When I checked the list of apps on my all-new Oppo Reno4 Pro, I was shocked to learn that it comes with 315 pre-installed apps out-of-the-box. I wanted to remove default apps like Hot Apps, Game Center, Oppo App Market in particular. If you want to get rid of Oppo system apps too, I’ve created a massive list of Oppo bloatware apps that are safe-to-remove. This tutorial will help you uninstall and disable default apps on Oppo smartphones without root using ADB commands without root.
All smartphones from popular Chinese OEMs like Xiaomi, Vivo, Realme, ZTE, Huawei, Honor, Oppo, etc. come with lots of pre-installed apps known as system apps. While many of the default system apps are essential to the proper functioning of the device, there are still many that are simply useless.
Such garbage apps are called bloatware and can be removed from the device without affecting its performance for a better experience, cleaner app drawer, and saving space, hardware resources, and battery. Moreover, some of the system and pre-installed system apps steal our data and may be a threat to our privacy.
Besides default apps from the OEM side, Oppo smartphones also come with a host of 3rd-party apps. Since most of such apps are installed as system apps, it’s not possible to disable or uninstall them via the app info page. Google Play Store has apps like System App Remover and Bloatware Remover that let you remove bloatware but your device must be rooted to do that. Thankfully, we can easily uninstall system apps on Oppo phones without root using ADB command-line tool.
If you have any of the phones listed below, the Oppo bloatware list will help you find out the safe to remove system apps and disable or uninstall them.

Oppo Bloatware List
In order to create a complete list of Oppo bloatware and system apps, I used 2 smartphones: Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Oppo Reno4 Pro and Oppo F17 Pro that has a Mediatek Helio chipset. I have mention Qualcomm and Mediatek bloat separately below.
In case you own another Android phone from some other manufacturer as well, you must check out the following tutorials to get rid of unwanted system apps.
- Samsung bloatware list
- OnePlus bloatware list
- Xiaomi bloatware list
- Nokia pre-installed apps list
- Realme bloatware list
- Vivo Bloatware list
- Huawei and Honor bloatware list
No matter which Android smartphone or tablet you have, you can always create your own list of all system apps installed on it using the ADB shell commands.
- Set up ADB and Fastboot on your Windows PC or Mac computer.
- Enable USB debugging on your Android device.
- Launch the Command Prompt / Terminal window on your system.
adb devicesin the command window and hit the enter key. When you get your device ID listed, execute the
adb shellcommand as shown below.
- Now, issue the following command and press the Enter key to get the package names of all system apps present in your device.
pm list packages -s
You now have the complete list of Oppo system apps but how do you know which apps are safe to remove and which are not? Uninstalling a wrong app might either break some function or result in a boot loop. And, that’s why our list of app package names for the safe-to-remove bloatware on Oppo phones might come in handy.
Warning: Please note that if you remove default Oppo apps like the Gallery, File Manager, web browser, camera, home launcher, etc., you must install an alternative to those apps beforehand. In case you mistakenly disable or uninstall an essential system app, you can enable to re-install them later.

Uninstall Oppo System Apps using ADB
Now that you have the list of all safe-to-remove Oppo bloatware apps, let’s see how to uninstall them without root using ADB.
- Download and install Android SDK Platform-tools on your PC. In case you got a Mac computer, you can use this tutorial to set up ADB on macOS. If you don’t have a laptop or computer but got another Android phone or tablet, you can use ADB commands on your phone to uninstall the system apps.
- In order that ADB can communicate with your Oppo phone, you must enable USB debugging via Developer options. Go to Settings > About phone, select Baseband & kernel and tap the Build number 7 times to unlock Developer options.
- Now, go back to the Settings page and select Additional settings > Developer options and turn on USB debugging.
- Go to the Display settings on your handset and increase the screen timeout to 10 minutes. It’s important because your phone won’t respond to ADB commands if the screen is off.
- Open the ‘platform-tools‘ folder and launch a Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell window.
The easiest way to do that is to type “cmd” in the folder and press the Enter key. If you have set up system-wide ADB on your Windows PC, you can execute ADB and Fastboot commands from anywhere.
- Connect your phone to the PC using a USB cable and select the file transfer mode on your phone when prompted. To make sure that it has been properly connected, execute the following command.
- Keep an eye on your phone’s screen and tap on Allow when it asks you to Allow USB debugging.
- You’ll see your device ID printed under the List of devices attached in the command window.
- It means that ADB can recognize the connected phone and is ready to communicate with it. It’s time to envoke the ADB shell using the command given below.
- Well, you’re all set to uninstall system apps on your Oppo device. You can use one of the two commands followed by the app package name mentioned below as per your preference.
pm uninstall -k --user 0 (to uninstall app but keep app data)
pm uninstall --user 0 (to delete app and its data both)
- For instance, if you want to remove the Game Center app from your Oppo device, use the above command as shown below.
pm uninstall --user 0 com.coloros.gamespace
As you can see in the screenshot, I removed Oppo system apps like Game Center, HeyTap Cloud, and ORoaming one after another. You’ll get a “Success” message after each successful uninstallation. You can keep uninstalling as many apps as you want.
Restore Uninstalled System Apps
In case you uninstall an Oppo system app by mistake, don’t worry. You can re-install it using the following command.
cmd package install-existing com.oppo.usercenter
App Uninstallation Failed Errors
While uninstalling Oppo apps using the ADB command, you might get the following errors.
- Failure [not installed for 0]: It means that the app package you are trying to remove is not installed on your phone.
- Failure [delete_failed_internal_error]: You’ll get this error on your Oppo device if the OEM has disabled the uninstallation of a system app and so you can’t uninstall it.
How to Disable Apps in Oppo
If you don’t want to uninstall default apps on your Oppo phone, you can simply disable them using another ADB command. For instance, if you want to disable the Kid Space app, use the following command.
adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 com.coloros.childrenspace
I have written another detailed tutorial that you should check out to learn how you can freeze, disable, and enable Android apps using ADB commands.
How to Remove Hot Apps from Oppo
‘Hot Apps’ is found on all smartphones brand owned by the Chinese conglomerate known as BBK Electronics. So, if you own a phone from brands like Vivo, Realme, and Oppo, you’ll find an app named ‘App Market‘ on it. Since Oppo has disabled permission to uninstall this app, the only way left to us is to remove ‘Hot Apps‘ & ‘Hot Games‘ from app settings.
- Open App Market on your Oppo device.
- Tap on the Me tab and then tap on the Settings icon.
- On the next page, tap on the toggle icon in front of Hot Apps & Hot Games.
That’s it! You have removed the Hot Apps & Hot Games app shortcut from your Oppo device.
With a hope that our Oppo bloatware list and tutorial would have helped you remove Oppo system apps from your device. In case you have any doubts or questions regarding the topic, please leave us a comment.
