I rooted my device, I also installed CM11 4.4.4 but i didnt like the interface so reverted to the stock ROM. On XDA forums read that CM12 is released but its quite unstable. Also the developer lost his phone so the ROM development is now stopped. Day before yesterday there is a new ROM released Resurrection Remix but this is also unstable. If you have installed some stable ROM please let me know.

Hello. Is the XSP still a good buy if I buy it today? I'm considering buying a new phone within the month. A new phone for the new year. Thanks to those who will provide input. I'm looking at the XSP due to its form, LED strip and price. I do casual gaming, email, web browsing, evernote and of course sms and calls.
@RAGNAROCK First tell me ur device is rooted or Not ? For CM based lollipop ur device should be rooted
the gr8 cell phone i have ever used .. still using it since last 2 years..
Have had this phone for 18 months now. I have to say that unfortunately it's the worst phone I've ever had. It's extremely laggy (yes I run a cache cleaner/memory cleaner/task killer and everything else that seems necessary on Android), all of the paint on the aluminium chassis/bezel peels off with the slightest touch (I've always had a case on it though so it would be completely devoid of paint if I'd hadn't had a gel case). The camera is just horrifyingly bad indoors, but is better outside, although still suffers with noise. The screen is awful - the viewing angles are so bad it's like trying to read a calculator screen at 45 degrees. LCD is just not cutting it against OLED now, and the battery drains quicker than my shower's plughole. It's put me off Android for life as well - after the first update the LED notification bar didn't work anymore (unless you unlocked the phone - bit pointless then!) but a subsequent update now allows it to flash (white only when locked although you could previously set different colours for different contacts etc.) Is actually really annoying as your bedroom looks like a disco at night if you get an Email - it actually wakes you up it's so bright, and the internal memory is so small you have to be really choosy about what you install (two good games and that's it). A memory card is 100% necessary if you want to put music on this thing. I've just changed to the Lumia 920 and it's such a relief - it's fantastic.
anyones has tried using dualshock 3 controller when playing games? any feedback how it is on GTA and max payne?
I've been using this phone for awhile now,. All i can say about this phone is wonderful.. Why?? Because the performance is great.. No lag..let us admit that the camera is not that good and no more updates for it.. Their might be a reason why it did not update to kitkat even though it is capable for it.. Because before they release it they need to test it and see results.. But above all else it is great.. To all the user cry and troll and say bad staff about this phone just move on.. Cheers people have a happy new year
