Totally disagree. New ICS roms like StockPlus are faster than Gingerbread, far more functional, smoother and responsive. That's just my opinion, and we're all entitled to one. I cannot understand why anyone would recommend staying on GB on a G400.
That's actually not true. Even me, I would never think about going back to GB, I love jellybean, but I can admit GB is so much more responsive and fast. I know this as my friend also has a G300, but he is running stock GB from out of the box, non rooted or anything like that. I have compared both his and my phone together, and his phone usually had much better speed, especially with another launcher. I can't even play temple run 2 on my device, but with GB he can play it perfectly.
If you need something done, it just happens. ICS and JB are guaranteed to give you slow downs at least once. While the newer ROMs are very functional, GB is faster and it gets the job done.
So overall, if you are a newbie, you want a fast, lag free, random reboot free, straight-to-the-point ROM, GB is the on for you. If your like me and others on the forum who enjoy hacking and modding, and are happy to have the latest software even if it means a slow device, get ICS or JB.
Actually to be honest, JB is very smooth but has less than average battery, so I guess JB might be suitable too if you don't mind charging 4 times a day
Hopefully this will help someone out, though I sure someone will protest against this
