Granted you actually root your devices. Honestly there is nothing I need root for with this device.

1. I can record games with internal audio.
2. I like the eq with my new jaybird x3s so I don't miss audio mods.
3. There's a built in theme engine so I don't need substratum or cm theme engine. Plus themes aren't high on my list of important features but they are cool.
4. I never cared much about xposed except for adding a restart option which samsung ads on there phones.

For me rooting would be a waste of effort because I wouldn't use it for anything.

I like to mod and control my phone completely. So yes I miss it. I don't use Xposed though mostly changing root files and changing boot animations setting different system apps ect....

This will be my first non-rooted Android, and I can't say it bothers me in the least. It's my 11th, with a 2 year iPhone break.

I use mine for work so I couldn't root if it were available. With Nova and a theme from the Samsung store I'm happy with it.

I actually switched to Apple a few years ago to get experience with iOS and because I got tired of flashing and tweaking. Seemed I was always downloading and tinkering more than anything else. I didn't miss it then and I don't now.
