What is the custom rom support on this? I'm not a big fan of touch wiz and I've read on XDA that there are only two really good ones for this phone. Let me know what you guys think. Thinking of upgrading from HTC one m8 to this.

rmns, 07 Aug 2015Many reasons are there... 1. Both have sexy luck. 2. G3 has a better cam(Alpha also does...... morebut i rather recommend s5 than g3 because g3's screen resolution is too big and it weighs gaming performance greatly(benchmark result of g3 is also relatively low for high end device) WHILE s5 has Same cpu chipset, lower screen resolution(snapdrogon 801 lose performance(mostly gaming) in screen resoution higher than Full HD, g3 have Quad HD) and it's waterproof
This isn't possible that your device is lagging bcoz of lollipop update notification. Cause of lagging might be due to other sources like the Buggy Apps that you may have recently installed etc.
As i too have the Lollipop update notification but i didn't upgrade yet as Kitkat is just flawless.
if you don't want to upgrade do one thing Go to Settings > About Device > Software update & untick Auto Update & wi-fi Only options.
Hope it help.
