We suggest you root your Samsung Galaxy A5 smartphone from 2016 so you can start installing more apps. With the root access to the internal system, you are opening the doors up to Sudo permissions where you can have full control of your operating system. Many of the best apps require that root access to run are available for you to install once you finish this guide.
One application we always recommend rooted users install is the Titanium Backup application. The Titanium Backup app gives users the best backup app out there on the market. It also offers Samsung users a way to banish the bloatware by removing many of Samsung’s stock apps from the operating system. You can do that without changing your stock ROM for a custom ROM.
