Please see my original post from the Galaxy S8 to see the XDA article on how to do this.

New phone, new list! I've compiled a list of most of the bloatware packages on the Samsung Galaxy S10 / S10 Plus.

Just debloat what you don't need. Of course, this is NOT a complete list. Some have reported that Bixby is completely safe to remove, as well as, Pay but I'll leave that up to the community to discuss. I've removed Bixby and replaced it with Button Remapper app and my Bixby Button works great! I get single press, double press, long press remaps working 100%! It's the only reason why I like Bixby and it's because we get an extra physical button for our personal use. I hope Samsung never gets rid of Bixby, having an extra customizable button is invaluable!

BTW, if you change your mind and want to re-enable a pkg, then check the XDA article in the link, there's an ADB command for that too

Before you remove the stock launcher, please make sure you have another one installed.

Code:

Please "thank" and vote 5 * on this post if you appreciate my work. That's all I ask

How to get rid of Bixby and remap the button for 1 press, 2 press, and long press... remove these packages:

Code:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.samsung.android.bixby.wakeup
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.samsung.android.app.spage
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.samsung.android.app.routines
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.samsung.android.bixby.service
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.samsung.android.bixby.agent
pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.samsung.android.bixby.agent.dummy
I did not remove the Bixby Vision / Framework packages because then we still retain built-in QR, barcode scanning and other AI stuff from the stock camera app.

Then, install your fav button remapper app from the Play Store.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ar2.homebutton

For an explanation of what these packages do, please see this informative post by @Ace42:

Thanks, you just did what I was too lazy to do. I won't disable all of those but now at least I don't have an excuse for not removing some junk.

I recently used the adb method to get the mobile data quick settings tile back on my AT&T S10. Is there a way to disable the "Are you sure you want to turn off data?" prompt that now comes up using this same method?

Could you be more specific about which method you used to remap Bixby? I see a number of remapper apps, and a few walkthroughs here, but am interested in what you did exactly?

Thanks!

Edit: Also, thanks for sharing this post, it's awesome and makes the phone feel that much better!

Phone is Starting hangup
Thanks for the guide! I'm running into an issue with an S10e when I remove some of the apps, where the home screen on my phone is unresponsive and displays a message "Phone is starting." I'm currently trying to find which app it is, but it seems to be under GENERAL SYSTEM header.

I'm going to try removing everything in safe mode. Thanks again!

If you removed app.launcher and don't have an alternate launcher installed (e. g. Nova Launcher) , that might be your issue.
