Preloaded apps are the norm for any new smartphone. Whether the manufacturer is trying to make your life easier or just trying to make you use some of its apps, there will always be a little extra in there.
You might ignore all that bloatware, not fully aware of what it is and what it does to your system. But the truth is that keeping apps that you don’t need is not the best idea. Aside from taking your memory space, they might as well be running in the background, without you even knowing it, slowing down your system.
Some users simply don’t like to keep things they don’t need and that’s another reason good enough to make you want to delete pre-installed apps on Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus.
If you’ve postponed cleaning your smartphone because you weren’t sure how to proceed, you’re going to like this article. As we are about to show you, the process is surprisingly simple and fast.
By following the steps from below, you will be able to delete some of Google’s apps, be it Google+, Gmail or even the Play Store. Bloatware apps like the S Voice or the S Health will also be history.
What you need to remember, though, before you proceed, is that some apps will be easy to uninstall while with other apps, the only option will be to disable them.

Now, shall we go to the app drawer?
