Sharing is caring!

There are a lot of smartphone types and models, and it’s safe to assume that you can find a device for anyone’s taste. Regardless of what your goals are for the handset, whether you’re focusing on business or leisure, or how tech savvy you are, smartphone manufacturers from all over the globe are pumping out units that can accommodate your personal style.

However, no matter what your personal preferences are, there is one thing that unites all smartphone users, and all handset owners can agree on: There’s never enough storage space. If you have a smart device of your own, you have surely encountered a situation where you wanted to install something and you couldn’t because there wasn’t enough free space.

That’s a problem that can vary in difficulty based on how much stuff you have on the device, but there’s something everyone can do to lighten the weight a bit. And that is uninstalling pre-installed apps that no one likes or needs, and are just there to eat your memory. Pre-installed apps are applications that came with the operating system and you had no say about.

Straight off the bat, we must mention that rooting your device can help you get rid of all the unwanted apps, but it comes with its own price. If you don’t care about device warranty however, it might be worth your time to give it a shot.

The most common way to get rid of unwanted apps without rooting your device is to navigate to the Apps section the phone’s Settings. This will take you to a list of apps where you can see all the applications installed on your phone. They usually come with uninstall and disable features, depending on what kind of app that is.

If it’s something vital to the system, Android won’t allow you to uninstall it but you could maybe turn off updates for it so that your memory doesn’t continue to suffer.
