    Well, this seems unfair (and a bit ironic). Apparently, Samsung was sued by a Chinese consumer rights committee, and now they will be forced to allow customers to uninstall pre-loaded apps from Samsung devices. Samsung was sued after the committee found 24 of the 44 pre-installed applications on a Galaxy Note 3 were required to use the smartphone.

    On the Samsung China website, it was made clear that Samsung will allow customers to remove preloaded unwanted applications on all of its smartphones from now on. It's ironic that this happened in China first. The US is easily the most litigious country in the world, yet we weren't the ones who thought to sue Samsung for all of their bloatware. Of course, that also has to do with the difference in laws between the US and China.

    Still, it seems like this is something consumers could do here in the States as well. Maybe if enough people banded together to sue Samsung and the other OEMs (and carriers) for their crazy amounts of bloatware we could get the same deal they have in China...
