    My contract is expiring in about 5 months so I'm going to be on the market for a new phone soon. I was wondering if there are any Android phones that come without any pre-installed bloatware applications.

    I know Apple is able to negotiate zero bloatware on their phones with carriers, but I'm not sure if Android has any devices that just contain a clean OS and nothing else.

    Any suggestions? Phone maker is not really important, I'll go with any brand.

    Depends on what you call bloatware. Some people consider Google apps bloatware (like Google Play Music, Google Play Books, etc.), but then you'd also have to consider the Apple Appstore and iTunes to be bloatware as well.

    The Nexus line is still the most bloatware-free phone (although now that carriers are branding the Nexus 6, I'm not sure if they might be sneaking some carrier bloatware in there). OnePlus One is another one to consider.
