Not really if you don't use Knox you shouldn't care much. I think I'm about to trip it after two months on stock.

One thing people have been confusing lately is a soft brick vs a hard brick. They freak out when theirs phones won't boot past splash screen. When your phone won't turn on at all. That is when you are hard bricked and are pretty much screwed.
