Thanks to developers and Custom Support, you don’t need to have a latest smartphone to enjoy the features of latest Android Version. There are lot of phones which has good specs but the manufacture doesn’t support them anymore. Without supporting a Android device is nothing more than a simple phone where you can perform main actions like sending messages, calling, browsing on internet and other actions like this.
Even though the Manufacture doesn’t support a device anymore, it doesn’t mean that developers will do the same. They still create Custom ROMs, which sometimes can be better than the stock ROMs when it comes to performance and features. You may have heard that Nexus 4 has received Android 5.0 Lollipop Oficially but this hasn’t stopped developers to create Custom ROMs based on Lollipop, with all it features and much more. In our case, the CyanogenMod team has released the latest version CyanogenMod 12 based on Lollipop for Nexus 4.
CyanogenMod is the most popular and the best Custom ROM you can find around the internet. CyanogenMod has its own community and developers which seem to have done a great work in this ROM. The support is also the best you can find. Since there are many developers in creating a ROM, chances for it to have an error are smaller. Once a new bug or something else goes wrong with the ROM, developers fix it very soon through updates.
CyanogenMod 12 based on Android Lollipop is the latest ROM announced by the CyanogenMod team and it is availabe for a huge number of devices. It is also available even for Nexus 4. You may be wondering why to install a Custom ROM, when you can easily install the official update. The answer is very simple. A Custom ROM run smooth, faster and it has many features and optimizations that the stock ROM doesn’t have, since developers want to have a smartphone running faster and with many optimizations.
