I used to run CM nightlies but using ART it became a drag having to recompile all the apps every update. Now I use the M builds, stock kernel, stock clock speeds. It's fast, stable, and everything works how it should. I think I have animations set at .5x as well. Nope, .75x

I'd run AOSP, if it had a couple features that CM does.

I really like being able to change the color of the PhaseBeam wallpaper.
I really like being able to set the notification LED to a color and frequency of my choosing.
And the built in Torch app (I know it's available on the PlayStore) is a nice touch as well, and being able to set it as a drag from the bottom quick toggle.
The CM File Manager is great. Great application for those that don't want to pay for a file manager app that has root access capabilities.
And I love the cLock widget.
"Out of the box" LTE support is nice too.

Those things baked in to an AOSP rom and I'd be all over it.

I have the nexus 5 and my girlfriend has the n4. Hers will definitely be staying stock for stability reasons.

She is a former iPhone user who hated android. She only has the nexus because she decided to try bb10 and hated it and couldn't afford to get an iPhone again. Luckily she is happy with the nexus.

I have used both and I really believe that aosp based roms are superior in stability, wish in one way or another, lead to more speed in the not so long run. CM hast more features, I personally really don't care about them....

I reboot it once every week or two and saw one soft reboot the other day in the couple months I've had it, not sure what caused it.

Still trying to decide if its worth rooting and what ROM to run. I like art which rules out stock with xposed.

I've been a chronic ROM flasher on every phone I've had until this one. It just works so good I'm afraid to mess with it. Especially when I've got warranty.

If you like speed, velocity is the ROM. There are no gimmicky addons. Its all about the perfectly modified toolchains. So much faster than stock and 100 percent stable.

CM Nightlies are really stable for me. I haven't had any force close or random reboot, even on a custom kernel. As for speed, CM11 is speedier than AOSP-based ROMs. You can see it actually.

Seems to be the majority finding aosp faster. More likely to have placebo on cm since you would expect it to be faster.

People make the effort to flash and set up cm and then go back to stock rom.
