Samsung and Bloatware Issues

Samsung S5 still suffers from bloatware

Is there also bloatware in Samsung S5?

In one of the articles published by Combofix, it was highlighted that Samsung Galaxy S4 users have raised a number of complaints about the performance of their devices, and this can be traced back to bloatware issues. Although the S4 is advertised as having 16GB of internal memory, around 7GB of this is taken up by pre-installed apps and software.
