Default [Q&A][KITKAT roms Top Preview 2014]



well as i ve been saying we have many roms 4.4.2 with similar features but at same time different..so questions for users are:
  1. wich one is the best? --i cant say..its user choice for his needs.here you can see most features of each rom and choose.
  2. what makes this/that rom unique? --see screenshots and video reviews.
  3. wich bugs do they have? --report here some more or all you find.
  4. wich one haves more free ram? --see screenshots.
and so on..

i have choosen this roms,so users can say what they think and report bugs (if any) besides cm11 bugs.HDMI,video recorder laggy,stock web browser super laggy.
