For this week’s HTC One ROM of the Week, check out LiquidSmooth ROM, available for both original HTC One M7 and the new HTC One M8. (BTW, this is my daily driver on my M8!)
Based on latest Android 4.4.4, you will get blazing speeds, great battery life, and countless number of great customization options. I know some of you swear by GPE (Google Play Edition) but GPE has hardly any customization/shortcuts you can do compared to something like LiquidSmooth ROM.
The latest version of LiquidSmooth seems to run super smooth and also even comes with custom kernel for those of you with M8. Everything runs fast and smooth out of the box, you will also enjoy the latest Google Camera working great/fast including PhotoSphere, LensBlur and Panorama.
Inside LiquidSmooth Settings menu, you will be able to easily add shortcuts which include a multitude of choices with App Circle Sidebar (my favorite), PIE Controls, Gesture Anywhere, Shake Events, custom Ring targets, and fully-customizable navigation bar. It sickens me to run any stock Android anymore as lack of shortcuts makes it much less efficient than a ROM like this one.
For notifications, you will get a load of options like HALO, HOVER, Active Display, and even Lockscreen notifications. In fact, Google likes Lockscreen notifications so much that they are adding it to the next Android 5.0. You don’t have to wait that long, just enjoy it now with LiquidSmooth ROM.
Overall, LiquidSmooth ROM is a nice combination of performance and customization options on the latest Android 4.4.4. Don’t be left out in the dust with stock/Sense ROMs, definitely check out this ROM over the week(end) and do let me know what you think!
