    Default Suggest me a good ROM for Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9500 (Exynos variant)

    I'm trying to save this device from being thrown into the trash as it has all it's internal hardware in perfect working condition. Fixed the 4th time broken glass from a local repair shop, changed the midframe through some aliexpress magic. Now it looks almost brand new, minus the power button which I somehow broke off while reassembling. But who needs a power button....

    Anyways, now I need a good ROM, hopefully AOSP based to replace this horrible horrible touchwiz. Samsung left the EOL firmware to Lollipop 5.0.1 which is in my opinion the buggiest android version I've ever used. And touchwiz is simply ugly. I've been browsing through XDA for past few days. Looks like all CM and GearCM based ROMs has this Audio HAL issue that makes skype/whatsapp/viber calls silent. Anyone knows any good ROM that can be used as daily driver without any crippling bugs?

    Saw one at XDA, didn't know they are on official MIUI site. Looks like kitkat based. Will try it out if I run out of marshmallow and lollipop options. Kitkat should have better battery life I think.
