Today I've had this discussion with a few friends because they wanted to know how to stop some apps from auto-starting, put an end to Googles data hunger and how to do real nand backups without the cloud... So I've told them the best option is to root the phone and get full control of your device again. I was a bit surprised that a lot of them didn't even know of what their phones are really capable of and we're talking flagship stuff here. Personally speaking I could never have a smartphone without root Google and carriers just are to data hungry for me and there are some Apps i.e. bloatware that I just hate and it doesn't matter if it's Ios or Android each phone has them. If I'm spending money on a phone I want to truly make it mine and take advantage of all the customization options Android offers and that's not possible without root. Still can't believe that LG released the G 6 with a locked bootloader in Europe.
