Yes, I am referring to nightly builds. All I am saying is that CM updates their ROMs daily (which is the nightly branch), giving you a chance to keep up with the development daily.

Obviously you don't have to updated it daily, I'm assuming you will have the stable and testing branches which are, well, more stable.

For sure the phone will have a stable version that doesnt require to update daily, if thats what you mean. Personally i dont like everyday update on a STABLE ROM.

I can live just fine without LTE (I have good wifi coverage where I spend most of my time and HSPA+ isn't that bad either), but I would definitely require the price to be adjusted to reflect that fact.

This is what captivates me, there is much more to Cyanogenmod so you will really have to dig it (and preferably try it out yourself) to see what most appeals to you.

It will need to have LTE to interest me. Past OPPO products have not and hence not appealing to me despite their great builds.

Glad to see Cyanogenmod get more recognition. It's been empowering my original Galaxy S since the carrier stopped providing OS updates after Eclair, Froyo and Gingerbread. Cyanogenmod made Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean possible and there's already a preview of Kit Kat.

This one is set to be an HUGE success, specially with the announced pricing. Can't wait for it, eager to make the jump!

Just don't match the Nexus 5 camera and we will be ok :)
