Remove Bloatware or Debloat on Galaxy S10, S10 Plus or S10E

With the beginning of a new decade, Samsung also changed the mnemonics of its popular Galaxy S-series phones and went ahead with the name Galaxy S20 series. There is a total of 3 devices, i.e. the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. However, the last year’s flagship, the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus or S10E are still a good package and if you do not want to shed almost $1000 for the new Galaxy S20 series, then you can still buy the Galaxy S10 series for a great deal.
