Pre-Installed Apps

If you’re looking for a way to uninstall preinstalled apps that your carrier installed, there isn’t an easy way to do this. You’ll have to be able to gain root access on the Note 5. Once you gain root access, you’ll be able to install and uninstall any app you like. If not, pre-installed apps will be on the device and the option to uninstall the app will not be available. You will only be able to freeze them. You can use this app to completely disable these apps if you like.This post applies to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 model SM-N920.
