How to remove bloatware from Mi mobile?

Whenever you buy a new mobile phone you might have noticed that there are some pre-installed apps that you can’t uninstall. Some of these apps are the system utility apps such as calculator, camera, file manager, gallery etc. But many of the apps are those that you can easily download from the play store on your own such as UC browser, news app etc. You cannot uninstall these apps even if you want. Some vendors such as Samsung, Xiaomi, Lenovo, etc provide these kinds of apps pre-installed on the smartphone. These apps are not necessarily helpful to the user and they also clutter the storage space of the device. In this article, we will see how you can remove these bloatware apps from your Mi mobile

What is bloatware?

As stated above, bloatware refers to the apps that come pre-installed in your phone provided by the vendor. These apps act as system apps and cannot be uninstalled or deleted. These apps just occupy the storage space without serving any useful purpose for the user. Some of these even display ads in your whole device. Stock android ROMs or ROMs close to stock android ROM such as the ones provided by Motorola will have only the necessary apps that the official android open source project provides. Other than those primary apps any other app is considered as bloatware. In the case of xiaomi you might have seen apps such as email, FM radio, compass, Mi account, recycle, payment, scanner, etc which are already available in the google apps package but are also provided as default apps in xiaomi, these are a classic example of bloatware applications.

How to remove bloatware from your phone?

Removing bloatware from your phone is not an easy task if you don’t have a rooted phone. Since the bloatware apps are locked on to the system by the vendor and cannot be uninstalled normally you either have to use third-party apps or root your device to get rid of the bloatware apps. There are three ways to remove bloatware apps from your phone.

MIUI hidden settings

The MIUI hidden settings app is a platform for developers and users to access the hidden settings of the MIUI operating system and to perform complex tasks easily. Using this app you can do the number of different things such as access the notification log which was very challenging earlier. Using the MIUI hidden settings app you can uninstall most of the bloatware apps and you can also uninstall or disable the preinstalled Google apps But before doing all this you have to remove MI account from your phone. The hidden settings app provides a tabbed user interface where you can select the android version you have and perform the operations very easily.

  • Now select the “manage applications” option. You will be presented with a list of all the available applications on the device.
  • You can scroll through all the available applications and disable or uninstall whichever app you want.

The only issue with this application is you can’t uninstall all the bloatware apps using this moreover disabling the apps doesn’t necessarily remove it from your system so they will still occupy the storage space. The only benefit in disabling the apps is that those apps will no longer be shown in the app drawer neither they will consume any RAM.

Using ADB and fastboot

This is the best way to get rid of bloatware apps if hidden settings app doesn’t work properly for you and you also don’t want to root your phone. For this process, you will need your device and a computer. Just follow the below-given steps to get rid of bloatware from your phone.

  • Once the download is complete, install the Java SE Development Kit on your computer.
  • Now download the Xiaomi ADB/Fastboot tools. Make sure to download the latest file with .jar extension.
  • Once the download is complete double click on the .jar file that you have just downloaded. If your computer asks you to choose a software to open the file with, then select the Java SE Development Kit. Now the software window should open.

  • You should see that all the installed applications are completely removed from your phone.<

This is the best method to uninstall bloatware apps from your device as you do not need to root your phone and you still can completely remove the applications from your device’s system.

Using root access

If you have a rooted device or are ready to root your device then this is the best method to remove any bloatware from your mobile phone.

Oyo’s Work Towards Becoming the World’s Largest Hospitality Chain

Oyo has a grand plan to become the topmost hospitality chain through the best technologies and a perfect business model. During the first year of operation, Oyo received revenue of Rs.32.86 crore with a huge loss of Rs.496.31 crores. By the end of 2018, the topline of Oyo was seen to be at Rs.415 crore while incurring losses of Rs.360 crore. As years passed by, the revenues climbed 245 pecent whereas the losses ranged from Rs.355 crore to Rs.360 crore.

Oyo franchises these and leases them in 500 cities across 10 countries worldwide.

In a statement, the founder and CEO of Oyo- Ritesh Agarwal announced that Oyo is poised to become the top most globally by the year 2023.

Turning Point for OYO

The pivotal turning point can be seen back in 2016 when Oyo decided to become an inventory-exclusive franchise completely.

Ritesh Agarwal also added that during the year 2015-16, the company was stuck in a competitive battle and very little scope was present to start franchising and leasing of models, since it required a lot of time and effort. He is mainly talking about those times when Oyo had under it only few rooms for control and management instead of the entire property.

The boards outside the properties signified to the outsider that the building was one of Oyo properties, but the reality was that only a few rooms were managed by Oyo for which they offered Oyo referral code.

An owner of a budget hotel told Your Story in the year 2016, that Oyo’s business model makes it difficult for them to control the quality of experience the customer receives. A hotel stay not only is based around the room, but also on how the entire building looks, and how the staff behave and treat you.

After receiving this feedback, and conducting a thorough examination of the reviews made by customers, Oyo cancelled it’s partnership with many hundreds of properties. Since then Oyo began leasing complete properties in order to run them as franchises by managing every aspect from the hotel lobby, staff and rooms to even the kitchens, along with providing Oyo referral code to the customers.

Although Oyo received a funding of about $1billion in 2018, the journey has been nothing less than difficult. The hospitality company has received and faced innumerable challenges that every startup does such as complaints regarding quality of services, and messed up reservations among others.…

Sports; What Age Should Competition Begin?

Kids Playing soccer

Competition is a vital part of life. It is something that we are slowly weaned into, starting at a very young age. Competition is not only found in sports, but also in school, work, and extracurricular activities. The question that many parents ask themselves is how they should know when their child is ready for that added pressure.

The desire to win is what drives sports at the competitive level, but the desire to play and have fun should never be lost. It may be difficult to find that balance, but that is a key part of keeping children interested in what they are doing. At a young age, children are focused on playing and keeping the spirit alive in the game.

That subtle, or not so subtle, shift into the competitive world can be a difficult one. The divides go between the attitudes on the field, but also spill over into playing time, coach’s attitudes, and the relationships between the players off the field.

Parents know their children best, and they are the ones that can make that informed decision on when their children are ready for that new step in the sporting world. When they play to win, they are ready to enter that new stage.…
