Hello,
My Rezound is unlocked and S-OFF. It currently has a Sense ROM on it from a year or so ago on it.

Getting a new phone and my 7 year old will be getting this Rezound to play games on (it has the extended battery). What ROM would be best for his use?

Thanks!

Try a kit Kat ROM such as everolv or liquid smooth, CM 11 if you want. If you want sense, try ecliptirez I think it is? It's a great sense 4 ROM. Just depends, do you want sense or AOSP?

Thanks for your feedback. I have no need for Sense so can do without it. For my son I'm looking for something decently stable and with very good battery life (for a Rezound , anyway). It'll have wifi off almost all the time and no cell service. Bluetooth will not be used. He will just use it to play games. Thanks for any suggestions on advance!

Evervolv, CM11, or any vanilla ROM should be fine... I would avoid feature rich ROMs like LiquidSmooth, Carbon, Tachyon for this application (they are great for roms for use as a phone)

Agreed with @acejavelin they're great ROMs. Look into them. Mainly as ace said try everolv.

Cm9 was probably the fastest I've seen this device, anything ics based will have smooth graphics and better battery life

Stick with Sense or as bunchies said, cm9. Personally I'm running ConROM v6, which is basically stock rooted.

If you need something more up-to-date, go with CyanogenMod 10.1.3 (not 10.1.3.1) since it's the fastest and most stable JB/KK ROM still. 10.1.3.1 has a crash in the Settings app and nothing really changed.
