  2. In the window that appears, click on "Uninstall".

Via settings

This variant is suitable for all smartphones based on the Android operating system, including Samsung Galaxy A52. To uninstall you need:

  1. Open settings.
  2. Go to the «Apps» section (it could be called differently).
  3. Choose the program.

Through the Google Play Store

If the app was installed via the Play Store you can delete unnecessary apps on the Samsung Galaxy A52 directly via Google Play. For this, it is necessary:

You can also use any other program, by running the uninstall apps function. In all cases, the deletion process will be similar.

How to delete pre-installed apps on Samsung Galaxy A52

Unlike third party programs, it is much more difficult to delete system apps on Samsung Galaxy A52. This is due to the fact that the software is developed by the creators of the smartphone and its uninstallation could cause serious crashes in the operation of the device. If that doesn't stop you, choose one of the two options.

Disable system apps

By default, system apps cannot be removed. You can only turn them off:

  1. Go to settings.
  2. Open the apps section.
  3. Choose the program.
  4. Press the «Force stop» button.

How to uninstall pre-installed apps on Samsung Galaxy A52

  3. Connect the Samsung Galaxy A52 to the PC.
  4. Unzip the ADB archive to the root folder of the disk.
  5. Start the command line with administrator rights.
  6. Process the "cd c: / adb", "adb devices", "adb shell" requests by pressing the "Enter" button after entering each of them.
