One of the beauty of owning an Android powered smartphone is the huge amount of applications available for download.

Indeed, the power of a smartphone lie in the number of tasks in can perform and also in the amount of apps available to achieve numerous tasks.

However, one of the problem one faces is that there are so many apps in the Google Play Store, about 800,000 but the quality and usefulness of most of the apps are very low.

Consequently, one spend a lot of time trying to figure which app to download and which one not to.
Below is a list of very good, stable and top notch applications for your android device.

There are more, but you could start with this. Also, if you have tried some other apps that are equally great, you can drop it in the comments section of this page.

This app needs root access to function, soif your device isn't rooted it wont install or work.

11. Internet Speed Master: Not everyone lives in a 3G environment or has very fast WiFi. Some depend on 2G, EDGE internet speed. With this app, your Internet speed would be boosted 200%.

16. Du Battery Saver: Imagine having all the aforementioned apps above and you dont have a way of monitoring your battery usage? You will find out that your battery runs out like no man business. That is why you need to preserve the juice of  your phone with this app. It helps you to optimize your battery and make your device stay alive for a longer period.

17. Droid Wall: This is the perfect app to make your data plan last longer. Honestly, Smartphones have a way of silently eating away your Internet data bundles.  With Droid Wall is the best app to save your Internet data bundles. 

Here you have it folks, 16 good list of excellent, quality and high standard apps to make your Android smartphone a superhero. I have personally tried all these apps on my rooted Tecno F7 and they are safe and stable.

Mind you, some apps can brick your phone or put it in reboot loop. Stay away from them especially theme apps, Chainfire 3D, Font Changer lite. Be careful. Read reviews before you download any app to  your Android phone
