When you choose to root the Tecno H5 device with the KingRoot app, you can find ways to save space on your smartphone. Moving data over to SD cards is still not easy, and with root access there are dedicated apps for that. Even better than using apps for moving data to an SD card, custom ROMs like CyanogenMod often let users force apps to SD card, freeing up heaps of memory space at the same time. Rooting the Tecno handset will also mean you choose to remove bloatware your manufacturer calls stock apps. Furthermore, rooting might help you install a custom ROM if you cannot install a new ROM from just having a custom recovery alone. If that’s the case, then you should find some new custom ROMs that are faster and lighter by using up less RAM on your device.
