    That white UI is ugly.
    Not having a dark UI and the lack of customization are a deal breaker for me.

    Doesn't a white background use more battery than black theme?

    I will probably stay with KK for now and occasionally flash to L just to try out any improvements.

    5.0 is a not for me, what I have seen of it so far.

    KitKat for sure!

    12 hours SOT with KitKat, I'm not gonna trade that with some ugly Lollipop. Yeah they probaly will get new theme for Lollipop or that already exists, Im sure about that but the interface is still terrible compared to KitKat.

    I would be happy if they basically just give us KitKat interface on Lollipop and then improve the memory and battery.

    Now, they improved memory part but battery was much worse. Not a good trade there in my opinion!

    Since L version is so new and I am seeing a lot of issues reported I am bit worried for L now.
    On the other side, I love new things and for what I saw on Nexus 7 II, that OS is remarkable. I really do like it. And team, who is developing CM for OPO can make it work! So let's wait for L :)

    How is camera performance on lollipop?Since I use the Nova launcher I'm pretty close to the material feel in key areas, and if the camera performance is worse on lollipop I'll just stay in the stone age thank you :p

    Battery drainage alone will kill any ROM for me. If really as you said, I would happily stick to KK.

    I am on CM12 Nightly now. And it is giving me a decent battery support with Boeffla Kernel.
