    In short, it allows you "root-level access" of your phone's operating system. It can be used to open up operating system options that a carrier has locked down. It's also a way of getting rid of all of the crap they add in, installing ad blockers, changing battery settings, adjust processor speeds, activating free hotspot functionality, and on and on...

    It's also not something that I readily recommend for those that don't have some level of technical aptitude. The process can be both tedious and stomach-turning. lol

    Is this akin to jail-breaking an iPhone?

    Yep, although rooting an Android allows significantly more technical revision than jail-breaking an iPhone.

    Just wanted to update this

    I ended up picking up a nokia 1520 to replace my note 2. Always wanted to try a windows phone.

    So now I have an 5s and 1520
