Not sure if this is right sub forum

I am getting tired of using iTunes for backup/restore. Simply becoming a pain

I am thinking want to purchasing DiskAid/iMazing

Is this software worth for iPhones without jailbreaking? or is this useless for non-jailbroken phone?

I've never altered/hacked the firmware on any of my iOS devices and iMazing/DiskAid works very well. I'm still running v. 6 (DiskAid); I have no experience with iMazing, but I plan on upgrading for aesthetic reasons once Yosemite is released. You gain a lot of flexibility, access, and control not available in iTunes; the UI is a little more intuitive than iTunes in my opinion. As far as stability is concerned, I've never experienced any serious stability issues using iTunes, so I can't really say. Remember that you'll still need iTunes to restore from backup, but backups made with iMazing/DiskAid can be used for restoration within iTunes. I would not consider iMazing/DiskAid as a means to completely eliminate the use of iTunes, but gives you the ability to use iTunes much less frequently and adds pseudo-granular control over iOS file system. Download the free trial and give it a test run.

Yes, it is worth it

I have been running DiskAid for about six months and I found that it works very well. Since I have an iPhone 4 with 7.1.2 and iPad 4 with 8.1.1, sometimes it is slow finding the iPad wirelessly but it seems to eventually find both. It is the best product for moving data between my Windows XP PC and my iOS devices. I would recommend it. I haven't yet upgraded to iMazing but I think the software efforts of this company are solid. Their support group is very good too.
