    No. But this is just my own opinion, which may or may not be the same as others.

    I recently came from Android, so this is my first iPhone. All of my Androids were rooted with custom ROM's because I loved being able to customize beyond what they allow without root. But a jailbroken iPhone doesn't, to me, give you the same amount of customization. I jailbroke my iPod to check it out and was not impressed. At all.

    The only way to know for sure if YOU will like it is to Jailbreak and see. What you're looking for may or may not be the same as what others are looking for in a jailbreak. My recommendation is to research heavily and see what it offers before you jailbreak. You'll be able to make an informed decision that way rather than asking others.

    Asking others here is also a research and I think some here in the forum have jailbreak idevices, so he surely can do research here if he wants. That said, I use my jailbreak iPhone 6s Plus for:
    Recording incoming and outgoing call
    Hiding apps label on the home screen
    Installing tweak that make touch home button as press home button.
    To lock any application I want to lock
    To display my actual download upload bandwidth
    To get more statistics on my battery
    To create new photo folders, and create albums in that folder, and move (not copy) pictures from camera roll to folder>albums and password it.
    To enable apps store to download more than 100mb apps over mobile data
    To add some level of customization to the keyboard, systems wide UI
    To download anything I want from safari, be it .exe .zip .dmg .ipa etc
    To be able to download any YouTube video of safari or dedicated app.
    To be able to rescale non native apps to iPhone 6 Plus display size
    To be able able set up several gesture to enable/disable setting such as personal hotspot, LTE, wifi, etc
    To be able to add a system wide 12 band eq
    To be able to... the list is long
    You can give it a try and see if you will like it or not, reverting your device to stock is a straight forward process, just remember to backup your files first of all in iTunes.
