I just had the great privilege of unboxing my S3. Coming from the OG Droid, it's something that I haven't done in a long long while. After charging up the battery and activating my phone, I linked up my Google account.
My contacts imported just fine, but I wanted to see if my apps were transferred over as well, and when I opened up the app drawer (for the first time), it was damn full of junk that seems to me like bloatware. Sadly, my apps didn't import, but that's fine (I barely had any) as I'd like to purge my phone before I install my apps.
My question is, does anyone have any tips on how to remove these awful apps from my device? If this is not possible, then surely there must be some way to hide it from the stock launcher?
Also, if removal is possible, does anyone have any suggestions as to what apps to remove and what not to remove? Which ones would you get rid of?
Thanks in advance!
