In this guide check out the list of Samsung bloatware apps safe to remove and how to do it.

Both Android and iOS come with some pre-installed apps and for a normal user, it's hard to distinguish which apps are important and which of them you can uninstall. Both Xiaomi and Samsung add many apps by default on their mobiles, and here is a list of Samsung bloatware safe to remove & a quick guide on how to uninstall them.

With the advent of the Android open-source operating system, users gained the freedom to install apps of their choice. The Play Store boasts more than a million apps, allowing users to personalize their phones with as many apps as they desire. Individuals like myself detest pre-installed bloatware, and I find it puzzling why manufacturers choose to include such apps.

List of Samsung Bloatware Safe to Remove

Samsung manufactures phones by incorporating some of their apps alongside the stock Android operating system. As the largest smartphone seller globally, this South Korean manufacturer has opted not to go with the stock Android user interface.

The following are some of Samsung's proprietary apps found on the latest generation of mobile devices:

  1. Samsung Members
  2. Samsung Shop
  3. Samsung Max
  4. Samsung Free
  5. My Galaxy
  6. Samsung Galaxy Goals
  7. Samsung Notes
  8. Samsung Things
  9. Samsung Pay
  10. Samsung Browser
  11. Samsung Health
  12. Samsung Smart Switch
  13. Samsung AR Zone
  14. & Others

Indeed, it can be overwhelming to have such a large number of pre-installed apps. If I were to switch to a Samsung phone, my app count would jump from 15-20 to 30-35 by default. This is where the significance of uninstalling, removing, or disabling them becomes evident.

Here is the video guide on how to remove Samsung bloatware apps -

Samsung Galaxy Store App:

Just like Play Store on your Android smartphones, Samsung has a store app of its own, and it's called Galaxy Store. I believe this app is crap for me, but sadly you can't uninstall it. So will you have to bear all the notifications by the Galaxy Store app? No, actually you can't uninstall the app directly as it requires root access, but you can disable the messages from the app and even apply other restrictions like uninstalling the app updates, updating over Wi-Fi or mobile data, and restricting mobile data usage.

Just follow the video guide mentioned below to Disable the Galaxy Store App -

Samsung Max:

Samsung on its mobile phones has its browser. Previously it was known as Samsung Internet, but they renamed it to Samsung Max, and it comes with a lot of useful options like data saving, and quick search, but when you have Google Chrome or Safari, why would you need an extra app just for browsing? Today is the world where phone assistance controls your mobile, i.e., Google Assistant will use Google search and show results on the Chrome browser on Samsung phones too. So it's wise to uninstall/remove the Samsung Max app from your mobile.

How to Uninstall Samsung Notes:

It's a note-taking app made by Samsung, but it feels is not required until and unless you find any feature of it helpful because there is already Google Keep pre-installed on all Android phones and I believe it has all the features that a note-keeping app should have infact in comparison
