Get rid of Bloatware
Last but certainly not least is getting rid of bloatware. As we all know, the Galaxy S7 has tons and tons of apps installed out of the box, especially the AT&T model. While these 20+ odd apps can't be deleted, we can hide them and get them out of sight.
This bloatware takes up 2-3GB of space we'll never get back, but users can hide or “disable” bloatware on the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. This way all those Amazon, Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile apps splashed throughout the app tray will be gone. We simply disable them all, and they disappear.
Start by going to Settings > Applications > App Manager > and simply select any and all pre-installed apps and tap “Disable”. They’ll no longer work, but won’t be in the application tray wasting space either. I disabled everything from Amazon, AT&T, AT&T Data Usage Manager, Lookout Mobile Security and a few others. Don’t remove too much or things you don’t understand, as the phone or certain features won’t work right if they’re disabled. If you want any back, just go to the same area and “enable” it.
These were just a few of many great tips that will allow Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge owners to do more with their phone, and stay tuned for more in the near future. Good luck, and enjoy.
