Unwanted apps take up vital memory space. Thankfully they’re super easy to get rid of, but bear in mind that you can’t always remove pre-installed apps.

Samsung Galaxy Devices

Simply go to the home screen and select ‘apps’. When the menu appears, click ‘edit’ and press the minus sign beside any of the apps you wish to remove.

Nexus Devices

Go to the home screen and select ‘all applications’. Scroll down and select ‘settings’, then select ‘apps’. Scroll across to ‘all’ before tapping on the app you want to remove and selecting ‘uninstall’.

HTC Devices

On the app screen, press and hold the app you want to delete and drag it towards ‘uninstall’.
