I want to buy a new smartphone and have 2 variants : s3 mini or lumia 630.
What to buy ?
1. S3 mini is good ?
2. How is cyanogenmod 11 vs stock ? Any battery drainage bug or something ?
3. Cyanogenmod 11 is fluence or laggy ? How is versus stock ?
4. Is good to buy this phone because i want to put cm 11 or isn't recommended ?

I ask this because i like s3 mini but i don't want a smartphone with lag (even with custom rom).
Thanks and many regards.

1. s3 mini is an excellent phone, but imo, better to spend a bit more and get a regular s3.
2. i prefer stock, i have not had lags since getting my s3 mini a few months ago. cm11, i tried on a friends s3 mini, and i did not like it at all- it was extremly laggy, it guzzled battery, and lots of things didnt work.
3.i cant tell you exactly, but i think you should go with a rom like slimrom or something if you dont want laggyness.
4. imo, best to skip cm11 and use a different custom rom, like omni or carbon.

you can go to the site novafusion.pl for info and rom downloads.

You can try S5Styled ROM from @galaxy mini It's much faster than the official firmware and looks exactly like the S5 does in many aspects

I couldn't and still can't get used to anything else other than Stock or Stock based custom ROMs!

To be honest, keep you money and buy the regular s3 or another phone. I recommend sony.
There is no official kitkat for this roms and cm11 from novafusion team somewhat buggy with clock freeze bug. Even to this day my clock will freeze. I change to AOSPA roms which totally awesome.
If you don't really care use modified stock roms but you will stuck in jellybean which i can say better to be basic.

If you shouldn't have decided yet: the Moto G LTE has recently gotten nightly builds, which work better than maclaws cm11 for i8190..
