Many of them can't be disabled or deleted. Bixby and Samsung Pay being 2 examples. Some of them won't even let you alter permissions or optmise battery usage.

Bottom line is, removing all the bloatware requires root

That's odd? Because ive disabled Samsung pay on my s10+ and bixby isn't set up so when i press the button all i get is a notification telling me it needs to be set up and i disabled Bixby routines.

Hi @step2far  You should be able to uninstall Samsung Pay by  tapping and holding the icon,there are three options - Select,Add to Home and Uninstall.  Disabling involves  opening Samsung Pay,going to the Menu-settings-use Favourite cards.   Toggle the switch to off for Lock Screen,Screen off and Home Screen.  see more here https://fixyourandroid.com/how-to/remove-disable-samsung-pay-app-galaxy-s-notification-bar/ 

To disable Bixby for modern Devices such as S20 Series ,Note 20,S21 series

  1. Press and hold the side key of the device.
  2. Tap on Side key settings.
  3. Toggle on Power off menu under Press and hold. 
  4. To fully disable Bixby on the side key, make sure Open Bixby isn’t toggled on under Double press.   If your Device has a Bixby key you can remap it.
