In one week's time the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be out in the wild and we will all be discussing whether it is the device to help the company in its most testing period in years. It is accepted that Samsung has to change some things, which is why the South Korean giant is expected to unveil a radical overhaul of its flagship series.

The company's TouchWiz Android UI has been oft criticized for being slow and full of bloatware. Samsung said it would streamline the software, but judging by the list of apps arriving on the device, the company has rather missed the point. SamMobile, the outlet that is typically spot on regarding Samsung, has leaked the apps that will arrive on the S6 and each will apparently be unmoveable. One word springs to mind... bloatware. However, while this is a decent amount of apps, all are widely used and some are outright essential these days. With that in mind it seems Samsung is getting it right.
