Become a ‘Superuser’ by Rooting Your Android Device
The root operation in Android is much the same as it is there: it gets you full access to the entire file system, making you a “superuser”.
Rooting is the Android equivalent of jailbreaking, a means of unlocking the operating system so you can install unapproved apps, delete unwanted bloatware, replace the firmware, overclock (or underclock) the processor, customize anything and so on.
You can root your Android device with a single tap by installing KingoRoot application. This app is not available on Play Store and you have to manually download & install its apk.
$$ This is not a hack which I recommend but you can try it for sure.
Rooting breaks the warranty of your device and will end your support services. So it’s preferred only if your device is too old and you want to improve its performance. There are many other complications but you won’t face them as long as you follow proper tutorials.

Use Your Smartphone Camera to Full Potential
Did you know that your phone camera does not use it’s full potential and you get only 16 MP picture quality on 20 MP camera? Not anymore. After your phone is rooted, download the Build.prop editor app and add below line to the file
Ro.ril.max.jpeg.quality = 100
By editing build.prop file, you can also change device name and version which will allow you to use unsupported apps too.
Save Your Battery and Charge Your Phone 2x Faster
Yep, you read that right. And you don’t need a turbo-charging phone for this hack to work. Just switch your phone to airplane mode while charging it. Your phone’s cellular connectivity, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS will be automatically shut down in airplane mode.
This significantly reduces the battery consumption hence resulting in faster charging and longer battery life.
Pro Tip: Use dark-themed wallpapers to reduce overall battery consumption in display.
Access Blocked Content 😉
Banned websites or any app unauthorised in your country or college(you know what I’m talking about 😅) simply download a VPN and change your browsing location accordingly. For example: Spotify is currently unavailable in India but you can download it from play store just by changing your browsing location!
