Earlier in this month the US Carrier provider Verizon launched a survey, in which they asked from customers about the Bloarware and how they felt about the pre-installed apps. Now the Verizon has announced that they are testing for a new approach to Bloatware on the LG G3. This new version of the LG G3 will not come with pre-installed apps (Bloatware), instead they will be downloaded during the set-up process. And the apps which are preset to download will not count any data usage. While the apps are still going to be downloaded to the device, they will also be completed and 100% uninstallable.
This new Bloatware Process on LG G3 of Verizon has added an app drawer if they were pre-installed, but since they have been downloaded in a traditional sense, they can be removed the same way. Verizon told Droid Life, “The applications can be completely and entirely uninstalled by the consumer via the standard uninstall process.”
If you want to Uninstall, then all the things are not gone be removed or deleted, the Verizon’s ha own suite of apps couldn’t be removed. It seems as though the Verizon is just allowing certain apps to be uninstalled, like Clash of Clans and Hotels.com apps. This is a small step for the ultimate goal of completely removing all Bloatware in a no-root-required manner, and while not the solution we were hoping for it’s a step in the right direction.
A new survey could be sent out to find out how the changes have been received by the consumer so keep an eye out for that if you’re on Verizon’s network.
