This is probably a dumb question but, is there anyway to get some of the benefits of a rooted phone without rooting. I have a Galaxy S7 SM-G930T with T-Mobile as my carrier and I haven't been able to find what seems like a trustworthy guide for rooting it. I've never rooted before which is why I'm hesitant. Is there any way to get some of the perks of a rooted phone without rooting it? Better yet, does anyone have a trustworthy guide for rooting this phone they could share?

I used to root my phone the moment I got it. The S7 is the first one I didn't root, because you really can get (almost) all the nice things without actually rooting the device. :)
The important ones for me are:
  • Good Lock - changes the apparence more to the stock android look. But that might not be for everyone. You can find it in the Galaxy App Store.
  • EZ Disabler - you can disable apps you don't want. I disabled the Gear VR App and some other ones. But be careful with what you disable.
  • Disconnect Pro - this one was free for a while, you can find it in the Galaxy Apps Store. It disables ads on your phone, very very helpful. I rooted my other phones to get AdAway running, but Disconnect Pro does the same job without rooting. A free alternative would be "Adhell", but I didn't try it myself.
