I do have knowledge about the benefits and the nice add-ons that Paranoid, CM and etc brings, but I've been reluctant to make the change.
When I bought this phone months ago, I've quickly went into XDA to check the Original Androids, even before using the G2.
Every ROM I found back then had some "serious" flaw, like messed up camera (ported from N5), no quick-remote, bad battery life et al. So I just went on using the Stock G2 Android and guess what.. it's pretty nice. Fast and full of features.
I'm pretty comfortable with the CloudyG3 ROM right now, but I want to try something new.
Since my previous adventures with flashing ROM merrily were much time consuming, and I need this phone on working order 24/7, I'd like to hear your opinion regarding to changing from the Stock Android to a AOSP, CM Android. What do I lose? Does the quick remote still works? Is the camera as good as stock? Does the device gets faster or more battery efficient? What are the trade-offs?
