Rooting involves getting “root access” to your Android phone. When you have such access, you can make changes to your phone’s default features and looks, install incompatible or blocked apps, block off advertisements, shoot up the performance capacity or reduce activity levels for better battery life. And in case you need to recover your files from the phone due to any reason, you would have to root it before doing so.
