Cyanogen now supports more mid-range Android models

Cyanogen now supports more mid-range Android models
Cyanogen says on the company's blog that it has started supporting more mid-range Android handsets, such as the second-generation Motorola Moto E and third-generation Motorola Moto G. Both models will now support Cyanogen Mod 12. And for the first time since Cyanogen Mod 7, Huawei models such as the Huawei Honor 4, Huawei Honor 4X, Huawei Ascend Mate 2 and Huawei Snapto have Cyanogen support.

While more mid-range models will now allow you to enjoy the highly customizable ROM, Cyanogen says that it is still working on getting CM to work on flagships like the HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4. Meanwhile, the Korean version of the LG G3, the Samsung Galaxy S5 in Japan and China, and the HTC One (M8) Dual Sim will all work with the latest version of Cyanogen Mod. Such support even extends to a pair of Xiaomi models with the Xiaomi Mi 3w and Xiaomi Mi 4.

If your curious about whether your Android handset can run Cyanogen, take a peek at the Cyanogen Wiki. There, you will find photos showing the Android models both current and dated, that support Cyanogen Mod. A quick scan through the site brought back memories as we spotted the Motorola DROID BIONIC, the Samsung Galaxy Note II and the HTC One X.

Well although buggy and unpolished, this will truly benefit the low-end and midrange phones which seldom get official support. CM will also give better performance with the older/inferior hw
