Pre Loaded Apps in Smartphone.

Apps

Today most of the Smartphone manufacturers used to pre-load many Apps that will be useful for their buyers. So you don’t need to be a tech-person to search, locate and download, then install these and activate these Apps to work for you.  On the other hand if you buy a Android device, then Google will provide most of its essential Apps to you, once you login with their account details.

Once you switch on your brand new Smartphone, you can notice that there are plenty of Apps that are offered as free gift to you by the Smartphone manufacturer. You may not need all of these Apps.  So here is a way to find all of them and to delete or hide those ones.

From the Home screen, tap Apps.
Tap Settings.
Scroll to ‘PHONE,’ then tap Apps.
Scroll left to the ALL tab.
Tap the desired application.
Tap Disable.
