Lewa OS Android 4.2 on Micromax A116

After using the MegaHD V2 4.2.1 ROM on my MMX A116 for some time I switched to Lewa OS Android 4.2 ROM. The Lewa version is a completely different experience with unique look and seems quite stable.

The MegaHD ROM was great but GPS didn’t work and since I use GPS occasionally, I had to find another ROM. I then found the Lewa OS Android 4.2 ROM. The installation process is the same as on MegaHD (using CWM recovery).

When I rebooted the system, after installing the Lewa OS I fell in love with the new interface; it was different from the usual android interface that you have seen on many android phones. The first thing that I did was to check if the GPS was working and phew, it did work, in fact even got a faster lock.

The performance was smooth, but at times (very rare) the screen lags for a fraction of a second trying to load the icons, but not much of an issue though. Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G worked well. The Interface looks more professional and takes a little time getting used to. The good thing is that you can install apps on external storage.
