I get that the apps that are already on your phone are probably there for a good reason but it is so annoying when you have 10 apps that you don't even use but they take up so much storage space and I can't buy more storage space. When you get a Samsung phone why does it come with so many useless apps??? 😕 😕 😞

that's the thing it won't let me uninstall them only turn them off but turning them off only makes to where I can't use the app at all and it still uses up my storage space

@jungkooky937 

Play Books on my Note 20 Ultra 5G uses 45 MB of storage.

Play Games uses 38 MB of storage. 

The total amount of storage used by these is extremely small compared to the storage capacity of your phone. Deleting these won't free a significant amount of storage space on your phone.

But if you do want to delete them, just long press on them until you get a pop up. Click remove.
