ROM or Read Only Memory is a general word, frequently used in computers which define the storage capability of computers. But in the case of smartphones, ROM defines for all the database which is stored in our internal memory, that we can read easily.
Android is a great platform for developers who want to customize the ROM of any device. As Android is open-source, that’s why we have many options with it.
In this article, we will talk about stock and custom ROM.
Stock ROM is the ROM that launched by your mobile company.It is the ROM that comes with the packed box from the manufacturer. It is an official ROM which can be used if your previews ROM has been deleted or if there is any other problem.
Stock ROM usually does not specify a user a user if he wants some changes in their phone like performance, new upgrades, new apps etc. Stil, it is useful as it contains all the previews version and features. Also, you have flashed your phone without entering the new ROM correctly, then you can add it on your own. As it comes from official site so you don’t need to worry about any other issue.
Stock ROM contains same features but it does not contain any bug and any other type of problem. Because before launching any ROM for developers and users, company checks all the ROM, and after all clarification, they launch the ROM.
