Question Root Moto G ??

My Moto G(XT1033) running on 4.4.4. Its battery is draining very fast so I thought to root it as battery saver app are not that good.But now I am confused should I root it or not ? My phone is still in warranty period and root will void my phone's warranty.

Don't bother, the people I've seen that rooted for that reason still have drain.

I rooted my phone within an hour of its delivery...Forget the warranty and root it...Android is a linux based operating system which is meant to be rooted...a custom kernel will definitely improve your battery life...

Well, I rooted within ten minutes xD It's definitely worth losing the warranty. You open a new dimension to the phone by rooting.
