    Welcome to the forums!

    I've moved your post here to the Apollo root section.

    To answer your question, yes, you can remove some of the bloatware. To do this, you need to get the equivalent of an admin account on a PC. In Android, the admin account is named root, and the act of getting access to it is called rooting.

    The steps for this vary by make and model, but here you will find the right steps and advice for your phone from other Apollo owners.

    Happy rooting! :)
