HTC Evo 3D Bloatware Can be Removed Without Root
This is either a step in the right direction or a fluke. It seems that the HTC Evo 3D has something that past Sprint devices lack: the ability to simply uninstall bloatware programs that come with the device. You don’t even need to root the darn thing. It’s as simple as going into Settings, Applications, Manage Applications, select the app that you want to get rid of, and Uninstall. Yeah, it’s really that simple.
Now, this could mean that HTC and Sprint have heard their customers’ complaints about bloatware and are now making the programs optional, or it could be that HTC just forgot to disable this feature on the Evo 3D before releasing it. Personally, I’m going with the first one. So, if you’ve gotten your Evo 3D already, and you don’t want that blasted Nascar app, just uninstall it. Any of our readers tried this method yet? Surprised that HTC and Sprint allowed bloatware to be removed without root? Sound off in the comments below or on our Facebook Wall!
