    Unfortunately this isnt like a watch where the insides is sophisticated and beautiful. The inside of a smartphone just looks bland and ugly to me.

    I'm getting really tempted to remove the back and replace it with a slickwrap natural series real leather skin. My only concern is that the edges might be a little long. The thicknesses of the leather on top of the glass and the edge showing is what's stopping me from going the normal route. It seems like the back removal is easy enough

    Why would you void the warranty on a brand new 800 dollar device on purpose?

    No. Because Verizon sucks. Lol. I wouldn't buy a phone from a company that deactivates half the features of a device.

    Not even if they cost less than half the competition as in my case?

    No. I just mean that there are plenty of people who don't care about their warranties. Like people who root

    The Verizon and AT&T probably will never be able to root. The software has a switch built in thise two that stop it from booting once it is rooted.

    Being able to root and unroot, doesn't mean Knox isn't tripped, which voids the warranty, even if unrooted.

    I thought the latest Know in Note 5 will permanently disable the phone if rooted. (i.e. automatic irreversible bricking by Samsung)

    Use triangle away. Reset the knox count.

    Since when can that reset the Knox counter? Why would people warn certain roots trip the Knox counter if you can just reset it?

    Dunno. I've used it on every phone I've had after restoring it back to factory. Never had a problem with it. While there isn't a version yet for lollipop, I'm sure there will be eventually.

    It isn't the bootloader. The bootloader is just for flashing custom ROMs. You can root without a custom ROM.

    AT&T and Verizon have something else on their OS so when it is rooted, it will give you a screen telling you it is rooted and won't boot.

    The Note 4 had a locked bootloader and root was achieved on that.
