One of the biggest complaints that people have with Samsung devices is that they come pre-loaded with some truly awful bloatware that isn’t useful and takes up a ridiculous amount of space. This is all going to change with the Galaxy S6, however, and if this recent leak is to be believed, only a couple of Samsung apps will be pre-installed on the device as well as a handful of Facebook and Microsoft apps.
Remember when we first reported about the Galaxy S6 to be internally codenamed ‘Project Zero‘? After a huge decline in its smartphone market share, Samsung is trying to bring a radical change on both hardware and software fronts. We had exclusively reported that Samsung will remove bloatware from TouchWiz by making most of the Samsung apps downloadable from GALAXY APPS. Today, we’ve been able to source the list of all the apps that will be pre-installed on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. This list contains only two Samsung apps, three apps from Microsoft, all the Google apps, as well as apps like WhatsApp and Facebook. Samsung will also pre-install GALAXY APPS so that you can download other apps from Samsung, as well as other premium apps which Samsung provides for free.
