Disable Apps on Samsung

Last update:

Mobile phones and tablets of the Samsung brand usually come from the factory with pre-installed applications that are not always useful or we do not need and we can deactivate them so that they are not running in the background and therefore collecting information and consuming battery.

Unfortunately there are applications that cannot be deleted from the device, the ideal would be to be able to uninstall them to free up storage space, but the manufacturers prevent their deletion completely.

Why can't I delete some apps from my Samsung device?

The main reason for a manufacturer to prevent deleting an application built into the device by default is that it is an application on which the proper functioning of the device depends or it could be a basic application such as a calculator, radio, clock, telephone, etc.

Another reason is that some manufacturers of devices with the Android operating system such as Samsung reach agreements with other companies such as Amazon, Netflix or Facebook so that their devices come with their applications installed by default in exchange for an economic agreement, in this way They can increase your profit margin and offer cheaper mobile devices and tablets.
