Less bloatware on the Galaxy S6

Unfortunately that won't include the price. At least when it's first released.

Re: Less bloatware on the Galaxy S6

Yes, that would be very welcome. I have a Nexus 5 now and there are more than 20 Google apps, many of which I know I won't use but take up a lot of space.

Re: Less bloatware on the Galaxy S6

That's the beauty of rooting but won't be doing that on my Note 4 just yet

Re: Less bloatware on the Galaxy S6

I wish I were tech savvy enough to root, but I don't feel confident enough.

Re: Less bloatware on the Galaxy S6

At a guess I don't think you'd see much change out of £600 at the outset.

What phone would you root if you could?

There are auto root routines available for most - I'll pm the link or take it elsewhere if you're interested?

Re: Less bloatware on the Galaxy S6

Nexus 5, mate. I really like the phone, but I'd love to get rid of some of the Google apps. I know there are some system apps not to be messed with, question is, which ones?
