Rooting your android smartphone gives you a great power to customize it. But you should always remember that with great power comes great responsibility. Here are several reasons why you need to root your android smartphone.

  1. To uninstall bloatware (pre-installed app) or default apps

You might notice on a new smartphone that there are some apps already pre-installed. Some of those apps that are not default on Android were added by your device manufacturer.  Sometimes those apps are useless and just consume space and memory. The worst part is that some of those pre-installed apps cannot be uninstalled. You have only one choice which is to “disable” but still, those apps consumes space.  If you’re not happy with that, you can root your android smartphone and delete those apps to completely remove from your smartphone.
