    It's no longer bloat folks...it's pure unadulterated blubber. With a whopping 48 Verizon apps coming preloaded on the Maxx 2 taking up 3 gee bee's it's no wonder this phone weighs under 80 albs.

    Yes you can delete most of them, but must they really load all this crap on their handsets. I can see a few apps that are actually worth looking at, but 48!!?

    Well at least they didn't put their old logo on the back with the big check mark.......Huh?......What do you mean it's on there?! You serious?!! OH FOR CRIPES SAKE!!!!!

    I read this title as Bubbler. Thought it was funny.

    Your points, added to the fact that these devices aren't shipping with Marshmallow...no bueno in my opinion.

    Think of those 48 apps as gifts from Verizon. Boot up your phone and you have 30 of 48 meaningless apps meant to junk up....decorate your phone. And majority of those apps have Verizon somewhere in the app so you know who to thank.

    So which carrier loves you more .

    Ahhh not even two days removed from my venting about bloat that we have another bloat thread.

    Samsung aims to be the best in all categories. Don't think they are going to let Motorola show them up in this department. :p

    Actually it looks like Samsung may have cut back a little on the bloat this year.

    @bkdodger that's only 35, still 13 short of Verizon and Motorola. Then again you have all those S features.
