If you’re after a mid-range handset, there are tons of great options right there. However, one specific model that caught our attention was the Samsung Galaxy On5, a very well built device with a spec sheet that will most likely be enough for the average user.
However, we do know about Samsung’s biggest problem: the operating system. Usually, only high-end models receive the latest updates on time, while most mid-range models need to wait a very long period to get them. Besides this, we all know how annoying TouchWiz can be some time, especially if your carrier loaded it with unnecessary apps. Still, all these can be fixed through a very simple process…
Rooting your Samsung Galaxy On5 is a relatively simple process, which will enable you to get the max out of Android. One of the biggest advantages is that after doing it, you can install a custom ROM on your phone, taking personalization to a whole new level!
In order to root the phone, you need to have a custom recovery installed. You can find a detailed tutorial on how to do this here.
