Can anyone advise me how to remove bloatware without risking my mobile phone becoming "bricked?" My phone is slow. I disable programmes that cannot be removed without root access but they start again on their own.

Thanks in advance.

If you root the phone, warranty is void. Try Settings>Apps>Choose an app>Uninstall updates>after it does/Disable

Some Android bloatware can be uninstalled like a normal application, but others can only be disabled. Which is somewhat the same thing, but will remain on the device and take up a little bit of storage space.
