S7 won't delete apps

JUMP TO SOLUTION

My Galaxy S7 will not let me uninstall apps, even if they are unnecessary for core functionality, such as amazon app. I can only disable. Please help me.

They come with software updates or carrier updates to your phone. Unless you want to root your phone with something like Kingaroot just disable them and put them together in a folder. It of sight

It sounds like the apps you are trying to delete are built into the operating system. You wouldn't be able to delete apps that come programmed with your device.

I thought that too initially, until I saw it with apps I downloaded too. My phone didn't come with the Amazon app. That's now been changed, but I can't delete the old one. I downloaded the Samsung's VR apps, but now can't get rid of them. Even the simple games for it didn't work well for very long. Why can't I get very rid of some of these after they've been downloaded?

Are you downloading them through the Google Play Store or the Galaxy store?

When you open the app in the Google Play Store are you able to unistall the app from there?

Unfortunately not, which is strange because I was told to get a new amazon app but cannot get rid of the old one.

The carrier and Google updates have made them post of the OS. I just disable them and throw them in a folder I made for said I don't use. You could root your phone with something like the King root
