Verizon-offered Pixel devices to feature less, removable bloatware
In the past, people always found it hard to deal with devices that were sold by Verizon because the Big Red has an uncanny habit of installing a lot of bloat ware apps on a device and of these, none would be removable by the user.
When it was then announced that the US units of both the Google Pixel and Pixel XL would be sold via either of Google Store or Verizon, people already knew that they were already in with another battle of bloatwares should they not be able to secure a unit via the Google Store instead.
However, there is some good news in the bag as we now know for sure that the amount of pre-installed apps from Verizon that would be on the devices would be limited to three and of these, there is even the option to remove then should you not want it.
This is really a big upgrade over the compulsory usage that was forced down the throats of many in the past and if you don’t like to deal with the hassles of Verizon’s applications, buying from them won’t pose an issue this time around.
