You can install custom rom.

You can overclock or underclock processor for better performance or battery life respectively.

You can install root specific apps.

You can have paid apps for free.

You can get in-app purchases for free.

And many other advantages.

Disadvantages are:

It'll void your warranty

It may brick your phone making it unusable.

It's too complicated for a common person.


If your phone is new, I suggest wait till your warranty is over and then consider rooting.

Have a nice day

S4: better screen, camera, removable battery, capacitive touch buttons, touchwiz, SD card slot and the best battery life.

Cons: plastic body. Slowest gaming performance

Nexus 5: fast updates, stock android, great gaming.

Cons: battery life is poor, speaker is pathetic, poor camera, smallest screen considering on screen buttons.

Z1: decent camera and gaming performance. Overall balanced phone.

Cons: battery life not so good, camera is worse than s4 despite much higher megapixels, screen is seriously pathetic, speaker is bad.

Casual, multimedia or camera enthusiast: s4

Android purist or gaming enthusiast : nexus 5

Sony fan : z1
