    Both OS fall short but for different reasons.... much of it actually due to Google's Lollipop, but with both Cyanogen's and OnePlus' hype machines in full effect, I expected better.

    There's nothing I can see wrong with Oxygen except that it's so vanilla, it stands no chance of cementing OnePlus a place in the mobile market. Vanilla can be great but an OEM vanilla will NEVER EVER EVER outsell Nexus. Why wouldn't you go to the source for your vanilla experience.... and the source isn't selling that well either. If you can't beat Nexus' miserable sales numbers, and you don't have Google's bank account to fall back on..... well you see my point. Motorola has come closest to being a successful vanilla vendor, but they're not entirely vanilla and they're not entirely successful.

    As for Cyanogen OS 12, well it's mostly vanilla but with some previously noteworthy features that got trashed by Lollipop.

    Really not trying to just bash Cyanogen and Oxygen. In fairness, I haven't seen a version of Lollipop that I really did like. Either way, I'm done with my OPO. Back to my Note 4. I'll check out the next one and hopefully they'll have something in Oxygen that makes it stand out against the Nexus.

    All Right.... Calm Down. Don't need crazy talk here. Why such hate that you have to use the i-word? CM people are better than Oxygen people..... blah, blah, blah. Can't we all just agree that we are all better than iphone people.

    I agree. It totally defeats the purpose of having an Android device.

    Did not think i was going to say this, but as a long time CM user...... i really dislike CM12 for various reasons. I have gone Oxygen, and even though it needs some additions to it, it is so smooth and fast..... really enjoying the vanilla experience.

    Oxygen OS definitely, I really don't care about extra features but gaming and honestly something is not right with CM12S (same happens with any CM version), some games simple don't run smoothly.

    Exactly. In my experience, it is the most fluid, quick and smooth ROM, to date for the 1+, from KK to various LP's out there.

    It's like butter on meth.

    Going back to Oxygen. It just feels smoother and slicker than CM12. Didn't see any compelling reason to stick with CM12. The lack of a data toggle was the straw that broke the camel's back.

    CM12S is a buggy PoS. Phone rebooting and locking up ...
    Oxygen has battery issues, but otherwise stable. Oxygen it is...
    Considering the state of Cyanogen and OPO, I doubt we'll ever see regular/ reliable support for CM going forward.

    It is. I had it. Used the script fix. That seemed to do the trick.

    how so?

    I can do what i have done on CM11s/CM12 on Oxygen. The bloat on CM12 is ridiculous. You soon appreciate Oxygen's slimmer workings and how it allows you to choose what apps you want to fill the gaps.

    I figure that only those whom have experience with Oxygen will pick up on this. Still there's a long way to go to thoroughly test CM12

    Oxygen so far is in the lead IMO.

    CM12s seems to consume more battery as compared to Oxygen OS. I feel Oxygen OS is best for OPO.

    Clearing google play services data solved the issue for me.

    I did not know nothing about c12, I just googled for update to see if oxygsn has any update and I found that there is a totally new os ...
    For about a week I use oxygen and it has been more then just good... No errors like I had with every one version of cyanogen... I had such screen issues. Locking screen issues, WiFi not opening issues, and every other well known issues...
    But still we can tell that we had a very good update support, even on my galaxy s5 I am still having 4.4.2 or so, and battery on s5 is just awful...
    But on oxygen for just a week still did not have any problem and I think that battery works much better then on c11...
    But still I have that hunger for trying the new so I think I will check c12 and let see what does it offer and if it is issue free just for once
