If you cannot find any apps you want to use from the Google Play Store, you might want to get root access on your Huawei Ascend P6 smartphone.

Giving your device rooting permissions is the same as giving your device administrator permissions from the Windows operating system. With Android, you can use that root access to the internal system to run additional apps from the Google Play Store that require root access to work.
