If you're sick of using TouchWiz and have no desire to use custom roms to customize your phone, then here is a pure AOSP (Android Open Source Project) rom that has been compiled straight from Google's sources without any modifications included such as the ones which you may find on projects such as CyanogenMod, AOKP, Carbon, Paranoid, etc. By using this rom you can see your Galaxy S4 mini as a Google Play Edition S4 mini or even a Nexus!

After testing the rom for a whole hour I have found no problems so far with its performance, stability and features. Considering that this is Android 4.4.4, you may even try and enable the ART runtime and give it a try for a day or two. You will be amazed by the difference in performance, boot time and app startup time.
