Indotechboy — Now here it is the most advance ROM we have for now for our little Samsung Galaxy V Android phone with it's Android 7.1 Nougat in it, yep it is CyanogenMod 14.1 ROM. Yay! Our Samsung Galaxy V is lo lucky to have a taste of the Android 7.1 Nougat.

CyanogenMod is a custom ROM's (firmware) project based on Android Open Source Project ROM's, with extra contribution from the Android community. It is designed to increase performance and more prioritize to functionality and reliability.


Thanks again to the saviour developer of this ROM, CyanogenMod 14.1 or CM14.1 Custom ROM for Samsung Galaxy V SM-G313HZ is still developed by the same developer who brought us the previous CyanogenMod ROM's series for Samsung Galaxy V (check more on ROM info below). Big applause and unlimited credits to them.

Anyway, As my experience when using it CyanogenMod 14.1 ROM is something that will not give us high performance or fast as lightning or super smooth on our Samsung Galaxy V SM-G313HZ single core phone, with 512 MB RAM. If you want to increase the performance or say want to have it faster, you have to use your brain like. NOT install the Google Apps is one of the best way to made this CM14.1 ROM running faster on this phone.

But this ROM provide our little Android phone the latest Android 7.1 Nougat, so we lucky to get experience the Android 7.1 Nougat Operating System on this single core Android phone. Believe me, there are many Android smartphone with better specs out there that not so lucky like Samsung Galaxy V yet.
