I recently moved to France and when signing my Orange contract discovered they had a great deal for a Fairphone 4.
I purchased the phone and was mostly delighted. However, it came packed with horrible bloatware: it dynamically installs new apps on the phone on reboot. Sometimes I can delete them, but usually they reappear on reboot because the core bloatware ‘app center’ is hidden so that I cannot remove it by normal means.
Needless to say, this feels very intrusive, disturbing and… Unfair.
Is there any way I can remove this bloatware without voiding my extended warranty?
