Want to convert your Galaxy S4 into a Galaxy S6? If so, check out the S6 Port ROM by XDA user Albe95.
Based on latest Galaxy S6 SM-G920F Android 5.0.2 Lollipop firmware, S6 Port ROM brings you all the goodness of Lollipop and Galaxy S6 to your S4. You can install this on the international GT-i9505, T-Mobile SGH-M919, Canadian SGH-i337M, and AT&T SGH-i337 with unlocked bootloader.
Inside the S6 Port ROM, you will find a flawless S6 launcher with support for changing your grid size and the new Samsung theme engine (so you can get cool themes like Iron Man). With the latest theme engine, you will be able to download the latest Galaxy S6 themes on Samsung’s Galaxy Apps store and enjoy what S6 users are right there on your Galaxy S4.
As for performance, it’s actually pretty good, I was able to score near 30K on Antutu, which is excellent for the Galaxy S4. Battery life is also fairly good so you should have no problems using it as daily driver.
Of course, you can also get the latest Galaxy S6 camera. As far as regular auto mode, the camera works flawless out of the box for photos and videos. If you try to use any custom modes, you may get some force close errors but you do have the option of installing regular S4 camera in its AROMA installation settings.
What is a Custom ROM?
A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.
With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.
