You buy that brand new smartphone or tablet that advertises X amount of storage space only to find it really only has about one-third of that space remaining.
The problem? While a little bit of room is naturally lost to formatting and system files, bloatware can also take up extra space on your device.
What is bloatware exactly? In short it is any pre-bundled software that comes with your Android device that isn’t necessary to enjoy your handset or tablet.
If you buy a subsidized handset or tablet, bloat comes in two forms: carrier-included bloat and manufacturer-included bloat.
To be fair, not all pre-installed apps are bad. Some manufacturer software can be useful, but if you find that you never use any of these included apps, why not regain the space? This is especially important with budget devices, as they might have only advertised 2-8GB of space to begin with, and yet you end up with even less than that.
So what can you do? Actually removing bloat is easy, but you will need a rooted device to do it.
