Gluttony is common in humans as well as in things controlled by humans. The companies that make wonderful android devices might or might not be overeating but they definitely overfeed the devices that they make with lots and lots of apps, most of which never get used. Then there is rooting. The most common reason for us to root our devices is for an enhanced performance. The second most common reason is to get rid of the unwanted pre-installed applications,
If you agree with me and are wondering how to go about it, there is this app which is called NoBloat – because overeating is bad, for us and our devices. And consuming things that we don’t even like is the worst. Thus, NoBloat is your phone’s personal dietician who will make sure that your phone does not bloat up.
NoBloat lets you delete unwanted apps that come pre-installed with your phone. Simply select the bloatware that you want to get rid of and click delete. NoBloat can automatically place backups on your external storage which you can restore at any time. Remember, though: Always have a backup of your phone. Important features might break when deleting system apps. Using the blacklist from the full version, you can swiftly get rid of all bloatware after installing a new ROM. When wiping your phone’s data, you can export your blacklist to import it on your new ROM.

Here are a few things to keep in mind while using NoBloat:
