Verizon Testing Unwanted App Removal on LG G3

LG G3

Verizon Wireless is trialling a new policy on the LG G3 that allows owners to remove bloatware.

Like many smartphones, the G3 ships with preloaded applications selected by Verizon. Device owners have no say in which apps are preloaded and may find them useless or uninteresting. Typically, preloaded apps cannot be removed from smartphones. That changes with the LG G3.

Per Verizon, preloaded “applications can be completely and entirely uninstalled by the customer via the standard uninstall process.” Customers need to use the built-in Android app manager to delete any unwanted apps. Deleting apps frees phones of clutter and clears valuable storage space.

Verizon didn’t say if it will expand the trial to other devices.
