For this week’s Note 2 ROM of the week, check out Slim Kat ROM, available for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, GT-N7100, and GT-N7105 variants.
I have been using Slim ROMs (same developers) for awhile since they had ROMs for the Galaxy S2. Their focus has always been on a “slim” ROM, just as the name implies. In fact, their default DPI (dots per inch) is lower than stock settings, which results in bigger resolution screen (or at least to the eyes).
Having such a feature on my Galaxy S2 wasn’t too pleasant as my screen was too small. Although there was a way to change the DPI back, I just felt that was just asking too much for the average Joe. But, in my recent testings with Note 2 and Note 3, I found it enlightening, it made my screen bigger, I could fit more apps into my homescreen/app drawer, just made more sense on a bigger-screen device. Of course, you can do this on any custom ROM but I find it handy that there’s a custom ROM made just for that and works out of the box.
