A Consumer Rights protection committee in China recently sued Samsung (and Oppo) for not allowing users uninstall preloaded applications. It appears the case is making headway, because Samsung has agreed to make a patch available at point of purchase. This will enable you delete some of the preloaded apps to free up internal storage.
On the Samsung China website, they confirmed they would allow customers to uninstall unwanted applications on all of its smartphones from henceforth, this includes the latest Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. For now though, it appears this service will only be available in China.
In a statement to Korea Times, Samsung said :
Chinese consumers using Samsung’s Galaxy phones can now delete applications that were pre-installed because Samsung Electronics plans to provide software patches so things get done from next month.”
