Hello,

I've debloated a Samsung SM-A320FL for work, so I though I should share my method with you.
It needs no special knowlegde, no root so you won't loose any warranty or so.

1 - First of all, you need to install ADB on your PC (You can find how to do it here).
2 - Then activate developper options on the phone. Go to:
Parameters/about phone/software informations
and tap 7 times on "build version"
3 - Still on the phone, go back to parameters and to "developper options". Activate "USB debogging mode"
4 - Plug the phone to the PC and athorize the connection
5 - Launch the adb console as administrator and type "adb shell"
6 - Paste the content of the file linked to this post and press enter

Your A3 has now only those apps:
- My files
- Play Store
- Phone
- Messages
- Camera
- Gallery
- Clock
- Contacts
- Parameters
- Calculator

Off course you can now desactivate "USB debogging mode" and "developper mode", so your phone seem to be factory done like that by Samsung.

adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 <package_to_disable>
For some reason, the disable-user command lets you disable basically any application you want while the regular disable command is quite limited.

Thanks, saved my device from the ever overloaded internal memory. As it's for personal use I kept (or rather reinstalled) email, calendar, photoretouching, smartmirroring, google drive (aka .docs) and google maps (some may want to keep videos and youtube too).

I only have one issue so far:
  • gallery app crashes when i want to check image details and under albums it only shows me camera roll, but none from other folders.
  • despite reinstalling smartmirroring, the screen-mirroring icon disappeared from the slide-down menu [stupid me had installed mirrorlink instead of smartmirroring]
It would be great, if someone could tell what dependencies the gallery app has to access file info and to create these folder albums. So i can reinstall the needed stuff. My phone feels so much snappier now and i certainly won't go back to reinstall all of them just to get that Samsung gallery and screen mirroring to work properly. Thanks again to the OP.
