Apps pre-installed on the Motorola DROID RAZR can be hidden or removed

Apps pre-installed on the Motorola DROID RAZR can be hidden or removed
Verizon customers holding an upgrade have had a tough decision to make between the Motorola DROID RAZR and the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. One of the factors that Big Red customers were using to decide between the two high-end phones was the fact that the DROID RAZR came loaded with Verizon and Motorola bloatware while the GALAXY Nexus is a pure Google experience.

The Motorola DROID RAZR
But what if you could hide or even remove some of the pre-installed applications? There is a way. Holding on to an application inside the app tray will bring up some options including giving you the choice to hide the icon. It won't remove the app from the phone, but at least you will be able to replace the icon with your own choice on the app tray. If you ever need to find one of those hidden apps, simply press the menu button and click on "Hidden Apps" at the top right of the menu.

Some pre-installed apps can not only be hidden, but also removed such as Let's Golf 2, Madden 12 and a few others. To remove those apps, long press on them like you do to hide the icons on the other apps. So now that you know that the bloatware on the Motorola DROID RAZR won't be too oppressive, anyone thinking of switching from the Samsung GALAXY Nexus camp?
