I can understand on older phones as I rooted my old X10 mini to get rid of facebook and other shite, and also to load customs roms but on the One S I don't really see the need?
There are still some apps you can't disable without root. I'm not sure which version you have (us/international), bit the US version has Carrier IQ. And again you get more customization options with root access.
I can understand why some folks don't see the need, but personally I want root privileges on any phone I own. I enjoy trying out ROMs and like to use a couple root only apps.
