Hello MIUIers,

A new study suggests that 70 percent of European Android users want pre-installed apps.



The Application Developers Alliance asked 4,000 Android users in France, Germany, Spain and Italy about their app install preferences. It’s worth noting that Google helped develop the study, and the company is currently locked in battle with the EU over whether its default Android apps are anti-competitive.
The results seem to lie in Google’s favor. The vast majority of Android users change their home screen setup (90 percent), and that while Google apps were generally within the top few apps used, they were rarely #1.

Which apps are used to search, review or purchase a product?

Screen-Shot-2016-11-18-at-8.26.19-AM.png


For Shopping, it was Amazon. For music, it was Spotify. For chatting, it was WhatsApp. For calls, it was Skype. For reading, it was Kindle. The categories it led were streaming video (YouTube), email (Gmail), and Cloud storage (Drive), and finding flights (Google Search), none of which are particularly surprising.
However, that 70 percent figure in the headline comes from a question that seems to preclude a positive response. The survey asks the rather wordy: “If you were to buy or receive a new Android device, would you prefer it to come with basic apps so it works out of the box (like an iPhone)?”

In particular, the survey found:
  • 74 percent of Android users move a pre-loaded app off the home screen.
  • 52 percent Android users move pre-loaded apps they don’t use into a folder
  • 44 percent of users change the default apps in some way (e.g., changing the default search engine, default browser).
  • However, 56 percent said they did not change default apps or didn’t know they could.

There are many arguments against pre-installed apps, but truth is it boils down to which specific apps are included. And while you could also point out that having pre-installed apps in general might slow down devices, but as far as the anti-competitive litigation goes, the study does corroborate Google’s claim that pre-loading its apps doesn’t stop people from using others.

Do You Want Pre-Installed Apps on Your Phone?

Phone without pre-installed app is preferable to me . coz there can be many pre-installed app which may seem useless to some users and still occupy space on their device as they are pre-installed.

Users can easily install the apps they need . So giving pre-installed apps and forcing users to use the apps that company promotes , is really a bad idea .

I always want clean and without preloaded apps, or at least we can uninstall preloaded apps..
Because everyone have different usage and needs, that's why "It would be great if we can uninstall preloaded apps on our MIUI"
