Your next Android phone will not have as numerous pre-installed apps

When you buy a new phone, it is very annoying to have a lot of built-in apps on your phone pre-installed but unnecessary. The worst thing is that some android phone manufacturer don’t allow their users to uninstall those bult-in apps. Here’s the good news, if you never use Google Play Games, Google Play Books, Google+ or Google Newsstand,  none of them will be installed on your next Android phone. The suite of apps used to be mandatory for any manufacturer that wanted to sell a device with essential apps like Google Play and Gmail, but new partner guidelines have taken them off of the required pre-install list. Put simply, this means there will be just a little more free space on the next Android smartphone you buy. And if you do use those apps? They’re still available but you’ll just have to download them from the Google Play store to use them.
