We already mentioned that bloat applications can not be eliminated, and that is one of the most annoying things. If you root your Android device, you can remove the bloatware, but if you do not want to do it, the only option is to hide and disable these applications, and we'll show you how to do it.

Here is what you need to do:

  • Go to applications
  • Press Settings
  • Scroll down and touch Apps
  • Touch Application manager
  • Touch everything
  • Find the application you want to disable, tap and click on Deactivate to hide it.

If you ever change your mind and want to enable and display pre-installed applications, here's what to do:

  • Go to Applications
  • Press Settings
  • Touch Apps
  • Click on Application Manager
  • Touch everything
  • Find the application you want to enable and tap on it
  • Touch Disable to show and enable the application.
