Root is important enough to me that I really don't mind the voiding of the warranty. I'm going to root it sooner or later anyway, it just usually ends up being sooner for me for some reason.
Agree, in fact my smartphone insurance is a lot quicker in replacing the thing anyway. Took them 36hrs to deliver a shiny new one and by insurance even covers accidental damage or loss and they don't care about Knox (btw. UK users, NatWest Silver accounts include, amongst other free things like Love film, a no questions asked smartphone insurance with £50 excess).
