Spark OS

Spark OS 13.5.5 is one of the best Android 13 ROMs for RealMe 5 Pro or RMX1971. It’s like stock Android or Pixel Experience with some more basic features and customization. Spark OS is one of the smoothest ROMs if not the smoothest ROM available for RealMe 5 Pro/RMX1971.

Very rarely, there is a bit of lag in the UI, but rebooting the device solves it. The battery backup is great, sometimes unpredictable but great. You also get magic erases, and other Google paid features of Google Photos in the GApps to build. Spark OS 13.5.5 also comes with Moto’s Audio app pre-installed.

You can get PE/PE+ for RealMe 5 Pro/RMX1971 but it’s the unofficial build. The only difference between official and unofficial builds is an official build gets OTA updates whereas an unofficial one doesn’t.
