These apps grab a good amount of space onto device’s storage. Also, many of them keep running in the background as well. Either they run or not, they consume device’s resources in some way.
Removing them should bring good amount of free space, and positively affect the overall performance. Here is how one can remove/disable apps on Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.

4# Set Background Process limit
This is the single thing that gonna blow your mind. This trick helps to reduce the number background process running. In return, it gives a measurable boost to the entire performance of the phone.
Most of us rarely know about this feature inbuilt in Developer Option. That means, to access this option, you gotta Enable Developer Options, and then proceed further.

- Tap on Settings->Developer Options.
- Under Developer Options, scroll down, to get “Background process limit“

This trick works with all Android phones having access to Developer Options, and it has significant impact.
5# Clear Cache Data
It always works. As we use our Android phones, memory gets blocked by junk files, data, etc., created by installed apps. Eventually that creates performance issues.
To maintain the performance, it is recommended to clear cache memory once in a month or two. Actually that helps to calibrate the memory, and outcomes better performance in many aspects.
For these smartphones, we have already posted a tutorial that helps in doing the same task. Just follow the guide:
