It has been observed that the Galaxy Store app on Samsung mobile phones is consuming too much space/RAM and always disturbs you with notifications. So here is the guide on how to disable Galaxy Store app on your smartphone.

Samsung Electronics is one of the largest smartphone sellers for Android brands, and its manufacturing plants are located worldwide. The company ships their mobile phones with OneUI custom skin on the Android version and there are also many Samsung dedicated apps. We have already gone through the list of Samsung bloatware apps safe to remove.

Why Samsung Galaxy Store App Needed?

Samsung has the habit of having its own apps related to every stock Android app available. For example, for health and as a Galaxy Fit alternative, Samsung phones are shipped with Samsung Health and other bloatware apps like Galaxy Goals, Members, Max, Shop, Notes, Samsung Pay, Smart Switch, and the newly added AR Zone app.

Similarly, as an alternative to Play Store, there is a Galaxy Store app. This app recommends the top 4 apps from every niche music, social, entertainment, lifestyle, and medical apps. A logical question - when you have Play Store why would you need another app store to download apps? And who will download the app on a daily or weekly basis? Once you get all the apps you need on your phone, you are done installing apps. So in my view, the Galaxy Store app is a pure bloatware app that is not at all needed. But can you uninstall or remove or disable it?

Let's check it out here!

How to Disable Galaxy Store:

Android mobile has the option to disable or completely remove an installed app on your mobile phone but since this is an open operating system, Samsung Electronics customize it to their own operating system and named it OneUI. (Read more about OneUI 5.0 update)

Putting the App into Deep Sleep Mode:

If you have a deep sleep app on your phone, then you put Samsung Galaxy Store app in deep sleeping mode.

The deep Sleeping app restricts the app from running in the background and thus saving battery for you. Even if you open this app, it will go back to deep sleeping mode once you close it.
