8.4 Pro. What bloatware can I turn off/should I turn off?
I bought a Tab Pro 8.4 last week (still haven't opened it) from Best Buy for $199. I read reviews that stated there is some hiccups and lagginess while doing multiple things at once.
I will not root the tablet, but, what bloatware can I and should I turn off to make this quicker and not have any lag? I read on the Tab S forum, someone that had the Tab Pro and this is what he mentioned:
haven't picked mine up yet, but I'm coming from a Tab Pro, which should have mostly the same UI elements. It's not difficult to turn off most of the Samsung bloat. In particular, turning off the magazine UI provided a significant boost.
I copied 8.4 forum, but I don't remember where. So I'm sorry to whoever I can't direct appropriate credit:
Try the Nova launcher from the Play Store to improve speed. Set it as your default launcher then Disable/Turn Off;
Flipboard, MagazineWidget, S Voice, Samsung Apps, Samsung Apps Widget, SapaMonitor, Screen Saver, World Clock, and (Hancom; Office for Android Share, Hcell, Hshow, Hword, Updater, Viewer Launcher, and Widget) if you don't plan on using it. Then reboot.
After following these recommendations performance improved significantly, and in using NOVA touchwiz is mostly unseen.
Hopefully this helps, but ultimately if it's not making you happy there's no reason to keep it. Good luck.
Now, I will keep my stock launcher. What can be turned off to give "UI provide a significant boost?" As the above member mentioned. Also, a real newbie question, how do I turn off the recommended bloatware?
Lastly, I just opened it for the first time to charge it. I bought the black tablet. Does the black tablet still come with the white charger? I would of thought the black tablet would come with a black charger?
