Few days ago, T-Mobile already confirms the arrival of HTC One S. Both of us know that T-Mobile is one of the US carrier that love to load their handset with tons of useless applications. They are usually called as bloatware and we are 100% clear that T-Mo will pack HTC One S with similar things.
However, since the handset is running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, you can hide all those apps and completely remove them from the background process. In addition, you’ll also get some extra space on your home screen! Great isn’t it? Today, we will teach you how to do that.
1. Navigate to Settings > Apps > All. This step will view all available apps in your HTC One S
2. Tap on the name of an application that you want to hide/disable in the background process
3. A new button named “Disable” should appear, tap on it
4. Voila! the app that you’ve just tapped will now complete disappear from the home screen, app drawer, and running list.
Please note that this method is not completely remove the app. It’s just hide and stop the process. This is mean that all of those bloatware will still take some space on your precious internal data storage. Well, it’s not like that we’re up against pre-loaded app. If the apps were useful, then it should be a great help for new user that is not too familiar with Android system. They don’t have to navigate around Google Play to look for some great app.
However, in T-Mobile’s case, all of the pre-loaded apps are nothing but spam. It’s just the carrier’s attempt to grab more money from the customers. Personally, we never thought that we will take advantage from some app like T-Mobile Mall or Game Service. Of course there’s a way to completely remove them, which involve rooting attempt. But this method is not for everyone. Especially for user who still want to save their warranty and only possess single android smartphone for daily use.
