Re: It's that time again: Smartphone upgrade!
I like my iPhone 5 out-of-the-box, but if I ever get an Android phone I'm going to root it immediately so I can play around with it.
That's the thing... You don't need to root your Android phone to play around with it. Get yourself a decent launcher, like Nova Launcher, and you have tremendous flexibility.
Does that allow you to control things (ala Services on a PC) as well as uninstall the "uninstallable" apps?
Also, every thread I've seen about rooting also talks about replacing the OS. Is that necessary?
