Welcome to the forums pokerace, glad to have you here.

If I wasn't on Tapatalk I could provide a better answer but basically people root their devices to get more control of the device. So many things at unlocked when you root your device. Another reason is also performance, it is usually increased upon rooting and putting a different ROM onto your device. I know when I rooted and put one on my battery life increased by about 25%. I would truly say though if you at interested to read up on it more before preforming it.

Thanks for joining
