I've read that many of the pre-installed 'bloatware' apps can be uninstalled from the S6.  Which apps can be removed?

go to the application manager in settings. when you select an app, "uninstall" will be an option IF it is possible.

I don't  have the S6. I'm trying to decide if I should upgrade from the S4.  That's why I asked which pre-installed apps could be removed.

i don't know exactly which ones. i know none of the google apps can be. i know i removed a few others for my wife, but had to merely disable a few also. overall, i recall thinking that there really wasn't that much bloatware compared to some of their past phones.

All the pre-installed apps can be disabled besides Verizon HotSpot, MyVerizon, and Voicemail. However, only a few apps can be fully uninstalled.

I'm not a fan of many of the preinstalled apps so I love the fact that 95% of them can be disabled.
