Note: All the data on the phone will be loosed once the bootloader unlocks on the device. Moreover, there will be a chance to forfeit the warranty of the device.

Conclusion

Unlocking a phone bootloader should be done perfectly without any mistake so that it won’t affect the running of the device.

Hence, when done with care, you have the chances of installing any preferred package like a new Os and getting privileges over the manufacturer’s limitation.
