Apps/Bloatware

 I dislike most of the Samsung apps, and I  hope you will give us an option where we can remove Samsung apps. Why is there two app stores? I am pretty sure we all use Gmail, so why would we need Samsung Email? There's a lot of unesessary bloatware. I prefer to uninstall Facebook, not disable it. I would like to make this clear, I enjoy my Samsung phone.

Re: Apps/Bloatware

There are Samsung specific apps such as Samsung E-mail, Samsung Browser, & a Samsung App Store in your device as not all regions rely on Google Services. You can always disable the apps you do not want in your app drawer. Go into your SETTINGS > APPS INFO > and from here you can Uninstaller or disable any applications you do not want to use.

Hate to tell you this but I don't use the GMail app, Samsung Email is much better. If you really want to know why there are two apps, direct your question to Google who requires GMail to be installed, amongst others

Re: Apps/Bloatware

Hey there @Mykel 

Although you may be unable to uninstall some preloaded apps, you may be able to remove their shortcut. This causes them to hide from the home screen.

 

Remove shortcut

  1. Swipe left or right to locate the app.
  2. Long touch the app until the following menu appears:
    • Select items
    • Remove from home
    • Disable
  3. Tap Remove from Home.
  4. The app is removed from the screen.

You can also uninstall app updates and turn off the auto-update feature for those using the App Manager.
