Huawei Wants Your Opinion On Pre-Installed Apps, Bloatware

Android / Mobile / Tech

One of the consistent complaints from some Android users is the amount of pre-installed apps that come with their new devices. Pre-installed apps are sometimes referred to as “bloatware” and can be a real pain to have to deal with, particularly if you can’t uninstall them. Sometimes companies pre-install apps like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram because they feel they’re doing the customer a favor if more popular apps are already there. Often times pre-installed apps consist of the manufactures own alternatives to Google apps and you usually aren’t able to uninstall those (even though in most cases you can disable them).

Now Huawei is asking you, the consumer, what your feelings about pre-installed apps are. It’s a simple one question survey with three choices and it might be worth the time to go check it out. It seems Huawei is concerning itself with what customers want and don’t want on their devices. This could be a step forward for other manufacturers to follow and learn from. Personally I rather my Android device come loaded with Google’s core apps and that’s it. Let the users decide what is going to be installed on their device. If your moving from one device to another as long as you’ve backed up, you should be able to get back everything you had installed anyway.

Let’s hope that Huawei gets a good amount of votes here and we’ll find out what the public at large thinks about pre-installed apps. Hit the link below to go to their blog and vote.
