I have known about CyanogenMod for a long time and still haven't been able to decide if I should flash it or not. So, please help me in deciding whether to flash CyanogenMod or not.

Its better that you make a backup and try it for yourself to see if you like it or not.

It has the biggest support, but isn't the best with battery and smoothness

i am having 2gb variant, i used CM13 for 2 months,

Pros :
1)Gaming improved, ( i dont know what cm13 does .. but i can play many games without any lag -- ex : NFS nolimits, RealRacing3, Modern combat 5)
2) The UI is smooth .. and has faster and better Ram management than that of stock
3) Highly Customizable ( like all others )
4) Latest Gestures which are in G 2016 edition are also added
5) SUpport .. what ever your problem is, they are listening
6)Last but not least : Monthly Security Patches


1) as performance is boosted, Battery gets drained when we play any game ( if i play NFS no limits i get 2.5 hrs 100-5% battery)
2) No moto Display ( ambient is there, but i dont feel it convincing)
3) voLTE support in INDIA, i cant find it in CM13 .. so had to change to stock rom...

this is according to me..

Pros :
1. Can put butter on shame in terms of smoothness if properly used/customized.
2. Better memory management than other CM-based ROMs (for me).
3. Huge support, like how is ubuntu on pc.

Cons :
1. Moto Display is absent.
2. VoLTE issue, at least in India.
3. I love my cat more than cm (perhaps this should be a pros point !?)

You should install it for a few days and decide yourself.

I have never tried CM13, but the main reason I did not is I understand battery saving location does not work well.. But this is most likely not important to most users.
