T-Mobile promises to provide a bloatware-free Nexus 6

40 sec read

Motorola Nexus 6 sold by T-Mobile in the United States will not feature carrier branding or bloatware apps. The good news was delivered by Des Smith, the wireless carrier’s senior product manager. The Big Magenta’s move contrasts with the stance of AT&T on the subject. It became clear last week that T-Mobile’s bigger rival will sell the Motorola Nexus 6 with carrier branding and preloaded applications.

Brands. Some people love them, some people hate them. For companies however, brand logos are like endless free advertising. In the mobile world, brand awareness can get pretty noticeable if not downright obscene. Like two birds of a feather, these logos often flock with a lot of bonus software: things that most people commonly refer to as bloat. Put the branding and bloat together and let’s just say things are not pretty. Google’s Nexus line is unfortunately no stranger to either once carriers get involved, however, things were a bit better with the LG devices. While AT&T has gotten all warm and cuddly with the new Nexus 6, T-Mobile is openly proclaiming its right to be out-of-sight.
