Wrong section ask in Q&A.

Read the rom description and see if there is anything you are interested in

If you have ask, then I'd say no. A rom is not worth it. If you do your homework instead, then you would already know the answer!

first i know its wrong section and this will be likely closed rather than moved but anyway.
installing a rom is you choice, i dont have the s5, but if i had i would do so, dude on this soc, this thing lags while scrolling lists and changing homescreens (wtf?) and animations are normally choppy (i used one for about a week). also i dont like touchwiz ui, for me, touchwiz only in note series.(but i would keep in mind a custom stock, since some features are usefull, and the camera app is really good)

Nexus 5 / Red / 16gb (D821)
New Nexus 7 wifi / Black / 32gb - Android 4.4.4 stock

If going custom wasn't really worth it, we wouldn't have had XDA. This places exists for the sole reason that someone somewhere thought that his device could do that extra mile, just with a little tweaking. We would have never reached 5.6 million members here if people did not agree to that sentiment.

However, to each their own. If you are happy with your current setup, there is nothing wrong with that. Stay stock or stay custom, the choice remains yours.
