Depends on you.

The Just Android OS is usually the factory OS that you can ask for support from maker and your cellular carrier. The other is a rooted phone that maker and carrier have yet to embrace.

I have had no reason to root a phone yet because the phones I buy are unlocked.

Do you need support? would be the question you must answer.

Rooted Phone

Yeah, Support is a must as the Android OS can give you unwanted surprises.
Regarding the rooted phone, would be helpful if its clarified in detail.
