Chinese Galaxy S6 owners can remove Samsung's bloatware

Samsung Galaxy smartphone owner in China? You can delete Samsung's bloatware from your device

One of the most annoying things on any of Samsung's Galaxy smartphones is the bloatware, that cannot be removed easily. Well, thanks to a Chinese lawsuit over its bloatware, Samsung will soon be offering patches for Chinese consumers' smartphones, allowing them to delete pre-installed apps.


Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 was used in an example, but we should see recent handsets like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge also being capable of having their bloatware removed. Samsung is still not in the clear, with the Shanghai Consumer Council waiting to see if the South Korean giant will "meet its own promise" before the legal action dries up.
