Went out to get the wife a phone yes'de with a list of either the Xaiomi Mi4, Oneplus one, Meizu MX4 which are all high spec low cost handsets, and I considered the HTC M8 and the Samsung S5. After trawling shops for a few hours and juggling bullshit from sales assistants who generally know nothing, it became apparent that if I want 4G LTE, it's the Samsung or nothing, which was actually the last one in my priority list.
Anyway, I have a G2 which I am so comfortable with, the OS is balanced and looks 'right', when I use the samsung, the tweaked OS just doesn't feel right to me and its annoying.
I dunno if I'm just being an ass, but what are you guys doing with customisation?
I'm happy to flash it with a stock OS, but relying on Google apps is a pain at the moment as the Chinese government is blocking or throttling all google services (including translate FFS!) so its probably not the best option to go full G.
