Buying a new Samsung phone can be really exciting, but that excitement is also usually tempered by the realization that your brand new phone has dozens and dozens of bloaty crapware apps stuck on it forever.
Samsung is by all accounts losing ground to Apple at landslide rates, though, and it's reportedly considering drastic measures to improve its user experience going forward - including ditching all that TouchWiz baggage on the Galaxy S6.

The company may even be eyeing Google's Nexus phones and tablets as a model for how to slim down the Android experience.
Apps now optional
Some users definitely take advantage of the apps and settings that come pre-loaded on Samsung phones, and they'll likely still be available as downloadables, but they reportedly won't come out of the box on the S6.
The more popular TouchWiz apps, like S Health, will probably even remain on the device, but overall the experience will be pretty slimmed down.
