    Why rush just let it come to you. I am hoping this "google edition" trend continues so that when it is time for me to update I will have more options to choose from. The device I am waiting for his a motorola google edition device (with competitive specs of course).

    It is all down to personal preference, but I highly recommend this phone. I am running the Cyanogenmod Nightlies, and it makes this phone the beez kneez. Might give this a shot too, see how it works.

    Well considering the leaked news about the One, alot of the things I've read today regarding the s4 is pointing me in that direction. Ever since I demo'd one at AT&T I pretty much made my decision, but with enws of the 32gb model and the One supposedly being released in Sept, all signs point me in the way of Samsung again. This Google edition ROM is just the cherry on top. I'll run the s4 stock rooted for a bit, but I wouldn't be surprised if I slapped this ROM on it in a matter of a few hours of owning it should I pick one up this week.

    So, for anyone who knows... quick summary of the advantages of the Google Edition ROM over the stock? I was going to keep running rooted and stock but if the PROS outweigh the CONS, then I might just do it. Haven't ROMed since the OG Droid!

    This is what is awesome about the development community and why I will not buy a device unless it can be rooted and will have dev support. Whether you like tw or the plain vanilla look their is a flavor for every one. A lot of the tw roms have better battery life, feels snappier, and out performs stock so those who want to keep tw for the features can still have a device that performs the way the expect it. I am personally running a tw rom (Skynote 9.2) because I prefer the features (ie s-pen) but I prefer nova launcher over tw.

    Wicked, have you tried the google edition roms yet?
