    "This seems to be the perfect product for my Android phone. It has a high level of customization and seems to have a great deal of content embedded into the app. I like the idea of it having everything and saving memory on my phone so multiple ROMS aren't required. "

    ""Server over quota" But based on the description: This is exactly what someone with this problem would need. It's a custom fork of the original android distro so it can be modded exactly how you want."

    "The AOKP project is a great solution if you're looking for a new way to play around with your Android phone. The support is great and it provides an alternative for that probably adware laden base image that came with your phone. It's pretty easy to use, as far as these things go, but not for people who are uncomfortable with tech."

    "It can be hard to find a custom Android ROM in the sea of never ending iterations. Lucky for you, you don't have to search any farther because Paranoid Android is here. Paranoid Android gives you more customizability than just about any other ROM out there today. Not only that, but it runs on just about any Android phone that exist."

    "MIUI is a very beneficial concept from XIAMOI. It seemed for a long time that people were clueless concerning updates and differences in using devices that weren't exactly alike. MIUI has simplified the operating system and updates are very easy to deal with. "

    "CopperheadOS is the next-generation hardened android distribution, for those people amongst us who have need for a high-security smart phone. As we all know, there are latent bugs in just about everything, but CopperheadOS [COS for short] attempts to work around these by hardening the Linux kernel and also hardening the user space. It is really the best operating system based on android in terms of safety and security."

    "I wanted a new OS. Chrome and Firefox are good, but wanted something different. SilentOS for Android isn't as pretty or feature-heavy, but it is much more private. With all the privacy laws and whatnot making it easier to get spied on, this is a big help"
