Default [Q] Best stable 4.4 ROM for Xperia S Regular use

I've been using PAC Man 4.2.2 rom and then switched to CM10.1 4.3 ROM.
Am a regular and heavy phone user .. I was away from these forums for sometime and now i need to know the best 4.4 ROM which i can use. I know HDMI & FM will not work but atleast rest all key features should work. Kindly suggest.

You can go for v5 of Carbon ROM. It is smooth and very suitable for daily use. Note, I'm saying v5 as v6 has many bugs. Or if You can wait, The Developer is soon going to release next version which will sort out bugs of v6.
Pressing the is appreciated!

Default Carbon Rom!

Carbon Rom is very good! Still WIP but stable enough for daily use!

Both are having some issues currently. v7 has random boots and some ui freezes. v8 is very smooth but has problems with video players, none of them (mx player, vlc,etc ) work. Although the default video player works fine. And there is a constant call waiting sound while being on call even though there is no call waiting. The Developer has the solution for the false call waiting sound issue and will fix it soon.

I personally love Carbon ROM. But, as the v8 has the bugs, i am looking forward to next version. If it can get rid of the bugs, It'll be golden. Right now I am using PureSlim-KitKat R1(4.4.2). You can flash it. I haven't seen any bugs yet. Nice and Smooth. Best for daily use. You can play some games too!

If you love kitkat on your XS like me, I'll say, try it once.
You Have Your Xperia S Charged, Right?
