Add Multiple User Profile Support on Your Phone

Sharing a tablet or phone isn't anything unusual. Phones very often serve as relaxation tools, or easy-to-use Internet terminals from which you can easily access the web and keep in contact with people you love.

If you are a frequent visitor here at XDA, you more than likely enjoy Android, and probably “stock Android” without all the crap OEMs or carriers like to add.

Some say that a device just now receiving Android 4.3 is rather late to the party, and that most users here much prefer AOSP-derived SENSE-less ROMs---and they just might be right.
