I don't mind the bundled Samsung apps, most of them are actually good but I should at least have an option to disable ones I don't use (Samsung pay doesn't support my cards and the notes app is poor). But the real problem is 3rd party apps from the likes Facebook and Microsoft. I don't use them or want them on my phone at all. Yes I can disable those but they are hefty apps that are still using storage I could be using for things I do want. 3rd party apps should ALWAYS be down to the user to decide what THEY want to install, not what Samsung decides. That's the whole point of app stores isn't it? Yes I realise this all comes down to money, making deals with these companies to put their ***** on but at the very least let users uninstall if they don't want them. I love my Samsung, it's been a great phone but I'm currently looking at getting a new phone and I'm afraid I won't be taking any Samsung into account no matter how good it may be because of the 3rd party bloatware. No it won't make any difference and won't affect profits but at least I won't have to put up with it. (I tried to write this as direct feedback to Samsung but like always, there was a server error.)
