The LG G Flex is an innovative smartphone in its own right but, like most other phones from LG or other OEMs, it comes loaded with a lot of stock apps pre-installed. Most of such apps are commonly referred to as bloatware. It's true that many of these system apps play a role in the overall performance of the device. The very fact, however, cannot be denied that after using the new device for some time, the users lose interest in them. Nobody wants his/her phone's app drawer to be populated with icons of the apps that are of no significant use. Such apps not only crowd the app drawer, but they also occupy a big portion of the phone's internal storage, keep eating RAM and battery by running in the background. Since the LG G Flex does support expandable memory slot, the concern for deleting the useless bloat apps becomes more feasible. If you have already got hold of the LG G Flex and, having checked it out for a while, are now planning to get rid of the apps that are of no use to you, we are here to help you. To save you from being confused about what apps to delete, we have prepared a list of apps that can be safely removed from the device.
