How to remove bloatware on Samsung Galaxy S10 without root [Uninstall Samsung Apps]

As we all know that Android is based on Open Source Project by Google and is easily customizable. While the smartphone OEMs provide their own custom skin on their devices with Android versions. But except for the Stock Android, most of the Android smartphone manufacturers provide a lot of pre-installed apps which we called Bloatware. Order to get rid of the pre-installed system apps from your Android device mostly requires root access. Sometimes some of the third-party apps can be easily uninstalled as well. Here in this guide, we’ll share with you How to remove bloatware on Samsung Galaxy S10 without root [Uninstall Samsung Apps].

Samsung has released its 2019 flagship lineup back in February such as the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+, S10e, and S10 5G. All these models are quite good and justify their price segment. The Galaxy S10 series come with a punch-hole display with so many unique features. Finally, Samsung’s latest and improved One UI is a great addition to its devices based on Android 9 Pie.

Samsung Still Pushes Bloatware on One UI Devices

But Samsung needs to improve the pre-installed apps as well even in One UI. It basically reduces the user experience, some unnecessary or not so useful apps also installed which users don’t like. Even the Galaxy S10 series devices come with pre-installed system apps which we can say bloatware. Now, if someone wants to remove that bloatware, they can’t do it easily. The apps can be disabled via the app management but it can’t be uninstalled quickly. Bloatware can cause low space and low RAM processes at the background as well. Here in this guide, we’ll use ADB to completely remove/uninstall bloatware from Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, or Galaxy S10e without root.

To use this method, there is no need to unlock bootloader or root. Your KNOX security and warranty won’t void in this method due to ADB command. This method is completely safe but GetDroidTips won’t be responsible for any kind of damage or issue occurs to your device during or after the process. Do it at your own risk.

Requirement:

  • A PC/Laptop is required to use ADB commands.
  • A USB Cable.
  • Your Samsung Galaxy S10 series device

Steps to remove bloatware on Samsung Galaxy S10 without root [Uninstall Samsung Apps]

You need to install ADB and Fastboot on your Windows, macOS PC/laptop at first. Once you have done this, just follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall bloatware from your Samsung Galaxy S10 device.

  • Go to Settings -> About phone -> Software information on your Samsung Galaxy S10.
  • Tap on the ‘Build number’ for 7 times until you see the “Developer mode has been turned on” message on the screen.
  • Now, go back to Settings -> Developer options and enable the ‘USB Debugging’ option.
  • Connect your Galaxy S10 device to the PC via the USB cable.
  • Once your device gets connected, open the folder where the ADB and Fastboot tool installed. [This PC: Local Disk (C): ADB]
  • While holding the Shift key, right-click on an empty space inside the folder -> Select the ‘Open PowerShell window here’ option from the menu.
  • Enter the following command to verify the connection via ADB:

adb devices

  • Now, you should be prompted with the “Allow USB Debugging?” message on your device display. Tap on “Yes”.
  • This will verify your device and show you a device ID on your PC under command prompt. If it doesn’t, then make sure to install the Samsung USB drivers on your PC properly.
  • Now, open the ADB Shell by entering the following command:

adb shell

  • Type the following command and hit enter to uninstall the pre-installed system app/bloatware from your Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+/S10e:

pm uninstall -k –user 0 <app-package-name>

Make sure to replace “<app-package-name>” with the package name of the system app (Refer to the list in the previous section) that you want to uninstall.

For example, if you want to uninstall Twitter, the following commands you need to use:

pm uninstall -k –user 0 com.twitter.katana

pm uninstall -k –user 0 com.twitter.system

pm uninstall -k –user 0 com.twitter.appmanager

pm uninstall -k –user 0 com.twitter.services

  • After entering the command, ADB will automatically remove/uninstall the specific system app and will show you a “Success” message.
  • You will need to repeat the commands for different package names in order to uninstall apps completely. Just change the app name and the rest of the lines will be the same.
  • You’re good to go. Now, you have successfully uninstalled all the preloaded apps from your Galaxy S10 device running on One UI.

The process should not take long to execute. Once the process is completed, you can exit the command shell directly and remove your USB cable as well. Now, restart your handset for once and you’re done.

Now, if you check the system apps on your phone, it is already gone. Hope this guide will help you a lot if you’re a new user.

  1. I have deleted all the things I want deleted this way, but now I can’t remap the bixby button the normal way inside the phone.

    Is there a way to remap it using the same adb command line method?

  2. Is there a guide of how to reinstall apps, for instance, Bixby? I would like to retain button functionality to be reprogrammed with another app.

  3. i guess it is the font of this site that’s a little confusing. Before the word ‘user’ its 2 hyphens/dashes and before the letter ‘k’ it is 1 hyphen/dash.
