PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "With the Samsung Galaxy S4 presumably coming soon, many are excited about the possibility of running a more stock Android-based experience, like CyanogenMod, on the hardware. It looks like that's going to be a slower transition than many were hoping, as the current Samsung CM maintainers have said that they have no plans to support the device." If you like custom ROMs, don't buy Samsung. As simple as that.

It's quite a stretch going from the lack of CyanogenMod support for the Samsung Galaxy S4 to the advice "If you like custom ROMs, don't buy Samsung."
Nobody else is prevented from doing custom ROMs and CyanogenMod for other Samsung phones continues to work fine.

Perhaps by custom ROMs they meant to say AOSP ROMs or ROMs built from source as opposed totaking an existing stock ROM and de-bloating it.

CyanogenMod ran terrible on my T-Mobile Galaxy S3 even though Steve Kondik personally used the device.
Battery life was horrible and bluetooth didn't work.
I sold it for $400, got a Nexus 4 and couldn't be happier.
