I am sticking with the unrooted stock Rom for now. I am using an awesome, though not perfect, launcher called Next 3D Launcher.

Stock rom is what you would expect from a stock rom. Laggy at times but it could be my settings. The main reason why I am sticking with it is because of mixed results with rooting the MDL firmware. Users reported issues with WIFI and DATA connections. I can't seem to figure out whether these issues are due to rooting, MDL firmware, kernel, and noob mistakes. As soon as there is a unanimous confirmation of the main cause of these connections issues and a fix is posted I will be rooting.

The stock ROM, IMHO, is good enough and is perfect as a daily-driver. A lot of bloatwares and cannot be uninstalled.

Couldn't have said it better myself!
The stock rom is perfect the way it is, but about the thing you said about rooting
I never heard of that before, but from my experience, I did not have issues when I rooted

Stock ROM is okay for now. Lte works and you can use Wi-Fi to make phone calls and text. I change the launcher to Nova and call it good.

I wasn't quoting a person, I was directing your attention to a page where you will find WiFi issues.

Anyway, I wished that I could debloat the stock Rom without rooting.

Rooting should not affect functionality of your phone. And then you can just flash an entire stock rom already debloated.

This stock rom pisses me off...cuz its so damn solid I have little reason to flash others! I like the Google edition Roms, but the lack of WiFi calling on those keeps me coming back to this one. Rooted, using Nova, and I haven't had any major problems. Performance has been great, especially after the usual adjustments.

I tend to agree with you but, what you do after you achieve root is the start of when things get crazy. Sometimes we tend to abuse the freedom of removing and adding stuff and then your phone becomes an object with a character of its own. That's when we start wondering why we have problems while others do not. Yes we make our phones become individuals. They become like pets.
