Remove bloatware on Google Nexus 4? Seriously, is that needed? Well, it is up to personally choice to define bloatware. For me, I still don’t use some of the stock Google Android 4.2 Jelly Bean features. And some of them are loaded and running by default. It uses up a bit system resources like RAM and CPU. System apps like Currents, Earth, Google+, Local, Maps, Movie Studio and Navigation are considered bloatware to me. Therefore, it is better to disable them if you are not using them at all.
How to disable built-in system application on Nexus 4?
- Go to Settings.
- Select Apps.
- Go to ALL tab.
- Select the application that you want to disable.
- Click on Disable.
- Select OK to confirm. (Choose OK if prompted again)
- That’s it.
Note – Disable those built-in applications that you know only else your Nexus 4 might not working properly. And those applications will be located at the very bottom of the list after disabled. You still can enable them back any time you wish.
