Benefit of Rooting Your Android Phone – Android is the best thing that have happened in the smart phone industry with its enormous windows of opportunity to developers because of the open source nature of the android operating system. It should be noted that Google are the owners of this operating system and are giving free right to everyone who wants to develop with this operating system.
When I meant that the operating system is open source I meant that every developer has access to the source code of the operating system and can modify the code of the android operating system to suit what they want, the only thing they would have to do is to release whatever they have designed free to the android community without charges.
Android is so sweet that it can give you right to everything within the phone which is from the kernel (serves as an intermediary between the app and the hardware) codes to the entire access module within the phone.
Now one of the greatest access granted by android is the root access to the phone owner which give he or she right to do whatever they want with the phone. That is they are now the designers of the phone.
NOTE: most manufacturers would tell you that once you root your smart phone you will void your warranty.

You can root your mobile phone using the following android mobile app Framaroot, Root Genius and Towel Root, Kingroot . for Samsung and some phone manufacturer the rooting procedure is kind of different.
Benefit of Rooting your Android phone
