Increase Internal Memory:

Also some Android Smartphones have really low internal memory like some low end smartphones from Smasung, HTC Etc, which only have around 300 MB of internal memory, and in that case installing apps becomes a pain in your arse.

You can simply increase the internal memory of your Android Smartphone, and it definitely a must thing to do after you root android smartphone, if you specifically have a smartphone with very low memory.

And in turn the processing speed of the phone will increase and then the phone will perform much faster. But this is not a thing which you must do right after you root your Android Smartphone. As overclocking is not for beginners, and I would suggest if you new to the rooting arena, you should skip this thing as off now. You can get back later when you have enough knowledge about what is really is. As overclocking your android smartphone requires skill, and you should have full knowledge about what you are doing. overclocking can give rise to many issues like heating defects, and also it can decrease the life of your processor, and even brick your device if not done properly. So if you’re a beginner stay from this overclocking thing.
