How to Debloat Huawei Phones (Remove Pre-installed Apps)

Huawei is one of the leading Smartphone companies with some popular devices like Huawei P30, Honor series and more. After the US-China trade war, the Huawei lost connection with Google. Then Huawei announced its Custom OS called Harmony OS which doesn’t have Google Apps in it. But it doesn’t matter which OS you have installed on your phone. Because the bloatware will be pre-installed in each case. But you can remove unnecessary apps from your Huawei phone by using this guide. Here you will know How to Debloat Huawei Phones.
