Quick review of ArrowOS Q Android Generic System Image (GSI)
Just like I said earlier, ArrowOS focus is to give users the original AOSP experience with selected essentials extra features only. With only minimal features to be maintained means more stability and developers can focus more to the performance tuning instead.
Even on the older version which is ArrowOS Pie GSI, it is one of a few GSI that I found Miracast are working on my ASUS Zenfone Live L2 Android phone.
Because the system is not bloated with unnecesarry features, the ArrowOS Q is one of GSI we would like to consider if we have a low end Android device, just like my ASUS Zenfone Live L2.
