Custom ROMs and larger, crisper screens were believed to be the two biggest reasons for users going for Android smartphones over others, like iOS-based offerings. With Apple having introduced larger screen sizes with iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus, the display quality is still lacking and more importantly, the OS remains closed unless painstakingly jailbroken. For those of our readers who cherish the possibilities of being able to customize their devices and enhance the overall performance (with a huge chance of things going the wrong way), we are putting together some of the best Android 6.0 and 6.0.1 Marshmallow based custom ROMs. Custom ROMs not only enable users to try out different tweaks and looks for their devices, but also offer the latest Android software earlier than the OEMs and carriers who are notorious for delaying Android updates.

While the Android 6 Marshmallow adoption rate doesn’t tell any surprising story as the operating system has always remained popular for slow growth. There are still hundreds of thousands of users trying out unofficial firmware being offered by developers. With Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow already released, it’s time to say hello to the Android 6 with a stable Marshmallow custom ROM designed for your Samsung, LG, HTC, and other Android devices.
