  • LineageOS 14.1

It is one of the best ROM available for the device, and the biggest advantage of this ROM is that the interface and features offered are very close to that of the Stock Android. This ROM is based on Android 7.1 Nougat and offers the November security patch which is quite safe. No new features like a third party camera app, audio optimization has been included in this ROM, it one the most simplest and purest Android ROM available on the planet.

It is the third ROM in our list and packs some features due to which we have included it on our list. It is based on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat and is highly customizable. It gives you the option to install and uninstall all Google apps even the user gets access to system apps as well which means he/she can uninstall system apps as well. For audio enhancements, it offers ARISE sound system and comes pre-loaded with Sony music app. This ROM doesn’t have any additional feature and provides a kind of simplistic experience.

  • Liquid Remix ROM

It is the 4th ROM in our list, and the biggest merit of this ROM over the above-provided ROMs is that it is based on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. It comes with all traditional Android Oreo features like adaptive icons, split screen, etc. The ROM is based on LineageOS and AOSP; it offers some customizable options. All gestures, navigation buttons, Fingerprint Scanner, are supported. In short, the developer has not disturbed any of the stock feature which is a good thing and addition of new features over them as icing on the cake.

  • Nitrogen OS

Nitrogen OS deserves the last place on our list because it contains some bugs about which we will talk later. The ROM is based on Android 8.0 Oreo and offers traditional Oreo features along with its customizable options. As per some sources, it is one of the best stable ROM but some claims that it has some severe bugs, if you are into rooting and all for a while, then you can surely give this ROM a try. In-Screen/Physical navigation keys are working, and Fingerprint Scanner also operates normally in this OS.

These are the five custom ROM’s which according to us are the best available for the OnePlus 5 device. For installing each ROM, a rooted device is required.
