I use my Samsung smartphones and tablets for both personal and business purposes and I have absolutely no interest in games. 

How can I remove pre-installed games and game-related apps from my devices and prevent the Galaxy Store from bombarding me with game-related app promotions so that I can see the apps that might actually be of interest to me?

My expectation would be that the sizes quoted in Google Play Store do not include data and, in the case of Samsung Wallet, I have no data stored in it so the quoted size can only be the code. I can also assure you that the situation is similar for other apps where I have far more data stored in the Google app than in its Samsung counterpart yet the Samsung app takes up far more space whether you count just the code or the code and the data.

I clear cache regularly using an automated process in my anti-virus suite and also using the service menu from a cold reboot so I am very certain that my usage is obviously not down to cache nor can it be down to data for the reasons previously stated unless the Samsung apps are using excessive amounts of data storage in addition to code storage, which is point of my complaint.

My primary smartphone device is a Samsung Galaxy S8+ with 64GB of storage but I do have a lot of apps installed on it so I could do without unnecessarily large Samsung apps taking up valuable space.

Whether the issue is code or data or both, I use the Samsung app far less than the Google ones but the Samsung apps take up far more storage and I would like to know why and what Samsung is going to do about it. I would also like to know, as do many other Samsung owners, how to uninstall or disable Samsung apps that are no longer supported by Samsung or by the Android OS.
