As we seldom know, rooting an Android is one reason why the brand has become so popular in the mobile world. Even members of the Google team love hacking and support it. Once a device has obtained root access there is many things you can do. Overclocking has been just one these popular things.

What is Overclocking? Essentially, it means to crank up the power and make it to perform tasks quickly. When mobiles arrive on store shelves they are set at a certain speed. This speed is generally in the middle, which combines speed/power with the other side of the spectrum, which is battery length and overall device lifetime. The problem with this is that it does no suite everyone’s needs, as so many things that come stock don’t. Now that you have opened your device up, you now have the option to clock it at what speeds you would like.
