Question Remove default apps without root?

I just upgraded to this phone recently. Is there any way to remove the junk apps I do not want (Google+ for a start!) without rooting? Being it's brand new I don't want to mess about with rooting yet, unless there is a really simple way to do it like there was on my Xperia X10 (Flashtool)

Any suggestions would be great

I think you can not complete the operation without rooting process. Most android phones require rooting to uninstall the default apps.

Thanks for your reply. How would I go about this? It's like when you buy a laptop and they load it up with all the junk you don't want, but at least on a new laptop or PC I have the option to uninstall what I don't want or need.

If you go into, settings, apps, all, and then select the ones you want to disable on some of them there should be a button that says "disable" press that and it should disable them for you, but it only works for some of them

The Sony Xperia S doesn’t differ too much from the Ion: it features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 12MP Exmor R camera sensor, and a 720p display, only here it is 4.3-inches in size. If it looks familiar, it’s because we have seen this... Read More
