Samsung today highlighted some of the third-party applications it plans to install on the Galaxy S5 smartphone, and claims their total value exceeds $600. Most of the freebies take the form of limited-time memberships to web sites or services that would otherwise charge for their use. For example, the Galaxy S5 will include a six-month subscription to the Wall Street Journal and a 12-month subscription to Bloomberg/BusinessWeek. It will also include a $50 voucher for PayPal merchants, 50GB of Box storage for six months, 50GB of DropBox storage for two years, and 1TB of Bitcasa storage for three months. Several fitness subscriptions will be included, as will gaming credits. Smartphones are often sold with third-party apps and services pre-loaded. The Samsung Galaxy S5 will go on sale worldwide in April.

Or you can buy a Nexus or iPhone

And get none of that junky bloatware Laughing
Yeah, you'll just have Apple or Google bloatware instead of Samsung's.....huge difference....NOT.
inferior hardware to get rid of unwanted software. Naw I'll pass. Can root it if you don;t want it. I just went from 4.4 stock to 4.3 touchwiz because I missed some things. And the sales numbers say people don't mind the preinstalled software. Message...

oh great more bloatware

Just what every phone needs more pre-installed software you can not get rid of.
I thought it was the carriers bloatware you can't get rid of. What they anounced sounds like third party apps you can un install and download without problems later on.
