Samsung will allow you to remove unwanted 'bloatware' on the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge [Update: not quite]
Update: According to the folks at MobileSyrup, it looks like you won't be able to fully remove pre-installed apps after all. Tapping on the "minus" button for pre-loaded apps (even those from Microsoft) simply disables them, rather than completely removing them. MobileSyrup demonstrates in the video below:
Original Story: Samsung will allow you remove most of the bloatware pre-installed on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, offering a more streamlined experience.
Bloatware has been a common complaint amongst users for quite some time, but with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge Samsung looks to solve this issue, including the company's own apps.
XDA Developers forum member Jeshter2000 shared the above screenshots that show the ability to uninstall a variety of apps, including content from Google, as well as Microsoft's OneDrive and Skype. Samsung's own apps, including S Voice and S Health, will also offer the option to be removed. Perfect for those who desire a more streamlined Android experience.
Any apps removed from the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge will be available for download from the Google Play Store or Samsung's own Galaxy Apps marketplace.
