Remove Bloatware Samsung Galaxy S20

Bijgewerkt op: jan 19

Do you also find that the Samsung Galaxy S20 phone has too many applications on it that you don't use? Or does the battery run out faster than you'd expect?


Then removing bloatware may be a good solution. Note that this is for advanced users. Be sure you know what you're doing!


To remove the bloatware, we will be using adb (Android Debug Bridge) over USB. Connect you device using ADB afterwards you must enable USB debugging in the device system settings, under Developer options.


On Android 4.2 and higher, the Developer options screen is hidden by default. To make it visible, go to Settings > About phone and tap Build number seven times. Return to the previous screen to find Developer options at the bottom.

On some devices, the Developer options screen might be located or named differently.


Now get the latest Android SDK Platform-Tools from here.



Unpack the resulting file using software like 7-zip, then open a command prompt or terminal. On Windows 10 you can hold the shift key and then right click in an open area in the folder where ADB.exe is located to open a command prompt.


Now follow these steps:


  1. Launch the Command prompt or PowerShell window.

  2. Connect your device to the computer using USB.

  3. Now, type the following ADB command and hit the Enter key. Keep an eye on your phone’s screen as you do it and Allow USB debugging when prompted. adb devices

  4. Execute the following ADB shell commands. The first for the list of all apps, and the second one for the list of all system apps. #1 Get the list of all apps adb shell pm list packages #2 Get the list of system apps only adb shell pm list packages -s #3 Get the list of all Samsung apps adb shell pm list packages | grep 'samsung' (‘pm’ in the above commands stands for “package manager”

  5. You’ll now have the list of package names of all Samsung apps and other Android apps installed on your device.

  6. Type adb shell

Now you can start removing apps by using the command pm uninstall -k --user 0 [Package Name]


You can use the list of apps you generated in step 4 above, or use below list for apps that I've found can be safely uninstalled.


Uninstalled the wrong app? You can use the command below to reinstall an app cmd package install-existing [Package Name]


Note that you should not uninstall GMS, if your device is malfunctioning you can reinstall GMS using the following commands:


cmd package install-existing com.google.android.gms


cmd package install-existing com.google.android.gms.location.history


cmd package install-existing com.sec.android.app.launcher
