional improvement
In settings >status bar settings > battery style is not changing and even battery charger also not showing I actually have used battery charger show app from play store
When we use mobile net to download apps from play store it’s not working and showing downloading only however through wireless local area network it works nicely (But on guy said apps download through mobile is functioning however sometimes it gets to stop at middle and will not work for a few time and can work again )but on behalf of me it does not work least once also

I know ROM is in beta stage and bugs are common that to it is cm14 we can call it as a newborn also and 90th rom is stable above mentioned bugs aren’t major once so they will fix it in future release updates

We need to mention huge thanks to Santhosh m for this awesome ROM
