    Been already running KitKat on my N7000 since a fortnight or so. HAH! (Actually, I'm running Paranoid Android, hence why I've already got KitKat. It is still in beta.)

    On a more serious note, though, I can't wait to see my friends' faces turn to awe when CyanogenMod is released for their particular phone. It was a breath of fresh air when I did away with the Touchwiz interface (i.e. Samsung's interface and apps that replace the default ones). Stock Android is so much lighter! Plus, KitKat is definitely smoother than Android's previous versions, what with the lower RAM requirements.

    Touchwiz is aweful despite having some cool stuff. when i bought my S3 i knew it was fast i saw it, but it could barely handle this samsung crap. well i went for custom rom best decision ever, the phone FLIES

    That's nothing special, I've been running kitkat (cyanogenMod 11) for over a month on both my 600mhz single core ZTE Blade and my barnes and noble Nook HD(nearly 2 months), it really does make a huge difference on low powered devices like the Blade with slow CPU's and only 512mb RAM. :)

    I think I'm ready to try it (Samsung Galaxy S3, currently on CM 10.2) when they release a RC. The only thing I HATE about this current version (Android 4.3.1) is that bluetooth sucks, stutters all the time, I can't use it at all. It seems this has been a common bug in the whole world, I hope it is fixed in CM 11.

    Was on a CM 11 nightly a few days ago. Unfortunately theres always some sort of deal-breaker that prevents me from sticking with the nightlies. Omni-Rom 4.4 looking good so far, may stick a bit longer with that.

    I quite like touchwiz. Running stock samsung with some xposed module tweaks, custom roms are a well and good, but I don't want to have to deal with all the compromises and disadvantages that come with them.

    Try Slimroms (SlimBean or SlimKAT) !!

    If you want a light weight ROM Slim is the one to go for, it's minimal, fast and has great Dev support.

    PS: dump Play Store and install Aptoide if you want freedom!! You'll thank me later..

    Same here. Using an S3 Stock with all the Samsung crap removed. The phone is simply fast when nothing from Samsung is installed.

    I've been on stock Samsung ROMs with both SGS2 (Siyah Kernel) and Note 3. They work pretty well, and you haven't got compatibility issues. They improve TouchWiz with each release. I gave it a try, but returned to Nova Launcher pretty soon as it makes using the phone so much better.

    Still, CM is a good option if you're on some older phone and want to try KitKat.

    Nope, that's nothing special. That's why I said that I wasn't being serious. ;)


    Well, I ain't a big fan of Touchwiz, though I do find it a bit too colorful. The thing is, I have an older phone, and I wanted a smoother experience. Had I owned an S3, I don't think I would've bothered with custom ROMs that early.

    You are right about compromises and disavantadges. Oftentimes, there's that lil' feature that's missing and you can't do much about it. For instance, my phone doesn't pick up some wifi networks anymore, so I have to enter everything manually or use WPS.
