    I've rooted all my previous Android phones, but I'm not sure I care that much any more. The main reasons I've rooted are for app backups and ad blocking, but I can now do that with an unrooted phone. In the past, rooting let me make noticeable improvements in performance, but this generation of phones appears to perform well enough that probably won't be an issue.

    There are certainly some capabilities and customizations I'll give up by not rooting, but nothing I can't live without, I think. I plan to keep it stock for at least the first year. After that we'll see how it goes. Maybe someone will figure out a root method that keeps Samsung / Android Pay intact. One the warranty is up, I don't care too much about tripping the Knox flag.

    That was a very interesting, if not a little confusing in places, read. I think I need to read it again to understand fully though.

    That article is from 2011, but it's even more true today than it was then. (Lollipop and Marshmallow handle RAM even better than Ice Cream Sandwich did.) But people still haven't gotten the message.

    I've been on note 5 stock just rooted with xposed min min guard adblock etc. rock stable. Yeah i didn't mess with any roms for it. No need. I'm debating rooting the s7 edge this time too and Adguard for non root is awesome.

    I decided to try one of the custom ROMs once again that I tried previously. I just got tired if the poor battery life on my Note 5.

    After installing that ROM, I let the phone sit there barley using it to see how the standby would be. After 6 hrs, the battery was at 98%. Much much better. Now it is at 85% 10 hrs in and 45 minutes screen time. This seems like it is more on track to what it should be.

    I have no idea what was causing my battery to drain so quickly on the stock OS.

    I will not be rooting my Edge since Adguard is doing everything that I would normally root my phones for anyways.

    Yeah it can be annoying if your battery life is like that. My note 5 battery life has been great 5 to 6 1/2 screen on time with heavy mixed use. So i'm hoping to get an hour or two more with the s7 edge. This is the first phone i might not root right away too. So i don't lose samsung pay and thank goodness for adguard

    Looks like the S7 is going to be very, very hard to root. Ever.

    While waiting for my Edge to arrive I am getting to know about it as much as possible and I had the same doubt about micro as card adoption into internal memory touch wiz does allow memory adoption (marshmallow feature of adoptive storage) which doesn't need root just YouTube a video searching " how to get adoptable storage on Galaxy s7edge " and you will get the video it's kinda easy @OP
