The Samsung Conquer smartphone can be rooted just like most other handsets in the Sammy range. As long as you don’t mind voiding the warranty, you can gain more control of your internal system. Once done hacking that internal system with the guide below, you can install every app available that’s on the Google Play Store. Applications are the best bet for your device.
The other upside to rooting and installing a custom recovery is installing a custom ROM. However, don’t expect too many custom ROMs made for this device. You rely on third-party developers to make those custom ROMs and if a device isn’t all that popular, no ROMs get made.
