    Well root basically allows you to have superuser access to the linux based operating system on your phone. It allows operations that need root access.

    For examples of uses:

    Overclocking the processor on the phone.

    Custom recovery screen the phone can boot into.

    Some file managers with root privileges can access and modify area that are normally locked.

    Some backup software can access locked areas.

    Install custom roms that could alter the look and add additions features to the phone.

    Have more control over what apps can be installed on the sdcard instead of the internal memory.

    ------------------------------------------

    In addition if the phone has an unlocked boot loader you can change the kernal which is what the boot loader executes to start the android os. The kernal is a major underlying part of the os. Benefits of changing the kernel could allow more options in overclocking or better options that decide how certain hardware works with special applications. For example not all kernels allow wireless tethering to work fully. It all depends on the model of the phone. Don't quote me on this but I do believe your phone model does have an unlock bootloader. I do know it can be rooted with no problems.
