I said this, because most of the times when people root their device, its because they want to flash custom rom in it. Of course you can uninstall just about anything once you root your device let alone preloaded apps. Also backing up data could still result in issue because the previous cache files could come into conflict with the new update. So inroder to avoid this, follow the steps i just mentioned and follow without hesitation and you'll be safe. Sorry to burst your little bubble but you're not better than me hahahahha

Second, if you want to back-up your data just use "Smart Switch" ( It's easier to use! ). And lastly, don't act like you know better than me, I've been using android since Eclair!
PS: Please read the post where I replied on. He said he wanted to remove the "preloaded stuffs"(bloatwares), you cannot uninstall bloatwares without root that's why I suggested to root his device. Is it clear to you now?

Anonymous, 28 Jul 2016Root your device, then uninstall the bloatwares.Hahahahha if you root your device, you cant update official updates. If you're running out space then just copy videos, music, pic etc to your memory card or better PC. And for your already installed apps, First, download an app called 'apk extractor' from play store. Second, this app will allow you to extract any apps in your phone including system apps.(keep in mind that, extracting doesn't mean deleting. It's just copying the already installed apps and making them into apk files). Third, go to your file manager and look for the folder named, 'extracted app' either on your sd card or phone memory. And if its in phone's memory, just extract what ever apps you want to install after updating(not default apps that came with your phone but the apps you've manually installed). Lastly, cut the 'extracted app' folder and save it on your sd card or pc. Next just reset your phone, this should delete everything and roll your phone back just like when you bought it. Update and reinstall everything.
Can you help me, I want to buy a new phone but i don't understand much in cellphones. Can you tell me which one is better samsung galaxy j5, alcatel idol 4, samsung galaxy a3 or htc desire 825?
Thank you :D
