    What are the pros and cons of voiding warranty?

    I installed the 4.3 update the moment it became available, before I found out about the Knox bootloader. Now I find myself wanting to root, and I have to wonder, what are the pros and cons of flipping the warranty e-fuse?

    Obviously I'd have a rooted phone and no warranty, but what else?

    Does it in any way effect how the phone functions?

    What sorts of things are covered by the warranty anyway? What are the odds that I'd even need it?

    Do you think it's worth it? I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter!

    Thats a good question and i'm sure there will be different opinions. As long as tripping doesn't prevent the usual upgrading, flashing, etc... then i dont care at all if it is tripped and warranty is void.

    I'll use the phone as long as i'm happy with it and when i tire of it or want a newer phone for some reason, then i'll smash it to pieces & throw it away or give it to some someone less fortunate who needs a phone. I read somewhere that the majority of electronics that fail will fail in the first 1% of its life. Such as the first week or month and such is why warranties usually only cover that first period. Anyway, i have never had a phone "fail" or had a friend have a phone "fail" on its on electronically. I would rather buy a new phone than deal with warranty crap and wasted time without a phone.

    Maybe dealers here can tell us the percent of phones that fail "out of the box" or in the first month. Or the percent of phones being returned for warranty reasons.
