A few days ago I saw this post over here:https://www.reddit.com/r/android/comments/6tx04v/_/ and it made me think. Since software is something that very few phones nail, it’s common to see someone recommend a custom rom when someone complains about lack of updates or how the stock rom has more issues than some custom roms and the XDA community is full of people that use this kind of software as their daily drivers. On top of that, when you take into account the amount of stuff rooting your device allows you to do (especially when android requires root access for something as basic as toggling mobile data), it’s hard to deny that this kind of tinkering has advantages.
But then posts like the one I linked show up, and it makes you realize that leaving a device alone can also be very valuable. With all of that said, it’s obvious there is no absolute answer to this. Every case is different, every piece of software is different, but I would like to know your thoughts on this subject. Do you tinker with your daily driver? Do you leave it alone? Are you happy tinkering /leaving it completely stock? Why do you use it the way you do?
