Sprint’s new flagship handset, the Evo 3D, is out today and with it comes a “first” for the carrier. The Evo 3D is the first Sprint smartphone to offer such capability and without forcing you to hack or root.
While each might be valuable in its own right, Until now, these apps would stay on the phone, eating up precious megabytes of storage. Android users will generally come across other apps that better suit their needs. And as mentioned, you had to go through the long process of rooting your phone if you wanted to remove them.
All of these preloaded applications can be removed from the Evo 3D, save for Sprint ID. According to MobileBurn, Sprint made the changes for the Evo 3D as a result of consumer feedback.
By all accounts it’s a good move and we hope that Sprint follows up on its talk of offering a similar experience for future handsets. Mobile Tech News quotes from CNET Review.
