Galaxy S6 Owners Can Remove Most Pre-Installed Apps
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.
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.
