What's the kernal for exactly? Better battery life?
Yeah you can set custom clock speed for the processor, I've seen some screenshots of 6 hour screen on time. And slowing down click speed won't make a different unless your playing graphic intensive games. That and I think you can recalibrate the screen to have more saturated colors which I like.

I don't know if i should bother with custom ROM's, pretty satisfied with stock ROM right now.


try catalyst = stayed true to stock with few added features for more convenience. no complaints so far. kinda want to try CM 11 nightly for the screencast feature for the hell of it.

I received my Nexus 5 just after christmas and it's awesome, but I find it has issues turning on. When I first got it I pressed down the power button a few times and then it finally powered up. Recently I had an issue where the flash wouldn't turn off from one of those flashlight apps, so I powered off the phone and then it wouldn't power on no matter how long I held down power, until I decided I would go home and plug it in to my laptop, then on my way home on the bus it just suddenly worked.

Anyone else have this issue?

No need for custom Roms.

1) Root your device.
2) Install Xposed Installer (Google where to get it, most probably XDA)
3) Add the features you want and keep everything stock.
