Pre-installed apps and games that take up storage space and make your phone’s battery run out faster than it should while taking up a considerable chunk of your data allowance is a common annoyance. There are plenty of reasons you wouldn’t want certain apps to remain installed on your phone. These apps might have come pre-installed on your phone, it might have been provided by your manufacturer, your mobile network or may have come as part of your Android device itself.

While you can reduce the ill effects or drawbacks from these apps, removing these apps isn’t that easy. There are two different things that might occur depending on whether your device is rooted or not.

Non-Rooted Devices

Although deleting pre-installed apps isn’t possible in most cases, you can still disable them. In order to do this, you should head over to Settings > Apps & notifications > See all X apps. You can select the app you don’t want here and then click on the Disable button. This will make the app revert back to its initial version and block it so that it will not show up on your phone. Although it stays installed and takes up space, it will not run.
