Xiaomi redmi 1s is the budget device with great specifications.If you take a look at the specifications the device comes with a snapdragon 400 chipset with 1gb ram and 8 gb internal storage.There are some problems with this device like over heating while browsing,playing games or using camera and internal storage is also too low.The first thing you do avoid those problems is to root redmi 1s and then you go for custom roms to improve device performance and battery life .In the last post we showed you the list of custom roms available for redmi 1s.In this post we will share you the custom kernels available for redmi 1s(armani).
Custom kernels plays an important role in improving the device performance and battery life over custom roms.Some features can only be accessed if you have a custom kernel flashed over other rom.Features like double tap to wake the device and swipe to turnoff the screen are hardware related and can only be enabled through kernel or Controlling your device cpu so that it does not overheat and saves the battery life.
Do you actually need a custom kernel for redmi 1s when you have lot of  custom roms with great alternative features?
Answer is yes.As we said kernel plays crucial role to optimize device performance.If your favourite rom  is laggy then you might consider overclocking the cpu or you want a better battery life on your custom rom which can only be possible by flashing custom kernels.  If you are unable to find kernels for redmi 1s the we provide you the kernels available for Xiaomi redmi 1s armani.
