As this is a beta version, the package will not be as smooth as a stable build. In fact, it may carry a lot of bugs and some third-party apps might not work as well. Also, the OS may lead to your device heating, lagging, and fast battery draining. Therefore, we do not recommend you flash it on your primary phone. Lastly, do not forget to take a backup of your data before testing the beta version.
