The mobile has become one of our most important virtual companions that we have throughout the day. To avoid missing something, the phone needs to perform as high as possible.
For this you will have to delete apps that take up space and thus have a better battery life and have a more efficient RAM. But not all apps can be uninstalled directly, since there are some that come with the mobile by default.
Because of this, we have prepared the following post to help you remove all bloatware. If you want to know how you should do it, you will have to keep reading until the end of the article.
What are the benefits of removing pre-installed Android apps?
Some applications are installed by default on an Android mobile. This is for two reasons, the first is because some are called important for the proper functioning of the operating system. The second reason is because they exist commercial agreements between manufacturers and companies that own platforms. These types of software are called bloatware and they generate discomfort in the user.
Many times, not being able to uninstall them and taking up space in storage and RAM, makes the processor work with greater effort. This results in a not so pleasant user experience. In addition, bloatware produces a significant battery wearSince they are running in the background, they consume more mobile resources. Another of the points that generate these apps is that they do not allow the installation of others that the user wishes.
This can happen because the two are incompatible, or because you are downloading software that is considered dangerous by bloatware. So that these things do not happen to you, what you can do is disable them, going to “Settings”, then you will have to choose “Applications” and select the one you want. Next, you must press “Deactivate”.
The above step does not remove the softwareJust so you do not see it in the launcher and also that it does not open so it takes up less space and slightly improves the performance of the mobile. But this is not the definitive solution, what should be done is to uninstall the applications that do not allow better performance. If you want to know how you should do it, we will show you in the next paragraph.
