    Just discovered this and it may come across as useful. If you used the app drawer to disable any bloatware (I noticed this mainly with apps that have updates installed) and go into the application manager to enable them, pushing the "Enable" button actually continues to disable them completely (uninstalling the updates and so forth). Seems like a bug as far as that button is concerned but probably done that way as a convenience to those just looking for a fast way to disable bloat without having to go through all the confirmation screens.

    Can anybody confirm so that I know it's not my phone being crazy?

    On AT&T, I selected the "Enable" option on a disabled app, the button changed to "Disable".

    Try disabling an app with updates installed from the app drawer and then going into the application manager and pushing the Enable button.

    What does that accomplish? The apps are already disabled in the App,Drawer.

    On my AT&T S6 selecting Enable just causes the button to change to Disable. There is a separate button I can select if I want to uninstall the updates to the disabled app.

    Hmmm, my S6 doesn't do that. Hitting Enable just enables the app again. From your settings menu it looks like you have the international version though; I have a US S6 so the software is a slight bit different.

    It's the T-Mobile version.

    Ah, I didn't know that T-Mobile hasn't messed with the settings menu like, at least, AT&T and Verizon did. Yeah, my S6 doesn't have this issue. I don't know if the theme you have could have caused some sort of hitch up, I just run stock TouchWiz. I wouldn't think a theme could cause an issue like that.

    Just tried it and mine does not do what it showed in the video...clicking "enable" simply just enables the app again
    It must be something with your phone, or the T-Mobile version of the phone

    Weird. Hopefully it's a T-Mobile thing because I already factory reset my phone once. Regardless, it's not something that hinders the experience.

    What app did you use to record your phone screen if I may ask?

    It's called Lollipop Screen Recorder... https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...creenrecording

    Thanks for the video. Wonder why AT&T didn't include this option?
