When we buy a new Android device, it usually has a lot of apps on it. Some of the Bottom apps are very useful, but the rest are usually useless and even tend to be annoying. The problem is, how to delete default Android apps is not as easy as how to delete regular Android apps.
Various apps are usually “locked” in the system so we can’t remove them. This is certainly very detrimental because it will only waste memory capacity, especially if the memory on our Android is quite small and limited.
Not only that, various default applications are also usually activated automatically when Android is turned on. If so, this app will automatically take battery power even if we don’t use it.
