Heads Up Notifications

It's not a big deal, but heads up notifications really help when you're playing games or watching videos etc. They don't interrupt with what you are doing and you can easily swipe them aside to get to them later.

On Screen Buttons of Capacitive Keys

You can go into Settings -> Buttons to turn on or off the on screen buttons. If you're coming from a stock Android smartphone, then this would be your choice. In addition, the Capacitive keys on the phone are turned off when you use on-screen buttons.

Camera App

While the camera app has some quite useful features, the ability to swipe to change modes is a good addition. You can simply swipe from top to bottom and the mode changes.

Themes

Themes are a big part of CyanogenMod's portfolio. You can go into the theme store and choose free or paid themes. What's good is that you can mix and match and have icons from one theme and wallpapers from another.
