galaxy-s6-vs-galaxy-s6-edge_01When Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 at MWC 2015 earlier this month, they also showed off a new user interface that appeared to be less cluttered than previous builds. It also did not come with as much bloatware as previous Samsung handsets. That being said we can only imagine that some users will want to remove it anyway and according to a previous report, it was suggested that it was possible.


Now in a recent blog post by Samsung, the South Korean tech giant has pretty much confirmed that users will be able to remove these apps (see our “How To” guide on removing Android apps in general), which the company has referred to as “cumbersome bloatware”, although chances are they might be talking about apps that some carriers preinstall on their phones rather than referring to their own apps.

Part of the post talks about the new user interface and experience in which Samsung says, “Replacing ambiguous icons with clear text, reducing the need to scroll through lengthy menu options by removing 40% of features and steps, and removing cumbersome bloatware are just some of the ways the new format is intuitive and streamlined.”

However we expect that there might be some users who find some of these preinstalled apps useful. For example it was recently revealed that Microsoft will now be preloading some of their productivity apps on Android devices and for those that rely on apps like Skype, OneNote, or OneDrive, these apps might come in handy.
