Android is currently the world’s most popular operating system, and the system based devices on the global level of dominance. However, for many Android phone users, the word root is unfamiliar to them, even to the past. However, as early as 2014, when data showed that up to 80% Android users chose Root’s own smartphone, only 6% did not know what the word “root” was.
For 2017 years, does Android need root?
Many friends know that mobile phone manufacturers usually warn against root phone, because once the root phone will no longer provide warranty, all subsequent responsibility to bear. But in those years, Android phone root is the equivalent of opening up a whole new world. More potential will be dug up, the user can control everything, do all sorts of things that could not be done before, so there is a large number of users involved in the root army, and think that will be the phone root is an indispensable step.
So what is the benefit of the root phone? Why did so many people choose root, and today the root becomes less popular?
What can be done after root?
In those years, an Android mobile phone root can do a lot of things, with the control of all the basic accuracy, broken down the words, can be divided into a few points:
-Streamline system removal app
This is almost a top priority for most Android phone users, because after root, you can fully control the app installed on your phone with administrator privileges. There is no need to endure the messy apps pre-installed by vendors, especially the “family bucket” type of app, reducing storage space and background occupancy, so that the system is no longer so bloated, reduce the Dayton. Of course, not all apps want to delete, this operation before the forum has a control list, tell you to delete which apps will not affect the normal use of the phone. Titanium Backup was so popular that it was used to remove or freeze the app’s best choice.
Many vendors have backup tools that can back up some key data, including settings and applications, but that’s not a full backup, and even some vendors just back up the list of settings or downloaded apps that the phone changed. So, before the real cloud backup comes out, root again through the titanium backup to complete the backup of the phone, is also one of the most popular operations, any data can be easy, complete backup and recovery. Of course, there are also actions to back up the recovery through a third-party recovery, but sometimes it is easy to get a boot error or not go to the desktop properly.
It can be said that so far there are still many friends are unable to endure the official or operators no longer provide updates, only to choose root, and brush into the ROM from the civilian to firmware. After all, the mainstream manufacturers only for the one or two hot-selling models to provide continuous upgrades, but not too long, the operator to sell the mobile phone, let alone, to achieve the Google son mobile phone update speed, almost impossible to achieve. However, the third-party ROM may not be able to be compared with the official stability, and some of the functionality could not be achieved because of compatibility issues.
This is not the case, the simplest reason is that the Android camp still go each way, the fragmentation has not changed, the different pursuits still exist, then Root will certainly not eliminate. For example, the domestic well-known MIUI and FlyMe, some flyme users feel their machine bugs, see MIUI customization strong, can play high, hope that after the root of their mobile phone can brush into the MIUI. MIUI users also think that their system bloated advertising more, and choose root in order to streamline or brush flyme.
Obviously, because Android each has its own advantages and characteristics, the root purpose of the user’s choice of root remains unchanged, and Root will not die, because not every machine friend pursues the official experience. But in any case, the number of users who choose root today is getting smaller, and the final question is, if you use an Android phone, will you choose root?
