Well being rooted allows you to modify anything within the software system of the phone.
There are apps that need root. A few good apps are:
-Adaway (gets rid of ads in the web browser and in apps)
-Rom Manager (only use this on WiFi! Flash recovery twice. Choose Optimus C each time!) -This flashes a custom recovery and is the second step to putting on a custom rom. (To boot into recovery: from powered off press volume down+home+power)
-Titanium Backup (backups all your apps, texts, etc.)
The pics and vids you take with your camera go straight to your SD card as well as music. Apps2sd is what you need to google to make apps automatically go to SD card. Install a custom rom first though.
Before installing a custom rom, while in recovery make sure you backup!
With some reading of threads and asking questions, newbies become experts.
