Anyone loving the design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 but would prefer having a more personalized operating system can choose to install a custom ROM on the device. Sammy doesn’t care if people install a different ROM on the device and they understand that the ROM they pump out of the factory is not for everyone.
Custom ROMs are aftermarket firmware and are generally considered better than the stock firmware. Custom ROMs are commonly installed by geeks to create better performance or to change the features. Additionally, some people prefer a new ROM that comes debloated and without the Samsung system apps that many people refer to as bloatware because they do nothing for the end user but create a slower device.
These are the best custom ROMs for the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphones:
