Xposed Framework gives you more liberty on your Android device than you could have enjoyed by rooting your phone or tablet.

As a result, users get a completely new Android experience without installing any APK. If you are using Android Oreo on your smartphone, check our list of best Xposed Framework modules for Android Oreo device.
A senior developer from XDA developer community came up with an Xposed Framework for Android Oreo 8.0 and 8.1. Installing Xposed Framework on your Android Oreo is pretty easy; you have to install Xposed Installer and flash the latest framework zip on your device. But which framework you should install on your device? That is a moot question for every Android user. We will help you select the best Xposed Framework modules for your Android Oreo device.
Before you download any Xposed Framework, make sure that you have rooted Android device and enabled “Unknown Source” by going to Settings → Tap on Security.

Top 10 Best Xposed Framework Modules for Android Oreo
#1. Clean Lockscreen
Your phone’s lock screen gathers a lot of unnecessary stuff like backspace button, dialer keypad style numbers, carrier label, info of owner, alarm, status bar icons, date, phone/camera/lock icons, and others. You can tidy up these things with Clean Lockscreen module. Launch the Xposed Installer, go to modules, and tap the Clean lock screen option.
#2. Amplify Battery Booster
I frequently shout that when you wake the screen of your mobile, this occurrence consumes a lot of battery. If you can restrict this habit, you can save your mobile battery, or you can use Amplify Xposed module to boost the battery. This module helps you extend your phone’s battery life by putting control on how frequently you wake the phone screen. You can use some pre-defined options of this module to save the battery life of your Android phone.
#3. WhatsApp Extensions
We have long pushed the default message app into the dark corners and adopted WhatsApp for all serious and not-so-serious chats. But some users go overboard and share a lot of stuff. If you are such an ‘overboarder’, you can use WhatsApp Extensions Xposed module. There are some extensions to WhatsApp to make your WhatsApp conversation more secure and easier. With this module, you can lock individual chats, call directly over the phone, highlight chats, custom wallpaper for each contact, archive chats forever, hide read receipts, zoom profile photo and more.
#4. Instant Face Unlock
When Apple introduced Face Unlock feature in its iPhone X, many Android phone brands followed in Apple’s footsteps. Since it is a new wave in the technology, old smartphones were left behind without this feature as it used front camera of the device. But Android developers took up the challenge and came up with Face Unlock Xposed module. After installing this module, go to Smart Lock in Settings of your Android device to register your face. Next, you will be able to unlock your phone or tablet by looking at the front camera. There is a sting in the tail though. Instant Face Unlock works well with the near-stock build of Android.
#5. YouTube AdAway
YouTube is your entertainment tool, and you don’t want those pesky ads frequently pop up on your mobile screen. You can use YouTube AdAway; as the name suggests, this module will remove video ads as well as information cards that appear at the bottom when a video is run. Remember one thing: you need to restart your Android device whenever you update YouTube app from the Google Play Store.
Not happy with the system fonts on your Android device? You can change those fonts to your choice with iFont Xposed module. This module boasts a treasure trove of fonts you can download and install in a jiffy. This module is compatible with Samsung’s TouchWiz/User Experience, MIUI, Emotion UI of Huawei, and other near-stock builds of Android.
#7. True Silent Mode
When Google released Lollipop, it took the toll on silent mode. Thanks to the True Silent Mode module, you can bring back the good old days, when you could silence your phone easily in your KitKat Android.
This one is arguably the most popular Xposed module in the Android world. This module works at multiple levels in your phone or tablet and has the ability to change nearly everything in your device. You will be surprised with its package as it includes lock screen tweaks, navigation bar modes, notification LED control, fingerprint launcher, Pie control, power menu controls, quick settings customization.
With more than 30 actions, you will be amazed by ChromePie’s ability to customize trigger positions, trigger area size, and pie menu size. Moreover, you can change colors to match web page theme color.
#10. Screenshot Delay Remover
Whenever we capture screenshot on our phone, there is a slight delay in capturing the screenshot. This is quite invisible to our eyes as the process happens in milliseconds. This module removes that delay (500ms to be exact, from 4.2 onwards, 1000 on the lock screen, 500 everywhere else).
That’s all friends!
