Optional: What You Can Get from Rooting
As old saying goes, everything has two sides. There’s no exception to rooting, hence I’m to show both Pros and Cons of rooting to you.
Pros: You can remove unnecessary apps pre-installed by network provider or manufacturer, get free storage space and freely update to the latest Android 5.1. Moreover, it also provides customization and increases battery life.
Cons: Rooting process involves flashing custom recoveries and ROMs. It voids warranty and even causes destructive data loss (you can refer to how to recover Android data after rooting).
