They not only clutter your home screen with apps you'll probably never use, but they're also wasting space on your internal storage and potentially draining battery.

Thankfully, that has finally changed.

How To: De-Bloating Your Samsung Galaxy Note 2: How to Delete Preloaded Android Apps for Good

The Google Play Store exists so you can download as many apps as your heart desires (and as your memory can hold). Sure, you may only use them once, but it's your choice—and isn't that what life is really about? With that said, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 already comes with a ton of preloaded apps from Google, Samsung, and your device carrier, like Yellow Pages and Google Earth—both of which I never use.
