Hello
I find my Z2 pretty much as Samsung S3 heavy bloated with apps i do not want. Some of them cant be uninstalled.

For my S3 there was a custom stock rom with the ability to check what apps i wanted and not.
Or is there any application that can clean my phone from sony,s bloatware?

I find this annoying every time i buy a new phone. Same with computers. Therefore i build my own computers.

Root the phone (use this) and then uninstall the unwanted system apps.

Which customization country version do you have?

There are a few stock country ftf which have least bloatware, such as UK and Canada (I'm using Canada) for instance.
