The Note 7 is a mighty phone, but it’s hamstrung somewhat by the amount of bloatware that it comes with. Here’s how to get rid of them — to save space, simplify your app drawer and save your data allowance by preventing useless updates.
As we mentioned earlier this week, the Galaxy Note 7 comes with brand new Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
