You don't wanna know.....
I'm actually still quite happy with my S4, waiting to see what lollipop will do to it! ;)
However my gf's phone is pretty broken already, so thinking about an upgrade, giving her my S4, and the OPO 64GB Sandstone Black is definitely high on my radar.
On the other hand I might be able to get a S5 on the cheap via a company contract, so I'm wondering how much the OPO is, in euros, including shipping and stuff?
Wait for Galaxy S-6......it's gonna rock the world....so they say....:p

Have a look at the Five Best Android Phones: 2014 Edition. Do you see the S5 anywhere ;)

Good point, thanks for sharing your valuable opinion.

At normal retail prices I would not hesitate for a second and go for the OPO!
However since I might get the S5 for like 1/4 of the regular price (subsidized via a company contract) and the "features" I care about (good screen, camera, community support) are about the same for both phones I guess I won't be able to take you up on your offer and might go with the S5 nonetheless.

i'm lucky to pay only 5 € for the shipping :p

I would go for the ONePlus Twelve :D
...or "NotEqualTwo" :p

for me, the nexus phones and oneplus one are the 'developer' phone which you can root or unlock the bootloader freely without losing the guaranty.
sony phones are also good, but you need to register your IMEI to unlock the bootloader which might burn the guaranty.
samsung phones are also my favorite because of its display and its color contrast. imo, no phone's display can beat samsung till now. the disadvantages of the samsung phones are on the knox (losing guaranty by rooting) and exynos chipset (lack of support).

I was just kidding, I'm sure the S5 is a great phone.
If only they dropped Knox :eek:

Sorry for little off-topic: How can I detect, whether a selected device is "caf" (Code Aurora Forum) or not caf?
I see a message on SlimRoms.net "Note: Rebuilding as 8.12.1 due to sensor problems on none caf devices", but can't find out, whether my devices are caf.
Especially I'm wondered in I9505, I9100 (SGS2) and mako (Nexus 4).
Sorry for my bad English.
the easiest way for me to tell whether a device caf or non-caf device is by looking the slim.depencies. if you find the word 'caf' in it, then it is a caf device. not 100% sure, but 99% :p

I'm on latest official weekly. I is as good as always :) I'm trying CM12 from @AntaresOne from time to time, but it's an aerly alpha, and can't be used as a daily driver for now. Very fast and fluid though :)

    SlimSaberKat
    Unofficial SlimKat build - Alucard kernel
    Rom built with SaberMod 4.8.4 toolchain
    Kernel built with SaberMod 4.9.2 toolchain
    Fast, smooth and stable


    I proudly present SlimSaberKat.
    SlimSaberKat is built from SlimKat source with SaberMod 4.8.4 compiler and "JustArchi's ArchiDroid Optimizations" V3 build optimisations like O3, strict aliasing and many more to make the ROM even faster and smoother. If you want to see all optimization flags set for building this ROM, have a look a look at this commit, line 73-83.
    I could cherry-pick some commits ahead from SlimRom team or patches from other repositories if I find them useful.

    If you want to know more about build optimization and the build flags used to build SlimSaberKat I can advise you to read this post by @JustArchi.

    SlimSaberKat ROM comes with Alucard's great AOSP kernel.

    I will follow the weekly and stable builds of the official ROM and if there are interesting commits I will try to make a midweekly build.

    Disclaimer
    I'm not responsible for any damages on your device.
    Please don't discuss these "unofficial" builds in the official SlimKat thread.

    Installation instructions
    Coming from an older SlimRom (< 4.4.2) version or another ROM to 4.4.x:

    Coming from previous SlimKat (official or unofficial) build:

    No need to re-flash gapps it will be restored back automatically during flashing (also see FAQ)

    F.A.Q

    No root
    Q: I did a clean flash and don't have root access.
    A: Rood access is disabled by default on SlimKat. you need to enable it in "Developer options" set root access for Apps and ADB.

    New gapps
    Q: There is a new gapps version, how do I flash it.
    A: Minor gapps updates can be flashed on top off the old version. For major updates it's often recommended by the Slim team to wipe the systems partition and flash ROM and gapps. Alternatively you can deleted system/addon.d/80-gapps.sh or 81-aio_gapps.sh and flash ROM and gapps. This prevents the old gapps to be restored during ROM flash but will allow you to keep all other custom scripts in the addon.folder.

    Removed system files
    Q: I have removed a couple of system apps, do I need to do that again after every dirty ROM flash.
    A: A dirty ROM flash will restore all the ROM's system apps.You can however use a script to remove whatever you want from the ROM when you dirty flash a ROM. See this and this post on how to do that and many other cool things you can do with those scripts.

    DPI settings
    Q: How can i change the DPI and what's the original S4 stock DPI.
    A: DPI Settings are not included in the ROM yet, until then you can use Texdroider DPI. Default Stock DPI is 480.

    New kernel flash
    Q:I flashed a new Alucard kernel (or SlimSaberKat with new kernel included) and now not everything is working as expected.
    A:This can happen when the kernel settings options are changed (in Ramdisk), to correct this delete the "data/.alucard" folder and reboot. That will reset your kernel setting.

    Dalvik to ART
    Q: How do I switch from Dalvik to ART, how do I do it.
    A: As with every major change, start by making a backup, the follow this tutorial by @Jimsilver73

    SlimKat stock kernel
    Q: Where can I download the SlimKat stock kernel
    A: It can be found here, thanks to @hawkerpaul

    Tips and tricks

    • If you want to make Slim even Slimmer @s3icc0 made an overview of apps that are safe to remove

    • To make you're phone feel even faster consider lowering "Windows animation scale", "Transmission animation scale" and "Animation duration scale" in Developer options. Also if you are using Nova Launcher you might want to increase the Scroll and Animation speed.

    I know a lot of you have been waiting to have Lockscreen Notifications (LSN) in the ROM.
    I made a first test build with LSN integrated in the ROM.

    Features:
    - Pocket mode turn screen on when phone is pulled out of pocket and turn it off when phone gets back in pocket
    - Hide low priority notifications
    - Hide non-clearable notifications
    - Allow dismissing even non-clearable notifications from lockscreen
    - Just turn screen on when there's currently a notification pending
    - Toggle between expanded and normal notification view by longpressing
    - Wake on new notification
    - Configure notification count displayed at once
    - Privacy Mode: Hide notifications content on secure lockscreen.
    - Blacklist apps
    - Show all/dismiss all button, does not dismiss on going notifications, they must be swiped away
