This question already has an answer here:
I recently bought a bq smartphone ubuntu edition, and I was surprised to see so many pre installed apps that I don't want to use. Some of them are apparently easy to remove, by going to the ubuntu store.
But there is something that I don't manage to do. I'm in the Apps scope, and slide the screen upwards. Then, I see a screen with a list of the active scopes named "Home", and a second list named "Also Installed". In this list I see many apps that I don't manage to find in the ubuntu store, and therefore I cannot uninstall. For instance, 7 digital, Amazon, cnet, ebay... many of them.
But I'm not sure that the procedure of uninstalling them from the ubuntu store is really working: If I go to Settings->About this phone->Storage, I see a detailed list of the apps that are using memory in my phone. In this list there are some apps that I previously uninstalled using the ubuntu store procedure. For instance, BBC, BBC sport, facebook,facebook photos, Gmail... and many more are still using memory in my phone.
My question is: How can I really get rid of these apps that I don't want to have? I would like not to dedicate a single bit of space to those apps
