So much bloatware o my Korean Galaxy S3 SHV-E210K
Okay, so I have been a Symbian user for quite a while now and I was given a Korean S3 from my father.
My Nokia N8 was getting a little old, and I thought it would be nice to try Android for a change, especially since I was given the S3 for free.
When I first turned on, the phone upgraded it self from Android 4.1.2 to 4.3 by itself.
As I started using it, I was surprised with the amount of bloatware on the phone.
All the Google Apps, Samsung Apps, Olleh Apps, and other Korean apps are all useless to me.
At least I can "hide" them in the apps menu, but there are 4 applications that are permanently stuck in the task manager menu.
It is getting very annoying, since there is no way for me to get rid of them. Now I am wondering why Galaxies are so popular.
Secondly, this is my home screen on my Nokia N8.
- There is clock/date widget
- Music player
- Daily agenda
and a pop up fave apps menu.
I like this as I do not like flipping through multiple homescreens.
Now on my Galaxy, there is no way that I can fit the clock widget, daily agenda, AND music player all in one screen.
All in all, I am not all too impressed with Android so far, but I do like how fast Galaxy S3 is, and I am willing to give it a go.
So any solutions to my issues such as
1) Deleting [inappropriate language removed by moderator] apps issue from Samsung, Network provider, and Google?
2) Fitting an agenda, mail, and music player all in one screen?
I do have an experience flashing custom firmware on my Symbian device; I only did that since Nokia discontinued their support. But Galaxy S3 is still a fairly recent device and still supported. However, I am willing to try a custom firmware again.
