    I got the Lollipop update last night and my only complaint - thus far - is that *&$^%&% Flipboard has reappeared and I can't delete it,. The icon is on my Apps tray and if I grab it like I'd do with anything else there's no trashcan icon.

    Dear Samsung...... I don't like bloatware, I don't want Flipboard and forcing an app that I don't want on me does not make me any more likely to use it !!

    I think it may depend on your carrier. I'm on Verizon, and even though I can't delete it completely from my phone, I was still able to disable the app.

    I'm on the latest stock Samsung firmware, OD3, for the international model G900F.

    Settings > Application Manager > All > Flipboard... disable. See screenshot...

    Go to your app drawer and hit the menu icon in the top right corner. Select hide/disable apps. Then click on flipboard along with any other bloatware you don't want to see.

    You can't uninstall those apps, but you can at least make them go away and disable them so that they don't continue to receive updates.

    Afraid your stuck with it at stock. Like other users have said you can disable it. I'm running a S5 with this installed but disabled.
    I'll likely root this phone soon anyway, doing so will allow you to get rid of it, but will void any warranty (you can unroot but thats best left to another thread).

    Also upped my old rooted S2 with lollipop (resurrection remix) thankfully it was missing all of the Samsung bloatware like Flipboard (Also runs blazingly well for such an old phone).

    Hello and welcome to Android Central steevan bablu!

    No system instability by disabling that particular app.

    I'm posting just to pass along information that I've not seen anywhere yet. Flipboard can be uninstalled on your samsung. If you become a extreme problem in their comments section which was my intension. Flipboard will uninstall your app by remote. I can tell you I did this and last night the app has disappeared. Swipe left gets a blank home screen with a message at bottom "No app installed".
