How to Remove Pre-Installed Apps from Android Phones ?

Pre-installed apps or bloatwares occupies a large amount of storage space and cause unnecessary data billing in Android. Unwanted battery consumption is another biggest threat from them. Such apps can be removed only by way of phone rooting or you can hide them from the app drawer as well. The second method is quite easier.

In System menu, go to Settings -> Apps, swipe right to get All apps tab.


Click on any app (except system services which come with default Android logo), uncheck ‘Show notifications’, and click Disable button. This process will remove the app from the system drawer. Repeat the above step for all apps on which you are not interested with.
