For this week’s AT&T Galaxy Note 3 ROM of the Week, check out “The S5 Experience” ROM.
Based on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat, The S5 Experience ROM brings you exactly what its name implies, bringing you everything that can be ported to the Note 3 from the S5 including S5 Settings UI, apps, and more.
Now, before we begin getting into the S5 features, let me point out that this ROM does have everything else in order, the ROM itself is much quicker than stock KitKat firmware, give you unlocked native Wifi Tether Hotspot out of the box, and comes with bloatware removed. Aside from the S5 stuff, I was actually impressed with performance and battery life on The S5 Experience ROM.
Now, getting into the S5 stuff, The S5 Experience ROM comes with a modded S5 launcher with shortcuts for both Swipe-Up and Swipe-Left, which you can easily choose your favorite apps to launch. The launcher itself boasts plenty of room with its 5×6 app drawer/home screen, which is probably my favorite grid size and will fit almost twice more apps. The Note 3 screen is HUGE, I have no idea why Samsung doesn’t implement this on stock ROMs but it’s on this ROM to make your life easier.
