How to remove all the useless and annoying bloatware apps that come on this phone? This will be the first thing you will ask after buying the brand new Samsung Galaxy S6, or its brother, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. If you are a power user, than you know that every little thing makes a difference, especially when performance comes into place.

Over the years, Android has improved so much that lag has almost disappeared. The performance is excellent with no annoying lag issues. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge come with Samsung’s own Exynos processor. According to benchmarks, it is the fastest and most powerful chipset out of all, blowing the Snapdragon 810 out of the water.

Overall, both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are true powerhouses. No matter what you throw at them, it won’t be a problem for the flagship phones. Actually, the problem stays at the Touchwiz firmware of these devices. Touchwiz is the most criticized launcher or skin for being way too heavy for a normal phone to operate without any lag.

Samsung has heard all the bad reviews and decided to slim down the Touchwiz version that comes on the Galaxy S6 and its brother. Compared to previous flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 has noticeably less bloatware apps.
