Disable the bloatware apps

Bloatware apps are the pre-installed apps that take up a huge amount of space and eat lots of battery and you probably won’t even use them, which is why you should disable them. To do so, follow the below steps.

  • From the application drawer press Menu Button and then select Uninstall/Disable Apps.
  • Each app that can possibly be disabled or uninstalled will now show a ‘minus’ sign.
  • Select the minus sign for all the application that you wish to disable.
  • A confirmation message would come up asking if you want to disable the applications, select Disable.

Optimize the TouchWiz UI (speed up Samsung Galaxy S5)

How many people do you know who use ChatON or Samsung Apps? The answer to that question would be nobody! These are the pre-installed apps that none of us uses, but they would be present on our Home Screens and would run in the background, which would result in more consumption of RAM and more Cache Memory. The solution for this is to disable all those apps. To do so, 

  • Go to the Home Screen (do this for all the home screen pages), press and hold the application that you do not use.
  • Now as you hold the app you would notice a Delete option at the top right side corner of the screen.
  • Hold the app and move it over to the Delete option that should remove the app from your Home Screen.

Close all the Apps running in the background

  • Go to Settings
  • Select Application Manager
  • Select Running Tab
  • Select the appropriate app and click STOP
