    Really hope I can remove the Facebook app and those like it. I've seen the articles mention that you can remove Microsoft, Google, and Samsung apps so my hopes are high.

    If they allow for the AT&T stuff to be removed as opposed to disabled, I'm going to be pretty excited. This phone just keeps getting better.

    Well the odds of it happening are beyond slim, but who knows nowadays. I didn't expect this level of trimming from Samsung to begin with.

    Droid Life has an article saying that his has been normal and the S5 had the same ability. I'm sort of new to the bloatware coming from Nexus devices, but the T-Mobile addition of WiFi calling is one thing I'm looking forward to.

    Yeah, carrier bloat, which is way worse to me, isn't going anywhere.

    Samsung will allow you to remove unwanted 'bloatware' on the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge [Update: not quite] | Android Central

    Update: According to the folks at MobileSyrup, it looks like you won't be able to fully remove pre-installed apps after all. Tapping on the "minus" button for pre-loaded apps (even those from Microsoft) simply disables them, rather than completely removing them.

    Doors that mean it will no longer show in the app drawer?

    I have had many baked in apps (bloat) disabled for some time now, I just went to look in AppManager to check, and I had forgot how much I had hidden/disabled.

    disable is good enough a solution. Here is the bloat I disabled, my battery gets so much better without these bloats.

    Does disabling also prevent the apps from coming up as needing an update?

    Wow, you disabled pretty much everything google. I need Chrome, Maps, Search in google apps. I disabled most of carrier bloats and S-voice though.

    I'm less worried about bloatware than I am about service restrictions. Disabling bloatware is good enough for me because most if not all bloatware is burned into an unmodifiable partition. So even if one could delete bloatware, the partition wouldn't be usable for anything else.

    What concerns me is whether there are service restrictions. I haven't been following this lately because my last several phones have been international models. But I vaguely remember howls of pain from at&t and Verizon users because they couldn't do... What?

    I'm going to have to get my S6 Edge from at&t because I refuse to pay over US$1,000 for a phone.
