No worries, AZ: AFAIK the Verizon Note 4 can't be rooted because of the encrypted bootloader. I have a Note 4 Developer Edition, which is a Verizon variant that I bought directly from Samsung. It came with an unlocked bootloader... and it's still rooted & ROMmed to this day. It's my standby, backup phone in case my current daily driver dies. So unless there has been a dramatic change, the stock Note 4 on VZW can't be rooted.
PRkid, if you're comfortable rooting and installing a custom ROM, I would if I were you. ROMs are generally bloat-free, streamline things, maximize resources, and you can customize it to your heart's content... making it your phone, the way YOU want it. Not the way THEY want you to have it.
