The Redmi Note 3G has received a lot of positive reviews around its performance, user-friendly interface, and battery backup. When launched, this budget smartphone used to come with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. In this article, we will look at how to root Redmi Note 3G smartphone.
We’ll start with a disclaimer. Rooting your phone will void its warranty. You should know that you are doing so at your own risk.
Why should you root your Redmi Note 3G?
Here are few reasons why you should root your device:-
• Enhancements to the battery
Rooting your phones gives you access to applications that can help you save battery. Greenify, for example, gives you control of applications that drain your memory by hibernating them when not in use.
• Custom ROMs
Custom ROMs might be the best thing about rooting your phones. Android patches and features are often released quicker by developers than by manufacturers. A custom ROM will give you a whole new experience if you’re disappointed with the functionalities on your devices.
• Remove Bloatware application
Many Android devices come with bloatware, which takes up space and makes your phone slower. Most bloatware applications can only be disabled on Android, but Root allows you to uninstall them entirely from your phones.
• Extreme Customization
Customization is one of the main characteristics that distinguish Android from other operating systems. You can customize the boot logo, font style, navbar keys, use different sound presets, and do many other things by rooting.
• Overclocking and underclocking
Overclocking can boost the performance of your processor and take your user experience to a different level. However, you can also underclock the processor to reduce the performance and increase the battery life on your phones.
