    Samsung's had a rocky relationship with Android developers. Sometimes it seems like the company is a strong proponent of the custom ROM community, while other times its actions (or lack thereof) make life a headache for developers trying to maintain software for its products. Last fall, the company had to practically be dragged kicking and screaming in order to consider releasing needed Exynos documentation, and it doesn't look like the community has forgotten just how difficult Samsung can be. Now, with the Galaxy S 4 about to land, rumors have started flying about that there won't be a ...

    Over the past several days we've shown you CyanogenMod 10.1 running on the Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and even the Samsung Galaxy S III. These were official "nightly" builds, straight from the CyanogenMod team. Nightlies, as you likely know, are works in progress. They have known bugs in them. They are not feature complete. They haven't been tweaked and polished. They are, however, sometimes stable enough for use as a daily driver -- at least if you're one of the more adventurous among us. What about older devices? Where's the love for them? Even Google has cut off Jelly Bean support for their ...

Some people love the Touch Wiz user interface that ships with the SGS3, some people hate it. We had to knock a few points off it's score in our full review due to some frustrating behavior in the launcher and the horrible email client that Samsung included. Some of Samsung's built-in apps were extremely useful, while others were cheesy after the novelty wore off. ...

    The Nexus 10 is the newcomer to the Nexus family, as such it's been very near to the top of the CyanogenMod list to receive some custom ROM goodness! Nightly builds of CM10.1 are coming regularly, though, as you should expect, they're not perfect -- not yet. The nightly we tested was fast, stable, and benchmarked fairly well. It was faster in Quadrant but slower in Geekbench, when compared to the stock ROM (stock scores are noted in parenthesis). Quadrant: 5213 (4193) Geekbench 2: 2423 (2454) Most of the CM goodies have been applied, though some Trebuchet settings didn't seem to apply ...
