How to Convert your Note 3 into S6 Edge! [DarkLord S6 ROM]

Can’t wait to try out the new features on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge on your Galaxy Note 3?   Well, we have good news for you as you can install DarkLord S6 ROM on your Note 3 and essentially get all of the software features of S6 Edge!

Based on S6 Edge firmware, the DarkLord S6 ROM is a TouchWiz-based Android 5.0.2 Lollipop custom ROM that gives you all of the latest S6 features like new TouchWiz theme engine, S6 floating messages, S6 Smart Manager, S6 launcher, S6 dialer/contacts, and much much more.  In fact, there’s even menu for People Edge and Edge lighting but they won’t work since the Note 3 does not have an edge screen.

Of course the best part?  You can get the S6 Edge camera on your Note 3, which allows you to try out some of the new camera features of S6 and S6 Edge.  Not everything is working though so be aware but you can also switch back to the Note 3 camera by using AROMA installer if you have problems.  For taking basic photos and videos, it seems to be working fine although I had hard time getting manual focus mode in Pro mode.

Other than that, the ROM itself has pretty good performance and battery life, comparable to a Note 3 stock Lollipop ROM.  If you like trying new things and want to have the S6 Edge features, definitely take this guy for a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
