    I would wait for official. The custom M roms are only able to use open source drivers, the biggest impact of that is photo quality. Moto is historically quick with updates, I would hold off.

    I can wait for the official Moto update. It'll probably come next month, so it won't be long. 5.1.1 is working just fine for now.

    Motorola is already doing testing by pushing 6.0 builds out to small test groups so they are well on track it seems to get it pushed out fairly quick. I'd much rather wait for something official.

    I'm giving my mxpe time to see if it has a warranty issue before I root and rom. It's not about waiting for Marshmallow for me, it's about waiting to see if there's a problem to be fixed.

    No way I was waiting for official rom with the stuttering and microlags I was having scrolling in apps, some web pages, and on the keyboard. I came from a liquid smooth Oneplus One and was not going to put up with obvious performance issues.

    I'm running semi-stock 5.1.1 based modified factory rom with optimized kernel. Smooth as glass now.

    Nobody can tell me the factory software on this phone is smooth and lag free. If you think so, you either don't know what t look for or trying not to see it.

    The first lag free phone I've ever used. 7 years of Android phones and this is the first one that is finally completely smooth.

    I agree with john, I came from oneplus one running stock cm12 which was the smoothest phone I have to say I've had no lags or stutter anywhere in ui. My moto x style is not as smooth and there is stutter in app opening and sometimes going through settings menu. Pretty disappointing and I'm considering returning and getting a nexus 6

    I've had almost zero issues with any sort of stutter or lag other then going from the Google now screen to the home screen, which may be a bug to be ironed out in the first update the phone gets.

    I'd be more tempted to flash a rom if I knew it fixed the Lollipop battery issues. A friend of mine recently got a Nexus 5X after I recommended it to him to a cheap unlocked phone to do basic stuff on (talk, text, Facebook, etc) and he has having some of the same issues Lollipop has with battery power but his idle drain is great thanks to Doze. His cell standby goes crazy on a daily basis, with a good signal, and had gotten as high as 30% of the battery use and his battery life is 'meh' because of it.

    Suffice it to say since 6.0 doesn't solve the cell standby issue I don't even care about an official update from Moto; it won't fix the biggest and pretty much only issue I have with the phone. Hopefully Google can get it together for 6.0.1 or 6.1 and focus on fixing bugs instead of tossing band aids like Doze in and crossing their fingers.

    Also, I'm stock rooted and sticking with stock ROMs. No need for custom ROMs on this phone
