I have bad experience from begining when I got phone thats was a reason why I started searcing for custom android, it all the time heat from first times i started use it and battery drain very fast.When I bought it I had android 6 ,I install custom android 6 and than problem gone. And now when rolled out nougat I return to stock and phone start heating again, I was hoping to get update ,but for N920I no one knows when update will comes so I use this tutorial.
