    Default [Rooting] Is it worth it?

    I apologize that I am creating another thread about this since there's been a few threads about it for a few weeks now and I could of just replied in them, but I didn't want to go off topic with the OP.

    My question: Is rooting worth it?

    I know the benefits rooting has to offer:
    - Complete control over your device
    - Android Recovery
    - Custom RIM
    - Apps and tools that are awesome but require superuser access

    If there's anymore benefits, let me know.

    Are all these benefits really worth rooting? I got an S5 a month ago since I was due for a upgrade, and now I'm itching to root it but I want to hear your guys opinion to see if it's really worth it.

    Thanks for the help!

    It depends on what you want to do with root. It does bring a lot of features you might want to check out and also you can remove that crappy TouchWiz. Just try it out and if you don't like it unroot, just make sure there is and unroot for you model of the S5.

    That was one or the first things I checked out when rooting is unrooting.

    I am not familiar with this TouchWiz. Time for google. Thanks!

    EDIT: I don't mind the TouchWiz interface, but the bloatware is so unnecessary.

    That's why installing a custom Rom on Samsung devices is useful, the amount of useless feature Samsung puts on their devices is so unnecessary
