It depends on what would you do with phone.
If yes -> you must study how etc. But you can flash other ROM (better or faster than stock) or kernel(for example undervolt or overclock CPU & GPU). Another interesting thing is Xposed framework (for example transparent status bar and a lot of other)
Next think is so much better backup

But waranty is waranty
Samsung Galaxy SIII
Omega ROM (4.3) v58; Boeffla kernel 5.2; TWRP recovery; Nova launcher Prime; S5 theme; Xposed

If you have to ask you haven't done any research on the pros and cons, therefore the answer is no....
