Free up some memory and uninstall apps from your Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone. There are two ways you can uninstall apps. Just follow this tutorial.
Option 1 – From Settings
- Select “Apps” > “Settings“.
- Select “Device“.
- Select “Applications“
- Choose “Application manager“.
- Tap the application you wish to remove.
- Select Uninstall. Only downloaded apps will have the option to uninstall.
Apps that are pre-installed will offer the ability to disable the app. Selecting “Disable” won’t uninstall the app, but will prevent it from running at startup and from appearing on the app menu.
Option 2 – From Launcher
- Select Apps.
- Tap “Edit“.
- Select “Uninstall” or “Disable“.
This post applies to the SM-G930F, SM-G935F (Edge) models of the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone.

i have an galaxy 7 tab and every time i want to connect you tube it come up a window saying (there was a problem starting up. please check network connections, and check that the system time is set correctly.)
network is fine and so is the time settings, what can i do next?
I deleted a theme by picking a new one downloaded it and the one I wanted to delete was gone after it was downloaded.
Annoyed as heck says
There is no DT IGNITE on my Glalaxy S7, like some people on the net instruct to remove
so that surreptitious bloatware doesn’t get installed.
There’s nothing listed specifically as APPS MANANGER, either.
And, there is no “EDIT” button in my apps section.
How do I stop having bloatware installed in my S7, Android Version 8. ?
None of my screens look like the examples I see on the net, in order to perform this operation.
Thanks for help.
in option 1 when i selected apps i didn’t see another settings button
I want to delete all antivirus spyware from a galaxy eight permanently but it’s not letting me what am I doing wrong
Unfortunately there’s no way to delete the pre installed apps. When you disable them you are offered to uninstall all the updates & take it down to the smallest amount of memory. It’s frustrating & I wish the phones didn’t come with preinstalled games (I don’t play games on my phone at all) I have absolutely no use for the NFL app I’m consistently disabling on every new phone I get & on all my families phones & I don’t use the Android or Samsung pay features. Trust me. If there was a way to uninstall them I’d have found it!!! I know this didn’t help & I’m sorry. :-( I wish I had a better answer for you. Have a great day! ?
Neither of the two worked, in that some of the steps listed were not on my Samsung S7.
Doesn’t help with preloaded junk that they don’t allow you to use these steps.

You cannot uninstall the pre-installed apps without rooting the phone.
There has to be a way to remove pre-installed apps on the s7 active. I don’t want to just disable then, I want to remove them. They’re taking up memory that I want to use for other things. Everybody says they can’t be removed. But if it’s installed it can be uninstalling. Does anybody know how to do this without rooting the phone?
I have the same problem as Rosemary. My S7 doesn’t have a delete option in my settings for themes that I can find either. Is it under a different heading? Some of these themes hog memory and need to be deleted from time to time.
I have the new galaxy s7 phone. I bought a theme that I’d like to remove. I went into setting and tried to delete but there is no option to delete theme. Would you happen to know how I would be able to delete the theme?
