The way to achieve this is by gaining dominance over developer features on your device and this can only be fully unlocked by rooting your device.

Rooting most android devices is a piece of cake with the likes of Kingroot (one of the most powerful root access app around) being able to root most android devices.

However, due to new security features Google added to the latest versions of the Android OS (marshmallow v6.0 and Nougat v7.0), rooting has gotten trickier for devices running on these latest Android OS versions.

The latest Tecno flagship device, Tecno Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 plus are two of such devices running on Android Marshmalow
