Every phones comes with bloatware like MX Taka Tak, Dailyhunt, Josh etc which you can uninstall .My Galaxy app can be disabled. That leaves only Galaxy Store and Galaxy Themes. I admit Galaxy store is really annoying, but when you look at a MI/Xiaomi phone there are apps like MI store, MI pay, Mi video(full of bloatwares and ads), MI file manager, Music player(full of ads) and other google bloatwares which you cannot uninstall. In the end Xiaomi has bloatwares and adwares like MSA app.

Then you have to turn off the My Galaxy, Galaxy Store and Galaxy Themes notifications. Then you have to uninstall around 10 pre-installed apps some being MX Taka Tak, Dailyhunt, Josh. So what's the reason to pay a premium for Samsung if you have to face all this

Cleaning the house after previous owners left it dirty is a physical task and might take day or 2 to complete.
You are so lazy to compare that to removing bloatware which doesn't require any energy just 5 min from you. You have no real argument there.

Radeon, 02 Feb 2021This phone's UI still lags despite sporting powerful S... moreExactly ! I have noticed this too. Apps reload a lot while switching and there's a bit of stuttering. Plus the phone has very low 5G bands, so not sure of its future proof-ness. But, the biggest thing I hate is how big and bulky it is ( it WEIGHS 215 grams), your fingers hurt after holding it for more than 20 minutes.
I regret not buying something compact, like the Nord (184g), or waiting a few weeks for Samsung A52 5G (around 180g)

To put things in a perspective for those saying this phone represents a sales hit....

The iPhone 11 pro is placed 10th in the 'best selling phones of H1 2020' with sales figure of 6.7 million phones sold in the first 6 months of 2020. Accounting for the pandemic etc etc. So that's roughly equivalent to 13 million phones for the entire year. Or about a million phones a month globally.

How do 182000 phone sales in a month count as a hit? When Xiaomi puts out figures for Poco C3 they say 1 million phones sold in 3 months (they don't give the INR figure because it is low since the phone is inexpensive). Similarly they don't mention the units sold for the Mi 10i but the INR figure (because unit sales are low and yet sales figure in INR is high).

Trust me this phone for all its hype is a dud.

Assembled != Manufactured.
I don't blame them too much though, because "Make in India" at this point is pretty much DOA.

As for the bloatware comments, you can delete the APKs that you cannot easily uninstall via ADB commands or a couple of debloater packages.
Think of it as...you moving into a new house and the previous owners have left their trash all over the floor, walls and the toilets. It's not that you cannot clean the place up if you tried hard enough, but the question is should you have to clean others' sheet up inside your new house?

That's way more bloatware compared to the ones on my Mi 9 (on MIUI 12).
