How To Remove Bloatware From Your Android Device

Plamplay, Carlcare, Chimpadeedoo, these are just some of the bloatware you can find on Android devices. They came with your phone but are not component of your Android version, so it will not cause any harm to your user experience if you choose to remove them from your device. But is it really possible?

Yes, it is! removing nonessential apps that are pre-install to your device is possible, but tricky, and sometimes can cause you harm.
As of now, there is only two known way of removing bloatware from your android device, these are:
  1. Disable the app: This is the best and recommend way. When you disable a bloatware, there are still there eating your device memory, but because disabling prevent it from executing any process, it is not eating your device RAM.
    To disable a bloatware, do the following:
    1. From the Settings screen of your device, navigate to App manager or Apps to reveal the full list of applications that is on your device.
    2. In most cases, when you navigate the App manager or Apps section, only the Downloaded apps will show, if this is the case with you, just Swipe Left or Right to go to the section titled All. These section contains all the list of apps installed on your device, whether by you, or the manufacturer of your device or the Android developer.
    3. Now locate the bloatware you want to disable and Tap on it.
    4. When the bloatware details screen show, tap on the Disable button that is just beneath the bloatware name and version number, and then tap on Disable App in the confirmation dialog box that will appear.
      Note that you can choose to clear the bloatware stored app data and cache before disabling the app.
  2. Uninstall the app: This is the risky part. Android policy have it that, to prevent user from tampering with the smooth function of their device, the users have to be disallowed from uninstalling any app that come pre-installed with the device and that include bloatware. So the have module in place that remove the Uninstall button from any pre-install app.
    But of cause, the module can be bypassed. To bypass it, you have to ROOT your Android device.
    If this is the first time you are hearing about Rooting and Android device, then I will not recommend you do it, until you have made additional research to find out the pros and cons of Root an Android device.
    When you Rood your device, all limitation that Android place on you will be broken, and then with the right tool (that is the Super User Agent) you can uninstall any bloatware of your choice thereby freeing both your device memory and RAM.
