Look at your available ram and tell me that this baby don't NEED 3gb of ram like the Note 3. WoW! Anyways, the more devs we all have the better if you think about it. Look how many roms and mods get ported over from different carrier variants. Yes, I am a crack flasher for sure. Glad to see you donate too though.

Right on best of both worlds.
I'm not seeing any performance difference M8/GS5 side by side both are sure performers except for M8 Radio radio , GS5 wins radio battle , battery life & water resistance is a +.
Yeah the ram thing hmm , I feel its being totally over hyped. Yes more is better but in reality not needed.
For those going huh heres a great read on ram - http://www.androidcentral.com/ram-wh...-shouldnt-care.
Yes yes more developers the better! This carrier lockdown crap needs to end , Only way that's going to happen is pressure manufactures go after them in social media blitz , That's what made HTC change their tune with Sprint EVO 3D.

I was thinking about eventually attempting to unofficially port an aosp Rom to our phone however there would not be support for any of the new s5 Hardware features. Those are pretty much the only things diffrentiating the phone from the s4.

Ya, that would kind of be a bummer in some areas but to be honest, the only features I would really be concerned about is the 16mp camera and possibly the fingerprint scanner. All of the other features are pretty "blah" to me... I would REALLY like to see a rom that had the settings menu that is like AOSP cause I literally hate the pulldown menus and navigating through all of the settings that I probably will never use. I am currently running your rom right now so thanks for the hard work you are putting in to that!
