I agree. My 32gb is under strain, I have disabled those apps that can be disabled, but there's still a lot of space taken up by this crap. Why bother? Just give us stock Android. Most people surely don't bother with this stuff.

Hi I also would like to remove the bloatware. How do i do this?
Agree with Beethoven, should be a option for stock android without intrusive apps like facebook.

If your phone is not rooted, then you can only disable it. A rooted phone voids the warranty, but who cares after one year. There are so many apps available in the Play Store to remove the bloatware completely.

I have noticed the only option is root. Disabled apps seem to be re-enabled anyway. In general running no root firewall from the play store disables unwanted data usage and notifications, but it makes it a hassle to tether the phone and as soon as you update on the app store you get notifications anyway and it re-enables some things.
All the Sony branded software seems the worst. I disabled the inbuilt TV remote (never going to use) and within seconds it notified me to set up the app.
Xperia lounge telling me about all the things I love? What about loving a life free of xperia lounge? Can xperia lounge tell me about that?
These apps use my battery, processor cycles, storage and mobile data to do things that irritate me.
I have been hesitant to root but I'm now starting to think it's worth sacrificing low light photography for a clean and polite system on my phone.
Unless there is an update that allows removal of all apps I don't want or use, this is my last Sony device including TV's etc. I see "Sony" , I think "rude".

I fully agree with you. I don't see why I have to keep Facebook on my phone when I don't use it. Sony, stop assuming everyone loves Facebook. Some people actually want a complete break from it.
