It opens the gates to access deepest features, which cannot be accessed by common users. The Android operating system is already famous for its ability to customize features; on top of this, rooting gives you more power to get the best of your Android device. There are a couple of ways you can root your Android devices like Galaxy S9/S9 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S8, and S8 Plus, and Google Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL. But once you root your device, how to check if your Android phone is rooted or not.
Thankfully, there is an easy way to check whether your Android phone is rooted or not. Google Play Store has a number of apps that can do this job efficiently on your Android device. Among the many apps, I like Root Checker, which flaunts a simple interface. It takes a few seconds to download and install the app, and then all you need is to press a button to check the root or unroot status on your Android phone or tablet. Users tend to forget that they have rooted their devices after a week or so, and therefore, they want to know the status – whether the phone is rooted or not.
