Rooting the phone allows you to install some applications that require root access for full functionality. Such applications can provide the user with additional features: saving traffic, time, saving energy, increasing productivity, etc.

However, you should keep in mind that careless rooting can lead to a device crash. aSometimes rooting a phone can lead to a complete phone breakdown. And the rooted phone usually gets out of warranty, becomes more vulnerable and requires a special control from your side. Not to mention the risk of getting a “brick” instead of a rooted device.

So before you root your phone, think about whether you’re qualified to protect it from hacking. And before you make any changes, it’s a good idea to be thoroughly familiar with the app’s capabilities.
