Oppo and Samsung happen to be sued earlier last month for including bloatware on a few of the smartphones which are readily available for purchase in the country.

For people who do not recall, Shanghai Consumer Rights Protection Commission has filed the suits. The reason is the reality that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Oppo Find 7 comes with pre-installed programs that can not be removed.

In addition to this, a few of these programs “stole” cellular data since they can not be disabled. For your information, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 packs not less than 44 pre-installed programs, while the Oppo Find 7 comes with 71 pre-filled programs.

Taking into consideration the high number of programs which come pre-installed on these devices, in addition to the fact that a few of them could stay active and eat from users’ mobile information, it creates perfect sense for the two firms to be sued.

As well as these 44 pre-installed programs obviously need a lot of storage from the internal memory of Galaxy Note 3.

Korea Times reports that Samsung is currently taking into consideration enabling users to delete the bloatware, and not only from the Galaxy Note 3, but from all Galaxy mobiles accessible in China. To be able to accomplish this, the South Korean firm will set up a software update which will enable users to uninstall all programs that come pre-loaded on the Galaxy cellphones in the country.

Samsung explained – “Chinese consumers using Samsung’s Galaxy phones can now delete applications that were pre-installed because Samsung Electronics plans to provide software patches so things get done from next month.”

However, it seems that Shanghai Consumer Rights Protection Commission does not have any intention of dropping its suit against Samsung anytime soon.

Earlier this week another handset manufacturer that got sued, Oppo has yet to make any official statements upon the lawsuit.
