Note 8 here, and while the desire to root will always be there for any hardcore enthusiast/geek for certain features that are otherwise impossible to get to, for 99.9% of the population out there, it would be of no benefit I'd say.
Also, Samsung/Android OS has really improved from a bloatware perspective, and the ability to put apps to sleep or withhold from memory.
Couldn't be happier with this device, and nothing else out there is comparable in terms of overall features and performance.
