As the development of roms for our mate seems to have come to a stand still, I am pondering on the future of my Mate.

Overall it still suites me fine, except I think it is too power hungry.
In reading up on the subject it seems that most of that is down to google play services.

I have also read that you can use apps from the play store by installing them from backups.

That makes me curious, could that be something for me?
Would that be as (sort of simple) as backing up the current rom after updating all apps installing the rom again without google apps.

Then install the rom fresh without gapps, put all apps back from the backup, and every now and then, make a backup, then put the old backup with gapps back, update all apps, backup again, but the non gapps rom back and then update the apps from the other backup?
