The all new Google Pixel smartphones are already being sold and one of the carriers are yet again doing something they are known for. Verizon is selling the Google Pixel filled with useless apps called bloatware. The new smartphones are reportedly bundled with preinstalled apps that have little to no value. Verizon is known for this habit of theirs where they create all these unnecessary apps and have them preinstalled on your device, which may be annoying for some users.
The Google Pixel seems to have eight “Pre-loaded Play Store Apps”, including Go90, VZ Messages, and My Verizon. It is unclear if these pre-loaded apps can be removed from the device once in the hand of the user, however in Android 5.0 Lollipop, carriers were enabled to download apps to devices regardless of the system updates and as per the reports, apps that were installed this way, and those that can be obtained through the PlayStore, can also be removed easily by the user.
It is known that the Google Pixel and Pixel XL were released and have eyes set on dethroning Apple from their current top spot in the smartphone industry. Apple is, of course, one of those big companies that lead the smartphone industry. Note that due to this the new Google Pixel and Pixel XL have left the showdown of the Nexus phones’ pricing.
The new Google flagship phones are the transition of HTC from Google’s option from OEM to ODM. IT was reported that Huawei was first asked to do this for Google however they declined due to the lack of Huawei branding on the phone.
