How to Uninstall and Disable System Apps on Realme Devices

Realme smartphones may have Realme UI but it is overloaded with a boatload of bloatware from Oppo and ColorOS. On top of Oppo and Color OS, there are system apps from Realme UI, Google, and Android itself. If you have a Realme phone and are looking for a way to debloat it, here’s a list of 200+ bloatware that you can get rid of without root. Let’s see how we can uninstall system apps on Realme devices using ADB commands.

It doesn’t matter which Realme phone you own, all devices from share almost mostly the same system apps.

When I executed the pm list packages -s command on my brand new Realme X50 Pro, I got a list of 389 preloaded apps. I wondered why my phone has around 400 system apps. It was then that I decided to uninstall the apps that I don’t need for better performance and battery life.

In the beginning, my aim was to uninstall or remove apps like Realme App Market, Game Center, Theme Store, Google Chrome, YouTube, etc. It’s not hard to disable system apps and debloat Realme UI and ColorOS if you have the package name of the app you want to remove.

Meanwhile, you should also check out my list of bloatware on devices from Android OEMs other than Realme.

Create your list of Realme Bloatware

If you are wondering how I got the above list of Realme UI bloatware, you create the list of all system apps installed on your phone using just one ADB Shell command. You don’t need to be a geek or an Android developer for that.

  1. Download Android SDK for Windows, macOS, or Linux. This zip file contains the latest ADB and Fastboot drivers for Android so you’ll have to extract it. Alternatively, you can get the list of system apps and remove them using ADB commands on your Android device itself without a PC or laptop.
  2. Go to Settings > Additional settings > Developer options and enable USB debugging. If you don’t find the option listed, you must unlock Developer options first by going to Settings > About phone > Baseband & Kernel and tapping Build number 7 times.realme developer options
  3. Now, open the ‘platform-tools‘ folder and launch a Command Prompt in the folder window. The easiest way to do that is to type “cmd” in the folder address bar and hit the Enter key. There are 2 more ways to open a command window in a folder on Windows.
  4. Anyway, connect your Realme phone to the computer via a USB cable and run the following command.
    adb devices

    adb devices command

  5. Just as you run the ADB command, you might be prompted to Allow USB debugging on your Realme device to authorize ADB.authorize adb and usb debugging on realme devices
  6. When you see your device ID under the list of attached devices, issue the following command.
    adb shell
  7. It’s time to execute the actual command to create the list of all pre-installed apps on your Realme device.
    pm list packages -s
  8. As soon as you press the Enter key, you’ll have the complete list of Realme system apps in the command window. You can copy the list by pressing Ctrl+A followed by Ctrl+C and paste it into a text file for future use.

If the above method feels complicated to you, you can use Android apps like Package Browser, App Inspector, Package Name Viewer, etc. to get the app package names of apps installed on your device.

Uninstall System Apps on Realme without Root

So, you have the package names of all apps. Depending on your preference, you can uninstall system apps on your Realme phone, disable apps, and freeze apps that you don’t want to run in the background. Not just that, in case you uninstall a system app by mistake or get any issue after removing an app, you can easily reinstall it to fix the problem.

Just launch a command window, execute the adb shell command, and use the following commands. For any help, don’t forget to check out the detailed steps to uninstall system apps using the ADB command.

Uninstall apps: pm uninstall --user 0 <package name>

Reinstall an app: cmd package install-existing --user 0 <package name>

Disable an app: adb shell pm disable-user --user 0 <package name>

Freeze an app: cmd appops set <package_name> RUN_IN_BACKGROUND ignore

Don’t forget to replace <package_name> with the actual package name of an app. For example, if you want to remove the App Market in Realme UI, use the App Market package name as shown below.

pm uninstall --user 0

If your Realme device is running ColorOS, try the following command to uninstall the App Market.

pm uninstall --user 0

Below is a screenshot showing how you can uninstall Realme system apps one by one using ADB. As you can see, I removed apps like Game Center, HeyTap Cloud, and ORoaming from my Realme X2.

uninstall system app in color os

In case you get the ‘delete failed internal error‘ in ADB while trying to remove the App Market, Game Center, or Theme Manager app, it means that the OEM has restricted its installation.

Failure[Delete failed Internal Error]

In that case, you’ll have to root your Realme phone and use the commands given in my Android bloatware removal tutorial.

To fix the Permission denied error while uninstalling system apps, you should go to Settings > Additional settings > Developer options and disable Permissions Monitoring.

Anyway, if you want to disable YouTube and Chrome in Realme, you can use the following commands.

adb shell pm disable-user --user 0
adb shell pm disable-user --user 0

So, this is how we can disable apps in ColorOS and uninstall system apps on Realme UI. Using our Realme bloatware list, you can debloat Realme UI or ColorOS easily and safely. You can now use the Universal Android Debloater tool to get rid of unwanted system apps on your Realme smartphone.

  1. *adb shell pm uninstall -k –user 0 com.coloros.gallery3d*
    By unistalling this user can’t access the photos directly from the camera app. So you shouldn’t recommend this to remove as most users will find this annoying (although not a major issue).

  2. Hello everyone.
    Has anyone removed google photos using this method?
    If so, was everything else ok with the phone, every other google app was usable, etc?
    I just bought this Realme 7 5g and I didn’t root it yet, I’m used to rooting all my phones but for now, I’ll wait, at least untill my patience runs out because of bloatware, ringtone and notification sounds combined, lack of options, etc.
    Thank you.

  3. Hello from Portugal. Hope you’re all well.
    If it helps anyone, I was able to uninstall Google Photos and Google Duo (the only apks I wanted to uninstall for the moment, so I haven’t tried uninstalling other apks).
    My phone is Realme 7 5g (Europe).
    Google Duo was completely uninstalled, as for Google Photos, the APK file is still on the phone occuppying about 80Mb and I can’t seem to delete it (rebooted, of course), but that’s okay, I just didn’t want Google Photos to have access to my photos, I’ve had problems with that nasty app before.
    That’s it.

  4. Thank you. The names of the apps are different for the update from ColorOS to REALMEUI. It helped me a lot to uninstall the browser and also for the game center. This information on the updated names of the apps does not exist anywhere else !!! Greetings from Mexico.

    Muchas gracias. Los nombres de las apps son diferentes para la actualizacion de ColorOS a REALMEUI. Me ayudó mucho para desinstalar el navegador y tabien para el game center. Esta informacion de los nombres actualizados de las apps no exite en ningun otro sitio!!! Saludos desde Mexico.

  5. I have prepared a list of safe-to-remove apps on my realme 7 pro device.

  6. Hi,

    Thanks for providing the list. It is so useful to cleanup unwanted bloatware apps.

    com.coloros.encryption package causes issues with Realme 5 Pro devices.

    If we disable or uninstall this package then the display of the phone is keep on blinking and we can no longer use it.

    Also, after uninstalling these packages, I got recent update in my phone and once it successfully udpated, upon restart, the phone started having display blinking issue. Then I had to reset my phone and lost all data stored in my phone. So, this time I have disabled the packages instead of uninstalling it. Let’s see what happens on next update.

  7. I had the annoying assistive floating button visible but there was no way in the settings to hide it, I am not sure why this was the case. I enabled it through a quick access in the notifications dock that says “Floating Button” but then this quick access disappeared from the notifications.
    But I was able to find it’s package name (com.coloros.floatassistant) and disable so thank you!

    1. Hi Ravi,

      If an app is not installed on your device, you’ll get “not installed for 0” in return.

      Please use “pm list packages -s” to get the list of the system apps installed on your Relme 3 Pro and then uninstall the apps you want using our guide.

  8. Do *NOT* adb shell pm uninstall -k –user 0
    Causes boot loop on restart. on Realme7 & Realme8
    Can be undone with:
    adb shell pm install-existing –user 0
    as long as you have USB debugging left on and ticked always allow from this device/pc

  9. 1) Make a backup before do anything with your device!
    2) NEVER delete, com.coloros.weather2 otherwise device became a brick
    and you have to perform “wipe data” from recovery menu
