Wheever I'm working on a large community site I look for the following:
1. Does it have the ability to draw a DB from a pool?
2. Does it have the ability to use Memcache?
3. Will the code scale?
If you're looking to use something out of the box, you may have the wrong idea. No matter what framework you want to go with, you're going to need certain tools.
PHP sites are capable of handling millions of users a day. It's an extremely fast scripting language. You just have to use it correctly.
So, if you're looking for a great framework to get started with, find the one you like. After that, prepare to mod it out.
As for me, i prefer home grown frameworks.
