Does rooting matter to you?

I am new to Android and got a Galaxy S6 a week ago. I have been asked a lot of time by people about rooting. Does rooting really matter for Android device? Did you root the phone or not?

    If you're asking if people are using rooted or jail break phones, you're barking up the wrong tree.

    One of my younger brothers works at Best Buy and I know he fiddles with that stuff...unless you just have an absolute definitive need and know somebody who knows what they're doing I would not do it...a lot of things can go wrong and I know they had issues with it causing problems with legitimate apps like Samsung Pay

    It's a gamble...good luck with whatever you decide!

    Rooting strips away a ton of built in security measures. Are some of them a pain in the ass? Yes. But do they still help you? Yes. For most of what you want to do with your phone you should be able to find a non-rooted version of an app that will help you do it.

    I don't like cheaters either but people like this just follow me around until they get me in trouble so I leave it to the mods/staff to find them on their own. They don't seem to have issues finding stuff to punish me for.

    They are all types of cheaters and plenty I can testify to seeing here.

    A few months back people took advantage of a bug which was published here and not within the game giving them a huge advantage over everyone else. This forum even advocated using it although again wasn't common knowledge for everyone playing the game. In my view that gave an unfair advantage and in any sport that is in my book cheating.

    So cheating does go on, is talked about on the forums, it's even been allowed to.

    This game is full of double standards, ever changing goal posts. What is available to some players in terms of high rewards are then scrapped for other.

    To be honest NG and some of its players with short memories are a laughing stock.
