When you buy a prebuilt phone from a major vendor, you expect it to operate right out of the box without having to do a lot of work to get it configured for Internet browsing, e-mail, document writing, etc. Thus, most bought phones have pre-installed Android operating systems, so you don’t have to spend hours going through the full setup procedure, instead usually requiring only a few minutes revolving around answering questions about your time zone, Internet Service Provider (ISP), how to configure automatic software updates, etc.
Most phones do not just come with an operating system installed but a broad range of extra software. These may include security programs, basic graphics viewers and editors, multimedia software, trial games, and more. Besides this basic software, the installed web browser may also come with a toolbar or two for quick access to various search engines.
While some relish this included software, treating it as a free bonus when purchasing a phone, others prefer a cleaner phone, free of extraneous applications and utilities. Thus, some have labeled this pre-installed software as bloat ware, calling it such because they feel the software is excessive and fills up the phone’s RAM and processing power prematurely.
Bloatware software may require a large portion of the phones’ RAM and ROM space, meaning you may be able to store fewer files than expected. Also, portions of these applications may run continuously, using your phone’s CPU time, causing your phone to run slower.
Because of this, anyone who purchases any android phone from a big name manufacturer should consider spending an afternoon of getting rid of this bloat ware. To remove bloatware is a very smart idea in preventing your system firing up all of these programs at once, because the bloat ware chews up entirely too much of your system resources and will, in turn, put added wear on your processor. A fresh boot will allow you to get the most out of your brand new phone as well it will help you to remove bloatware apps that you may not need.
To remove bloatware, you will have to uninstall it from your system altogether. If you’re using the Android operating system, you can disable these items in the Startup and Services tabs of your Purify app feature. This will bar these programs from loading at the startup of your operating system.
It’s probably wise to set aside a few hours to remove bloatware after you get settled. It’s also a good idea to tweak your Android operating systems including unnecessary services that slow down your system as well. For some reason known only to them, software manufacturers seem to adore forcing users to open all of their programs at the same time. Your phone delivers far better performance when you only open the programs you intend to use.
