  1. Thanks
    I found similar issue with another brand new phone.
    If I did not agree with G’s terms and condition, the new phone first time either will not be allowed to proceed. Yet I did not intend to buy a G phone. The phone was excessivey bloated, then bloated more after going through entire set-up process.
    The factory re-set.
    This brand new phone is now is now back in it’s box waiting for a solution to this BS.
    Hopefully your advice can work on by this other brand phone, bloated with stuff we don’t ever use.

    Is there a phone brand that does not come with bloatware and does not come with terms n conditions dictated by another 3rd company which provides the bloated apps ?
    In other words, will Samsung ever have the balls to tell Google to fuck off ?
