Galaxy S6 owners can remove most pre-installed Apps

Samsung logoAndroid OEMs are always criticized of putting too much bloatware on their devices which ends up costing performance. Samsung has often taken heat from customers for this. It changed gears with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Both smartphones come with a relatively bloat-free iteration of TouchWiz and most of the pre-installed apps can be deleted or disabled by users at any time.

As part of a deal between Samsung and Microsoft the company’s new smartphones come pre-loaded with a few apps from Redmond which include OneDrive, OneNote and Skype.

Apps from Google include YouTube, Google+, Google, Play Music, Play Games, Gmail, Drive, Photos, Hangouts and a few others.

Some of Samsung’s own apps are free to make it to the chopping block. These include the native Calculator app, S Voice and S Health.

Galaxy S6 owners can remove most pre-Installed Apps

Multiple screenshots posted on XDA forums show that Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 owners will be able to delete these apps whenever they feel like it. It is no doubt interesting to see that Samsung hasn’t even spared its own apps like S Health and S Voice from such a potential outcome.

This will allow them to free up more space on the device, which doesn’t have microSD support to begin with, and further cut down on the number of useless apps imposed on them.
