I know there's much to be gained from using a custom rom but I'm just wondering what I will lose if go for an AOSP based rom like CyanogenMod?

I'm presuming things like the Samsung Camera app (is image quality affected?), Smart stay etc. What about Multi-Window, can I get that back?

No multiwindow, no camera (not last time I saw anyway), GPS issues I think, no smart stay, scroll, air view, air gesture, ultra power saving, smart pause, ripple lockscreen, finger print, toolbox and pretty much everything non hardware that makes your s5 an s5 and not a nexus.

Thanks for the info. Hopefully they'll get CM11 fully working soon. I was under the impression that you could sideload some apps like Multi-Window, is this not true?
