The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is a great smartphone but it can be made even better when you root it. A rooted Galaxy S6 Edge is far more capable of delivering a customizable experience than a non-rooted one. This goes for any Android smartphone as a matter of fact, a rooted device allows for more freedom not only in terms of how you use the smartphone but also what you run on it.
I’ve used a rooted smartphones for over 3 years and just now I have moved away from that because the latest Samsung upgrades have been phenomenal. However, the Galaxy S6 Edge is a bit older and may not receive the latest Android update at all.
So, this is a great time to simply root the device and move on to more capable and faster ROMs and even use apps that provide exceptional functionality. This app list aims to introduce you to some of the best Android apps that work best on rooted smartphones, specifically the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Due to the large difference of nature between the apps, they are not in any particular order.
Dumpster works exactly like how the Recycle Bin works on Windows based PCs. The app can allocate a storage space dedicated to saving pictures and videos you delete. This means anything you delete will be stored in a separate place which will only be accessible by this app.
I accidentally delete something important all the time, especially when browsing pictures and videos that I took myself. With this app on my side I can rest easy that anything I delete will be not actually deleted but saved in a safe place. No matter what you delete, files, folders, videos or pictures you can easily restore them by accessing this app.Show Downloads
If you’re constantly tinkering with custom ROMs for Galaxy S6 Edge or installing different mods on your device, you may need to boot into the recovery mode.

Greenify allows you to track each app that you install on your smartphone. And by track, I mean obsessively note everything the app does, especially when it comes to battery leaching and memory hogging. The app will also track any other apps that are stealthily running in the background and slowly draining your battery away.
Even though the latest Android version is quite adept at tracking such rogue apps, you may still need a bit more details than you can get on the default battery manager. Basically, what this app does is help you identify misbehaving apps and put them into hibernation when you’re not using them. To be fair, the latest Samsung update does include this feature built-in, so you may not need this if you’re Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge receives the update.Show Downloads

System app remover
These days Samsung is not stuffing their smartphones with bloatware. However, many carriers are still cramming their own apps in smartphones and forcing us to always have them occupying storage space. As the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge doesn’t have a microSD card slot, the internal storage is a lot more precious.
System app remover, as the name says, allows you to easily remove any app that is protected. So those useless apps in your app drawer can all go away simply by starting this app and deleting them. There isn’t much to this app apart from this useful feature and I have to say, if you’re going to continue using the TouchWiz skin, it is better to say farewell to the useless Verizon apps.Show Downloads

This is of course for the enthusiasts and developers, because modifying any kind of files and those in accessible folders can lead to drastic consequences.Show Downloads
