    Hi I had a LG Esteem before and i rooted it and it was great, but now i Got my Samsung Galaxy S4 and I'm not sure if is worth rooting the phone, i say this because the phone has basically everything and my plan is all Unlimited so what are other features or advantages besides being able to change ROM's ?:thinking::D

    Unless you want to use apps that need root or you want to delete bloat, that's the only reason I rooted mine. Plus, I just like flashing roms. :D

    Bloat is like all the carrier installed apps that you may never use and just takes up space. For instance, T-Mobile TV I will never use. Less bloat means smoother quicker phone.

    I won't buy a phone unless it is able to be rooted.

    Ad blocker, Titanium Backup, Cerberus, freezing/removing bloat and problem apps.... IMO, rooting is ALWAYS worth it.

    Interesting. I'm new here and like christianortiz I really want to get rid of the whole bloating on my phone. The thing is because I don't know much about rooting and flashing roms, I';m scared of mess up m,y phone. I'll love it. I think is really the best next thing.

    I wish I can do it without be so scared to mees it up.

    Any help on this will be really appreciated.

    Thanks guys for this comments, I'm learning!!

    You can disable most of the bloatware without rooting. It doesn't, however, clear up the room on your phone.

    Would you like to try this method first?

    That would be wonderful. Since I'm not an expert, I'm willing to try something to release more ram.
