    hope Samsung can offer us an option to delete the pre installed programmes to free up memory on the phone would be way better im sure samsung are aware of this maybe they can release an update which can delete the bloatware we dont even need or use.

    Welcome to Android Central Mathew.
    This will most likely never happen. If you want to delete Bloat from your device you need to Root (like jailbreak) your device and delete the applications manually.

    that would not be bloatware, that would be the same as what they have in the samsung store, just applications. if its something on your device that they dont give as an option to get rid or its either 1) the carrier put it on there and they want you to use it or 2) samsung wants you to use and not uninstall. Either way if they wanted to give you the option of getting rid of it , they would have given you the option from the start.

    If you root your phone, you can remove them, but its their phone so they have to advertise and use their products on it

    To Matthew Garrett, you can disable any of the apps you don't want ( just not uninstall them) by going to Menu->Settings->More->Application Manager->ALL-> and clicking on the application you want to disable and clicking disable, it's in the upper right corner of the screen

    Ya... do this... or just root your phone. This is android... if you don't like something on your device... you have the power to change it. To the OP... stop crying and complaining.

    The bloatware isn't used by your internal memory. It is stored in system files.

    As far as I know system does use internal memory unless this had changed with the GS4

    Matt, here's a thread concerning apps (bloatware) you can safely remove.

    Apps you can remove

    Root, Install Titanium Back Up (Arguably The Most Important App For Rooted Users) Freeze the apps for a week or 2, If no problems you can then delete them. Back em all up first tho...

    NOTE: There's some confusion about what internal memory is here.
    This device has 2 GB of internal memory (RAM). It's where app's etc run.
    This device has 16 GB of internal storage (sdcard0) of which System and bloatware (out of the box) consume a little more than 7 GB's.
    It's PART of this 7 + GB's of internal storage you can recover by removing "bloatware".
    If you decide to pursue this do your homework. As there aren't carrier specific sub forums (dumb IMO) for this device MAKE SURE anything you do is for your version (carrier) of the GS IV or you could end up with an expensive paper weight.
    REMEMBER, ask questions! And Search the forum for already addressed subjects.

    Hope this helps.

    Disabling only removes the icons. It doesn't free up any memory. These mobile device people really get on my nerves thinking we want all this garbage that we aren't going to use. Eye Tracking??? Really? S Travel and S Health hubs??? You go to be kidding me. Who makes these ridiculous decisions?
