Note 2 Stock Roms On and Offtopic
Hello everyone! I started this because I noticed there aren't many threads regarding this topic, at least not many that compact questions and answers regarding stock roms.
First things first, I come from a Galaxy S1 and let me state the obvious: this phone is absolutely amazing not necessarily by comparison but by overall quality. Coming from the S1 let me say it was imperative for me to flash a custom Rom (CM rules!) because Sammy just wouldn't update the phone after the S2, stuck with GB, and frankly the phone just didn't cope in matter of hardware. So
anyway I was just "forced" to flash a custom Rom just to have a real smartphone experience. When I bought the note2 I really was prepared to flash CM as a necessary and natural requirement. But after a short period with the stock Rom I had a change of mind. Even though I had 4.2.3 on the s1, I really didn't mind the downgrade, because simply the overall experience with the Note2 was simply amazing. Fluid, fast, and great battery life by comparison (I am a heavy reader on my phone).
What I am really trying to say is I 'm pro for updates and new features, but after 2 years of flashing custom roms, I must say that at the end of the day all I want is a quality phone experience. Some people might say that doesn't apply to everyone because some people like performance or just like the notion of creating a custom experience... I totally understand and agree but at the same time I guarantee that most people (including me after 2 years of flashing) just want a stock experience with the expectancy of support from their brand maker in terms of present and future features.
Sorry for having such a large personal offtopic. I would really like fo this thread to be about Q/A regarding stock roms.
First question I would really appreciate to know is, being a new user of this phone, what stock rom do you think works best and whether anyone is using a stock different from their region for better performance/signal/etc.
