    what are the benefits of rooting the phone?

    hi,
    im a newbie to the android and just picked up the fascinate. i have two questions...
    1) is it better than the x. i have read conflicting reports about both models and since i have 30 days to switch, can't decide what to do.

    2) what benefits do i get from rooting the phone.

    sorry if these questions are far below the standard questions posted but im new and trying to find out things

    1. Here's a thread on differences. I don't know if it will be helpful or not but I just googled the question and there are plenty of links on it:

    Droid X or Samsung Fascinate?

    2. I'm not sure what the benefits would be for the Fascinate but I would assume that getting rid of bloatware and being able to download some useful apps that you can only use when rooted would be the answer.

    See I wouldn't even consider owning a Fascinate. Not because it's a bad phone, it's a great Android phone. But I want a Motorola Droid.

    I want the Fascinate primarily because of the Super Amoled screen. The way the phone feels in my hand is another thing. I hate that hump on the Droid X's backside. Try laying it on its back on landscape position to watch a video, it was irritating to me. No one watches video on portrait position.
