Im still on trinity sensation XL, I find it fast, stable and it has excellent battery life.
I like to have everything rock stable, and everything working properly, which is why im still on sense 3.5 since about December when I joined XDA and rooted my phone.
Next on my hit list are playground ics and Virtuous Primmodonna. Any suggestions and opinions as to which one people like better?

Also, I find miui and other aosp gingerbread roms a little choppy or something, for some reason I get the impression that sense is much smoother, especially on a custom sense 3+ rom

ICS AOSP works surprisingly good considering I always prefer GB Sense ROM in the past. Current state of Playground ICS is very positive. Twistedumbrella is very active and new build is almost daily. I strongly suggest you give it a try.

Thanks, I will have to give that a go soon
Does that mean flashing a new build like, every second day though?

Twistedumbrella got 6 builds for the past 10 days! And the latest build seems to finally fix the camcorder. Be warned, you'll be real busy!

How's the battery on playground? Does it have any issues that ice cold 7.2 doesn't have?

Why would you use it if battery life is bad?

Hi,

I tested some versions in the time :
  1. Stock ROM
  2. Virtuous Affinity
  3. Virtuous Quattro
  4. MIUI (unable to connect network, and some bugs)
  5. IceColdSandwich

I plan to test others like Primadonna when some issues will be corrected. And, why not try again a fully functionnal MIUI version. I'm looking too the Playground ICS.

I wanna stay on the ICS Roms ! ^^

After using IceColdSandwich for quite a long time and trying Virtuous Primadora, I finally got back to GB and Sense. I prefer Sense than AOKP or AOSP and even if I thought Virtuous Primadora was really stable and it had the best battery life I ever had, I missed the camera and went back to GB. I used Virtuous Affinity for a while, I liked it a lot but went to Trinity because it is more customizable. XxXPachaXxX finally made the ROM I wanted, Affinity with more customization : RunnyMede Xtreme v2. I'm using it since then.
