Even though Samsung Galaxy S7 was released a little while back, a lot of people have already rooted their international version. I’m aware that the QUALCOMM version that’s available in the US may be giving people trouble trying to root, but I’m pretty sure that the community will come up with a solution. So if you already have a rooted device, then you should check out these 10 best apps for rooted Samsung Galaxy S7 to further spice up the great device.
I have to hand it to Samsung; they have massively reduced the amount of preinstalled apps they shove on their smartphones. This time around, there is significantly less bloatware on the international version of the smartphone. Sure, the US and UK carriers are still going to install really stupid apps of their own on the Samsung Galaxy S7, but hey, you can easily root your device and delete all those useless apps.
After rooting, you can just install one of these great apps for rooted Samsung Galaxy S7 and have a lot of fun with the latest flagship device. Before we start on the list, I have to tell you that these apps are not in any particular order due to their significantly different nature. Now that we have covered almost everything, let’s start with the 10 best apps for rooted Samsung Galaxy S7.
SuperSU is one of the most essential apps you can have on your Samsung Galaxy S7 after root. This app gives you the most control of Superuser access rights for all the apps that you install on your device. While there are many Superuser access management tools available, this is one of the most popular and trustworthy apps around.
When you have root access, a lot of apps may require odd permissions; with this app you can make sure that those suspicious apps won’t get any access to your data. One of the best features of this app is that it has a great pop up notification system.
For example, if you only want to give root access to an app for five minutes, you can do so with this great app. The app also comes with deep process detection so that no more unknowns are left in the apps. The app runs quietly in the background on ghost mode and uses very little system resources.
2. Titanium Backup ★ root
Even if you have an unrooted Samsung Galaxy S7, Titanium Backup is one of the best Android apps of all time. The interface might be a little uninviting to some people but trust me, this is the best backup app you’ll ever need.
Titanium Backup is not just a backup app for your data but also an incredibly powerful tool for Android smartphones that are rooted. You’ll be able to back up almost everything on your device. This includes photos and videos and even text messages.
But that’s not all; this app will be able to back up installed apps in the state they are in. For example, if your farming game doesn’t use cloud storage, you can back it all up. When you restore that backup, you’ll start exactly from where you left off.
You will also be able to freeze certain apps so that they don’t use system resources. It’s a very deep app that requires a full article about it, and we have already written about how to get its full functionality. Give it a read if you need deep details about what the app has to offer.
Tasker is the one app you don’t know about, but you need. The learning curve of this app is quite steep but once you get the hang of it, you’re going to hang onto it for a very long time. As the name suggests, this app allows you to accomplish certain tasks without your input.
That’s right, you won’t have to be present for the app to work for certain tasks, the app will do everything for you. It is an assistant that follows a set of instructions when certain conditions are met.
For example, when you leave the house, the app can easily send a text to your boss that you are coming to the office. Or you can launch the video player on the smartphone when you plug in the headphones. There are so many combinations of things you can do with this app that it will be impossible to list them fully here. Check out the Tasker Vs IFFFIT article to learn more about this great app.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with a great power saving mode. It even ships with an awesome ultra-power saving mode that saves you a lot of battery life. What if you want more control over the device and its battery life? Then you can simply use Greenify on a rooted Samsung Galaxy S7 and gain instant access to all the functions associated with the battery.
This app rats on apps that are misbehaving and puts them into hibernation mode when you’re not using them. It is a lot similar to what Huawei has implemented in their latest Android version, but this is not that severe, and you have full control over which apps go to sleep.
So why should you use this app over Titanium Backup? Because this app is not completely freezing an app or disabling it, it’s merely putting it to sleep, and you’ll be able to use it normally without any inputs. This is not even a task killer app for Android, so there won’t be any apps restarting or closing down rapidly and draining the battery faster.
5. DiskDigger photo recovery
Right off the bat, I have to inform you that this app won’t be able to save pictures or videos you deleted a long while back. Especially if you formatted the whole device, the app will struggle to recover any verifiable data.
But if you have accidentally deleted your important photos or videos and need to recover them as soon as possible, DiskDigger might be able to help you.
The app automatically scans your whole device for deleted photos and tries to recover them. If you have a rooted Samsung Galaxy S7, the app will be able to perform a deep scan of your device and has a great chance of recovering deleted photos.
I would also like to stress this the second time; this is not a magical app that can recover photos that were deleted years ago. Use it in a case of desperate need, otherwise, backup your important data weekly so that you don’t face a huge loss.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a great battery/power management system. It also tells you a lot of detail about the apps that have been using the juice. However, if you want even more information about your battery life and how it was consumed, you can simply install this app.
Better battery stats as the name explicitly explains, gives you better battery statistics. You’ll have full access to the records of how your battery was consumed and which app was misbehaving. You’ll be able to spot battery drainers, thanks to the detailed information about the cause. It’s a simple to use the app, but can be a powerful tool in the right hands.
7. ES File Explorer File Manager
If you want a versatile app that can do a lot of things and also be one of the best file manager apps for Android, then ES File Explorer is the one app you should get. This is one of the few apps that I recommend highly for any Android user simply because of its robust feature set.
Sure, the app has a great file manager interface that allows you to do a lot more in a very short time, but there are a lot of other aspects of the app. For example, the app comes with a very recently featured multimedia Explorer that can play music and videos for you. You can also view images as well as documents using this app.
The app also has a great application manager that allows you to categorize, backup and even uninstall apps from one screen. One of the best things about this app is the inclusion of a built-in ZIP and RAR files support; it allows you to compress and decompress those files.
8. Device Control [root]
Before we start discussing this app, I have to warn you that it is only for advanced users who know what they are doing. If you are going to install this app and mess around with the performance aspect of the smartphone, you may do some serious damage to the device.
Now that we have discussed the seriousness of the app, I would like to say that it is one of the best apps available that allows you to do some amazing things. You can tweak the CPU frequencies, governors, I/O schedulers, GPU frequencies and a lot more with this app.
You’ll also be able to do kernel specific tasks as well. If you don’t want to mess around with the voltage controller fast charging, you can play it safe by simply monitoring your GPU and battery temperature. You also get to know the time instead of your CPU and maximum and minimum current frequencies.
9. System app remover (ROOT)
This is a fairly self-explanatory app that allows you to remove system apps safely from your Samsung Galaxy S7. Even though Samsung doesn’t load a lot of bloatware on your device these days, your carrier might be including some insanely useless apps.
I’m all for encoding apps that can help users, but carriers also make their apps system apps that are hard to delete. However, a rooted Android device allows you to do almost anything. Naturally, the first thing we want to do on a rooted Samsung Galaxy S7 is delete system apps which are absolutely not needed. This app easily identifies such apps and even Mark those that are safe to remove from your system.
This is a relatively new app on the 10 best apps for rooted Samsung Galaxy S7 list, but it’s a good one. We all know that Samsung has removed the Adaptive Storage feature that was introduced in the latest Android version from their Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Thankfully, you can simply install this app and move all of your bulky video games and apps to the microSD card.
The inclusion of microSD card slot was a great move by Samsung and will help a lot of users who love to store a ton of media and apps on their smartphone. This is a very simple to use app that simply moves the bulk of data from your internal storage to the card and links it. The smartphone still thinks that the app is installed on the internal storage, but it runs from the external one.
There are already a lot of great latest apps for Samsung GalaxyS7available but if you have a rooted device, these ones will come in handy a lot. So what is your personal experience with the Samsung Galaxy S7? Are you satisfied with the performance of the device or need something improved?
