Samsung sued for too many apps pre-installed on your devices

We have often been surprised by the limited amount of storage available on a newly purchased device. The advertised value on the box of the device is not fully accessible to the user and not always the fault can be attributed to the operating system. Preinstalled applications have become a source of money for many manufacturers, and users must manage the space available on their devices by performing a series of maneuvers. However, if it depends on the Shanghai Consumer Rights Protection Commission, this practice could take a different course. Check out details below.

The Chinese commission is accusing Samsung of selling devices with memory capabilities far below what it says on the box. According to the agency, the Galaxy Note 3 (Chinese model) has 44 applications preinstalled without any mention on the product packaging or instructions for uninstalling them. The charges were made based on complaints from various users dissatisfied with the presence of various applications, such as dictionaries, games, shopping portals, among other software running in the background. In addition to Samsung, Oppo was also warned by the commission for containing approximately 71 pre-installed applications on the X9007 model.

The bloatwares have become a common practice among many manufacturers, primarily as a source of income from business partnerships. However, many users are increasingly looking for devices with fewer pre-installed apps, such as the Motorola Moto G case. Both manufacturers have up to 15 days to respond to the allegations, and after this placement, the Shanghai court will settle. a date to judge the cases.

And, does your device also have many pre-installed apps?
