Ya, I know there are a variety of ROMs to try. I'm trying to keep tinkering time to a minimum. Too many other things occupying my days with higher priority. Maybe I'll just leave it stock and call it a day.
I would be slight irritated to not have interface consistency as I go from device to device every say 18 months or so. I suppose if that were a primary concern though and I wanted to reduce tinkering, I should be getting a Nexus. Give me a Nexus 4 with 32GB and LTE, and sure I'll get one.
On the ROM's, my primary concern isn't going to be best features/functionality, it's going to be stability and longevity. I guess from stability standpoint, the no-brainer choice is "cleanrom?" Everyone loves CM10 but I always see the word "bugs" in the same paragraph. I suppose in 3 years, "Sense" could look totally different anyway. So I'm probably splitting hairs here.
