Google apps, those that come pre-installed on your device can be useful but more often than not, they take up too much space on your device, consume your battery and in effect lower the phone’s performance. Yet, they can only be disabled and not completely removed from the device. If you don’t care much for these Google apps and want to get rid of them, to make room for more useful apps, this article will share with you an easy way to uninstall or remove Google apps from your device.
