Onepolus Input’s quote spokesman Report It has been claimed that the smartphone maker’s phones will no longer bring pre-loaded apps and services owned by Facebook. The spokesperson said that the only third party app to come on the OnePlus smartphone will be Netflix.
When users uninstall Facebook-owned apps like Instagram, Messenger and Facebook from OnePlus smartphones, background Facebook services such as Facebook Application Manager, Facebook Installer and Facebook Notification Services etc. can simply be disabled and not completely removed from the phone.
The report said OnePlus did not make it clear that it would never pre-install Facebook apps and services on its smartphones, but said it would not do so in the future. OnePlus also declined to comment on how it could remove pre-installed Facebook apps and services on existing OnePlus Nord and OnePlus 8 series phones. The report quoted the source as saying that there is no easy and user-friendly way to remove applications that are pre-installed on OnePlus phones, as removing them would disrupt the user experience.
