debloated fast-rom galaxy s5

If you have been using the Samsung Galaxy S5, then you know that it isn’t the smoothest smartphone in the planet. Of course, it has some of the best specifications, the fastest processor and 2 GB RAM which are said to make the phone blazing fast.

Most of the times, the phone is fast and doesn’t lag at all. Thanks to the powerful processor and graphics card, the Galaxy S5 can play the latest and most intensive games without any problems. It doesn’t lag or stutter. Even though it doesn’t lag while doing intensive tasks, it lags while doing basic things like navigating through the home screen.

It is really weird to see that a flagship phone can play the latest games without any problems but it struggles to stay smooth on simple things like going through the app drawer.

It isn’t the phone’s fault because it is very powerful. The problem is with its Touchwiz firmware. Touchwiz has a lot of useful applications and features like air view gestures, S Health and other Samsung apps.

These apps really slow down the phone. The bloated Touchwiz firmware that the Samsung Galaxy S5 has causes the phone to lag even on some of the simplest tasks.

Fortunately, you can install custom ROMs which are based on Touchwiz but are debloated. This means that all Samsung apps that make the phone lag are removed. XtreStoLite is the lightest Touchwiz ROM for the Samsung Galaxy S5.

XtreStoLite ROM is only 414 MB in size while a normal Touchwiz firmware is around 1 to 1.5 GB. Along removed bloat, the ROM features 4 kernels including Adam kernel from Wanam and KToonsez, stock Android options, removed KNOX, native call recording and FsTrim command to keep your phone smooth and fast.

If you want any of the removed apps, you select what to install during the installation process of the ROM using Aroma. Also, you can choose from different mods like advanced reboot menu, 3Minit battery mod and modded messages app.

The XtreStoLite is available for the following devices:

  • G900F
  • G900I
  • G900T
  • G900M
  • G900W8
  • G900L
  • G900S
  • G900K
  • G900H
