We say almost, because it’s actually loaded up with CyanogenMod 11S. the CyanogenMod team has earned the praise of hardcore Android fans for taking stock Android and injecting it with customisation steroids, letting users tweak everything from status bar icons to deep theme integration.
Even more recently Google has updated its camera app, adding in the “Lens Blur” feature – something which seems to be finding its way onto all the flagships in 2014.
