MrBing, 01 Oct 2020Lol 🤣What's so funny in removing apps? Or is your lack to complete the task the reason of your laughter?

I've done it ages and instead of foolishly lol'ing, I'm actually happy with increased performance...

" Great! These tech giants deserve to get thrown down to the ground and crushed. They have too much power over people and the market. "

That is exactly what the police do to whoever they feel like and you're here ranting about tech companies being somehow brutally powerful which is totally untrue? Just wow.. Your comprehension of power over people is evidently minuscule since you can't realize the fact you're not forced to use any of their services yet you still do and foolishly resort to whining with some sort of imaginary goal that you're going to achieve something...

omega lol...

And which makers allow you to uninstall bloatware. I have an Android One Nokia, and it recently started automatically installing YouTube and Chrome silently in the background each night while I was asleep. Had to root to uninstall it permanently. These manufacturers don't care about the data that we pay for, our limited storage space or our rights to privacy. Obviously teens don't care about such things, but some of us do not live of daddies money and value our rights to privacy.

2 questions:
1. Does this apply to the UK as I know we get the European models too?
2. Will this ability come via an OTA update?
