How's the performance and battery life?
Well considering the age of the phone.. Depending on how much I use it during the day.. Some days I need to charge every evening.. other days I can usually go a day and a bit.

My only gripe with Lineage is that when the screen dims it can change the color tone and I haven't found a way to fix that.

Yeh I can't even get through the day. And I'm not doing much really.

I have one that was replaced by Samsung that bootlooped shortly after...if you are the type to take the phone apart to swap the battery I could send you the dead phone I have, just pay shipping (I would suggest after the Canada Post strike). Otherwise you could pop a new one in yourself to breathe some life in it). Send me a PM if you want it and want to try a repair.

You can't do OTA updates.

You can go back to stock and then update to your hearts content and then root etc again.
