I LOVE my Droid X. It is my first smart phone and I am absolutely thrilled with it in every possible way. I get great battery life with my extended battery and Juice Defender; I get great speed with my WIFI connection. I have tons of apps for my phone and still have a ton of space left on my SD card and internal memory. I don't need to use my phone as a hot spot or get rid of the bloat ware. Many of my friends with older slower and more battery hungry smart phones have rooted their phones. This has allowed them to extend the useful life of their older technology phones until their contracts expire and when they will replace them with next latest and greatest phone. So MY question for all of you is WHY ROOT my Droid x right now, when the DroidX is acknowledged as one of the best out of the box smart phones, by many reviewers.? While I understand it won't be topping the lists for long, and rooting the phone may eventually be needed to keep it abreast with adancing technology, why should I root my phone right now ? What am I missing now if I don't?
