If you use an android device, you should have heard about the term “bloatware”.
Asking this question simply means you don’t know what bloatware is, Bloatware is all the pre-installed apps that comes with a phone when you just purchased it, and many of this apps can be termed as useless because most of them are not that useful but they just take your phone memory and then make your phone perform very slow.
One thing i hate most about this bloatwares is that they are not easy to delete which makes most users stucked with the apps. One of the best ways to remove bloatware is by making sure your android device is rooted and its only apps that have root access that can also remove them on your phone .
Like i do, i have prepared a complete tutorial on how you can easily remove bloatware from your android that’s playing around on your android device using Nobloat app
This tutorial also include how you can easily restore back your bloatware apps should there be any problem while removing it.
How To Remove Bloatware on Your Android

To do this just take a long press on an app icon then you will see a menu appearing where you can then select backup.
- Once backup is complete, you now make a long press on each app that you want to disable then click ok, doing this will make the app disappear by hiding it.
