I guess it's really how someone defines this. If it's carrier installed then everyone says it's bloatware. If it's manufacturer installed then it's bloatware. What about Google installed? Or Windows installed? In my opinion if it's on the phone and I don't use it, it's bloatware. I don't use Google play books, magazines, Google search, Google +, Hangouts, but you can't remove these. For some reason nobody calls these Bloatware. Well mines rooted and Cyn takes care of that. Even the Nexus 5 isn't so "Vanilla" anymore.

You can't remove them without root but you can disable them so they're no longer visible.

So Microsoft just decoupled the music player? I still have no idea what Xbox Music does

Onwards and upwards for WP... Hope more usage comes with individual dedicated apps.
