    I thought iPhones were the best until my Sprint contract was eligible for an upgrade and to the Note 4 I went!!! So glad that I did, iPhones are so basic and pretty much they're all the same lol. You truly are missing out on Androids full potential if you choose not to root your phone, I love the Note 4! ONLY complaint I have is the headphone jack placement since it dangles over the screen and back by the cam sometimes but I will be trying a new Bluetooth headset soon.

    I am glad you like your phone! Rooting isn't 100% needed for full potential use. Some people just don't have any need to (I am one of them now) -- Stock runs fine .

    Lol definitely not losing anything. Rooting just gives android so much more but to each his own

    I didn't say losing out either, learn to read. I said missing out (on root features)

    See that's my point..... Your talking like you have to root it to get most out of your phone. You don't.

    I never root Androids or Jailbreak iPhones.

    Some do and that's fine but I don't feel like I am missing out because I choose not to..

    as to the original point going from iPhone 5s to NOTE4... i just did it.

    My first droid.... WOW

    screen blows it away
    battery life.. blows it away
    customization blows it away
    the swipe down notification options basically put apples 2 options (swipe up from bottom, swipe down from top) into one with the ability to customize whats in there
    camera BLOWS iphone away

    .....there is a pattern here....

    Welcome OP. I came from an iPhone 5 and I agree that there's certainly more to do and see with my new Note 4. I've had mine for10 days and I'm still tinkering with it. And the screen and battery life are certainly a step up in weight class.

    I'd say coming from am iphone, the last thing you'd need to do is root. I could understand going from a Droid to iPhone and wanting to jailbreak.

    Just an FYI since you guys switched .. You should call it Android. If you say Droid in forums people may get confused and think you mean the Droid Phones (Verizon Exclusive) instead of Android as a whole.

    Either way .. Welcome to Android & Android Central! .
