Samsung phones are not rooted OOTB (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2015-03-03 21:44 (#47Q4) That is the problem. My hardware. My device. Regardless of ease of rooting these days I prefer root access when it is handed over. Throw in the beefed up security and these guys meet a personal and business need. If they can provide excellent enterprise level device controls the money will roll in.

I don't think that you or most of us here are average users. Hence, it does not make sense to enable root access on all handsets but it makes sense to make it easily obtained if the advanced user wishes to do so.

I commend Firefox for keeping adblock alive as all others have eliminated the option.
