    Hello everyone, I just got a new Samsung Galaxy 🌌 S5 a few weeks ago. I'm kinda new to android to begin with. But I'm here looking for advice.
    I'd like to know some good apps to use to get the most out of my phone. Apps like CCleaner, ASTRO, Battery Doctor, etc.
    I've also yet to root my phone.
    I rooted my HTC one m8 (hk) and never really got anything cool out of it. So if anyone has any advice on rooting the s5. Advantages and disadvantages etc. I'd love to hear them. I thank you all in advance for your time!

    Hello straken, sorry for the late reply lol. In my opinion rooting your device always has and advantage over stock. The main reason ppl root is for debloating.. then they stumble accross a couple cool mods and next thing you know they want ti develope roms lol happens all the time..

    But my suggestion would be to root it, then get a custom recovery installed so you can immediately back up the stock rooted rom, prefereably a fresh data-less copy so its like a fresh install of the stock rooted rom

    Second would then be to figure out how and why people debloat there devices(mainly speed and space), if its something your interested in than dont be afraid to ask questions on here if you have any.. we are all here to help ;)

    Then after you have a safe debloated rom you can start looking into mods, prefferably the xpised framework mods.. they are great lol offer many features..

    Other than that it really depends on what you want out of your device.. than search the forums, google and ask questions!! Rather be safe thab sorry.

    Hope you enjoy your s5!! ;)
