    S4: bloatware

    How's the bloatware? Is it easily removable (without root)?

    I want to hold out for a Note III, but thinking that SGS4 Google Edition will be my next phone.

    That Google edition is expensive though (well so is the regular one if bought through T-Mo), but one can get the regular one from a third-party retailer for much less with a two year contract extension. At Costco for example, $149.

    It is only "bloatware" if it is useless to the user, advertising, etc. One shouldn't necessariy consider all Samsung software on their phones as "bloatware".

    Do users who have the regular version of the phone consider all the Samsung software and customizations on it to be "bloatware"? (I'm just asking, I don't have the phone myself, although thinking about getting one.) Or do you use some of those features and find them useful?
