2 easy (and free) no-ROOT options for removing bloatware

Both these will need a PC with the android drivers installed, and ADB access enabled in the phone.

You can avoid messing with CLI and downloading the ADB binaries as both come with the required files (feel free to update with newer versions)

The easiest to use for everyone is APK Installer.

And for total control or for the more nerdy, a TotalComander / GhostCommander ADB plugin
