I'm sort of interested in rooting my phone but first I wanted to ask a few things. I've never rooted a phone or had any experience with it so I'm pretty new to this.

The only reason why I would want to root my phone would be to delete some applications that came with the phone. Ones that I don't use. Ones that keep opening back up after I have tried to close them. It seems like there are all these applications running that I don't start or use.

I have the Go Power Master app + widget. One tap of a button and it closes 30+ apps. If I do it again later, it closes that many more again, so I assume that a lot of apps are just re-running on its own.

Could all of these apps be a reason why battery life drains quickly? Would rooting the phone help that, or would it not really affect that at all?

Also is there some kind of list of everything that can be deleted without hurting the phone?

Thanks for any help/insight. Sorry if I've asked anything that's been asked time and time again.
