So, I'm just curious. What is the first thing you do when you get a new phone and go through the initial setup?
And, how long do you run the stock ROM before you root and flash?
I will normally download and install a different launcher and set up my screens with my apps and widgets.
Or I will see what kind of bloatware I have and how much available storage I have to work with.
The first phone I had was the Droid X2 which I didn't root until about 10 months after I got it. I researched and read about the basics of rooting then finally decided to take the plunge after a few months.
The second phone I had was the S3 on VZW. I had it less than one months before I rooted it and flashed a Custom ROM. I just couldn't take the ui of TW.
I eventually sold it after 3 months and bought a VZW Galaxy Nexus in near mint condition. I unlocked and rooted it the first day I had it. I am still on the stock ROM after having it for a week. I couldn't be happier with the performance. The battery life is horrible, of course, but I am always near a charger.

I when receiving new phone I adjust general settings, and all the rest as required.
