Xposed Framework adds extra features and functions to your device. Basically, Xposed Framework modifies your system and brings a number of handy features that you would love having on your device. Xposed is a much better choice as compared to a custom ROM. When you flash a custom ROM, it changes the whole system of your device. To recover your device you’ve to flash a stock ROM. There’s a number of useful custom ROMs available around, but not all the users have that kind of experties to handle a custom ROM. This is where Xposed plays its role. Xposed comes in the form of a flashable zip, and to handle Xposed Modules you simply need to install its APK file. Xposed tweaks your existing system and adds your desired features that you can select from the list of available Modules in Xposed application. You can modify your stock ROM the way you want. Using Xposed your device will stay on a stock-modified ROM rather then a full custom ROM. Just in case you don’t like Xposed’s existence in your Android smartphone or tablet, you can simply uninstall it and that’s all. Android-6.0-Marshmallow
