    Why? The only extra apps I install on my phones are Google apps(but this comes with them), Textra, Nova, Helium, Dogcather and Cloudmagic

    It most likely means you have all your installed apps you've downloaded in the pictures, so how do you know what's bloatware and what isn't?

    So you have Verizon's bloatware on top of Samsung's. Nice... Their was that app suggested that can stop bloatware services without rooting you could use?

    Carrier bloatware has always and will always suck.

    Yes I bought that app, I know I can get rid of it or most. I made this thread to just show the ridiculousness amount of it in general

    What device is that? I'm guessing not a new Note 5/S6e+...could've used the new screenshot feature that lets you capture the entire page. ;)

    #nobloatMotorola

    'nuf said. I'm debating between the new Moto X or the Nexus 6 for my next phone. I have a 2013 X (just got Lollipop, yay!). I had to remove some apps from my 16 GB Moto X because of the addition of Docs Sheets and Slides to the core OS (or the inclusion of those by Motorola) but they were ones I had previously installed to kill some time and haven't used since. I seriously have less than 6 "bloat" apps on my X that are disabled and they're all Verizon-forced apps. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and hardly use any of the S-Pen features, the only thing that is nice/useful is split screen.

    Why didnt you highlight apps you calculate as a bloat? i saw alot system services and specific apps for the phone.

    Yeah the vast majority of these are system services/helper layers for apps and aren't in the app drawer. Try again thanks.

    My guess is if you can access the full iOS system it would look similar as well. Surprised you spent that much time though taking screen shots to make a useless point.

    Regardless, there is a ton of bloat. People can try to derail and sidetrack but it has a ton

    Are you seriously trying to say that a Galaxy S6 stock doesnt have a ton of bloat? Really?
