    I've always wanted to ask this. I have put as many "multi device" releases I can think of but there's the "i'll tell you in the comments" option.

    If you tell us in the comments, please provide what device you're using and a link to the ROM so other people with the same device who may be interested can check it out.

    I've always liked Android Revolution HD. mike1986 is the man.

    LiquidSmooth AOSP is a rocking, non Sense 6 Rom. Very fast, smooth, and highly customizable. Runs better than a Sense Rom and not as "heavy".
    If you're looking for a change from Sense, give it a try.

    Oops, totally forgot to include a link.

    If you're coming from a Sense Rom, don't forget to dl the Gapps as well. They're not included in AOSP Roms. That libel is also in the thread I linked.

    I have a GE 4.4.4 from Danvdh (i think that is his handle) I found on XDA for my S4. I had tried a few others but this one kinda stuck to me. Has alot of the stuff I wanted and alot of the stuff I didn't removed. Very smooth and I am getting over 2 days battery. Granted I do not have any social media or extra notificaitons set up, so that helps on the battery. But for the way I use my phone, it is perfect.

    EDIT: Guess I should have read more carefully. Here is the link I think. My work blocks XDA but I am pretty sure this is it.

    Trolling your polling.... :p I say Google's stock Android KitKat. (4.4.4 probably, but 4.4.2 was gentler on my battery.)

    As someone who still uses an old i9100, I've tried a few ROMs to keep my handset up to date (OMNI, MIUI, CM, and PA, are the ones I remember), but I seem to keep coming back to Paranoid Android, which I'm currently using as my daily driver.

    I also rate CyanogenMod very highly, but I haven't tried quite a few of the ones on your list, so I can't really say which is best overall.

    I used MINI with my HTC Inspire. The Sense Roms back then we're so very heavy & devoured your battery. Someone tiredness me onto MIUI. That was a wonderful Rom.

    I have used cyanogenroms, omniroms, paranoid android roms but they last only for a few.days.the things I like about a custom.rom is that thay have a modified camera app which is very different from stock.. I love stock rom with root

    I like Omni pretty well, but I think Carbon is the best.

    CM11, a bit common I know but all of the features combined make a super awesome ROM

    Have you looked @ LiquidSmooth? It's designed off CM11 but includes a lot of Kul extra tweaks. I like CM11 as week buy in enjoying more stuff..http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2472604

    Nope.
    I'm using Android Authority app and I don't see your device info. I'd attach a screenshot but I can't find that ability.
    I may delete this app because of that issue.

    Edit: Ok, I'm on Tapatalk now. Here a ss I see.

    Oh yeah, not sure why their app is so lacking in their forum section. Maybe they're working on it.

    Going off topic, how do you like the LG?
