Stock Android has long been lauded as the go-to choice when buying an Android smartphone. This has been a simple guiding principle for many years, but custom Android skins tend to offer a whole lot more features than Stock Android. Lately, they’ve also been becoming more efficient not only in terms of power consumption but also performance. Custom Android skins offer not only many features that are not a part of Stock Android, but also an immense amount of customisation. No longer do you need to look down on custom Android skins, and with that in mind, here are four smartphones on Amazon for you to consider. 

Redmi Note 9

The Redmi Note 9 comes packing some excellent hardware for the price. But what’s made Xiaomi’s smartphones super popular amongst users is also their heavily customised MIUI skin. MIUI has built up a significant fan following thanks to the numerous features and customisation it comes built-in with, such as complete custom skinning without the need for a third-party launcher.

OnePlus 8

The OnePlus devices have always been known for offering the best hardware combined with a super slick Android skin, which the company calls OxygenOS. While many smartphones feature the latest SoC and tons of RAM, OnePlus devices can offer a far smoother and stable experience thanks to OxygenOS, which is super optimised for speed. However, this doesn’t mean it leaves out essential features. You can apply custom icon packs without the need for a third-party launcher and also set custom colour accents for the UI. 

Samsung Galaxy S20+

Samsung has really improved the quality of its Android Skin which it calls OneUI. Besides all the visual aesthetics, at the very core of Samsung devices is Knox, a hardware-based security solution that’s baked into the software layer as well. Thanks to Samsung Knox and OneUI, users get access to features like Secure Folder and Samsung Pay, all of which offer enterprise-grade security, a kind that is not found on stock Android.

Vivo V19

Vivo has created FunTouch OS, its take on Android, which puts customisation and power-packed features right at the users’ fingertips. The design language of FunTouchOS is completely minimalist and clean. You also get little, but essential features such as the phone reminding you that its time to drink water, along with the usual digital detox-centric features. Vivo’s customisations go even deeper, with their own stock apps that offer more than the Google Stock apps.
