Samsung manufactures several different Android devices, but the method of removing applications is identical in all of them. Uninstalling applications is part of the Android operating system, so most Android phones use the same steps. Uninstalling unwanted apps frees up space in your phone's memory. You can uninstall any third-party application you have installed on the phone. Samsung doesn't allow you to uninstall applications that come pre-installed on the device.


Step 1

Press the "Menu" button on the main screen of your Samsung phone.
