Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 [1]Rooting the Android operating system on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 device comes with plenty of upsides. Sure, there are some downsides too such as potentially voiding a warranty (sometimes permanently), creating some instability within your OS and other soft brick symptoms, and certain security threats which make your internal system less secure. But the upsides are huge with more apps and an uptick in device performance and battery life.

While the action of rooting an Android device may seem a little cheeky, the reasons for getting it done are extremely practical. There are few Galaxy Tab owners out there who wouldn’t find a boost in battery life something they would consider doing if they brushed up on their security knowledge first.
