I'm on the April 19th nightly and it works exceptionally well. Took me a while to find the features I was accustom to in Carbon-ROM, such as Pocket Mode (which works well too), NAV bar, etc. Tried to load the 04.28 nightly but got slammed with crashes. (See my other thread external to Q&A).
Sound system is good if you manage DSP and get the equalizer to your liking. About the only thing I miss in this ROM, compared to others, is custom vibration patters for different notifications and calls. Would help me if they would have an option to make the speakers louder. Especially rings, general phone calls, and especially on speaker phone.
Best ROM I have seen on battery life. I can go the whole day without a recharge, and I use my phone A LOT!! WiFi is slightly weak but that just may be the hardware. LTE is good. Does better than some of my Samsung phones.
My phone is S-OFF'd, rooted, un-tampered, red developer warning removed, and has a custom boot screen (what the phone has when it turns on, not the boot animation - although I'm working on that).
Running the 4T.24.3218.09_10.26.1718.01L radio. Would like to try some other kernel to support more options.
About the only thing I wish it had was the louder, richer, sound system, custom vibrations for different notifications/calls/et al., and get split screen working - which was seemingly the cause of the 04.28 nightly crashes.
I'll try a new nightly in a week and see if they got things improved.
Otherwise - well worth the install!! I gave up Carbon-ROM for this, and considering all my other devices (save for the GS5 and tablets) run Carbon-ROM, that's saying something!
