Best Custom ROMs for Redmi Note 5 Pro
1. Pixel Experience ROM
If you want to experience stock-based UI then no other ROM can beat the Pixel Experience. It gives full experience of Pixel phone and on top of that, it comes with the latest Android OS. The ROM has gained the popularity since the launch of Google Pixel 2. In this ROM the Google Camera comes by default so you do not have to enable Camera2 API on your phone.
From my experience, I can say that this ROM is the fastest ROM and also it is ideal for gaming. But if you are looking for a customizable ROM then this ROM is not for you. And if you need performance just go for this ROM and you will not be disappointed.

2. Oxygen OS ROM
As you all know Oxygon OS is the official UI for OnePlus phones and developers have ported the Oxygen OS directly from OnePlus 6 for Redmi Note 5 Pro. The ROM is based on Android Pie. All the gestures that are available on OnePlus 6 are also working on this ported ROM.
The ROM performs well in Antutu benchmark and secured good numbers. Games also work good on this ROM but compared to pixel experience is lags behind. If you decided to go for this ROM I will suggest to go into setting and hide the Notch. And battery performance is not up to the mark but you can flash custom kernel and fix that too.
