Verizon LG G3 (VS985) Bloatware apps list – Safe to remove list

When your Verizon LG G3 turned on for the first time, you might find a lot of pre-installed apps on the app drawer, you might be familiar and have used a couple of apps, but you’ll find one or more apps that you do not know what it does. Many folks refered it as bloatware apps, since the majority of them are unwanted apps and just make the phone looks cluttered and fulfill the internal storage.


Although the VZW LG G3 (VS985) has a huge internal storage space – 32 GB, but the user accessible storage is undoubtedly smaller than that, and by getting rid of some of the bloatware apps will free up some space and you can use it to save other contents. Some bloatware apps even running background process, this might takes up CPU and RAM resources, although not significant.
