Performance is excellent. I was able to score near 29,000 on Antutu, that’s a whopping 30% improvement in performance over stock TouchWiz ROM and KitKat. Yes, Lollipop makes your phone almost as fast as a Note 3, AMAZING!
Installation is easy if you have CWM or TWRP recovery installed. First download the ROM for your model of Note 2 and Lollipop Gapps. Then reboot into recovery, format system, do factory reset, install the ROM, install Gapps, and reboot. That should get you booted the very first time.
Okay, it’s still not perfect by any means as it’s a development in progress but most of basic features of Android 5.0 Lollipop work flawless out of the box including cellular data, voice, NFC, bluetooth, and camera. With that said, if you want to run the latest Lollipop on your Note 2, give this guy a go and do let me know what you think!
