Does Samsung still load their phones to the gills with bloatware?

Picked up my Note 8 on Saturday, so far I love it. Also got an awesome deal from Verizon, traded in my Note 5 and got 50% off the 8.

Did you load the Shop Samsung app, register your Note 8 with them? You get free goodies from them if you do so before 9/24 I believe is the cutoff date. Choice of wireless charger and 128gig card, or 360 camera. You do need your receipt for the phone though to prove you have it (does not have to be paid in full, but has to state the Note 8 on there)

I did the same thing plus I also traded my I phone 6s plus and got another 329.00 off I ended up paying 144.00 plus taxes for the phone and I got them to waive the 30.00 upgrade fee.

Yes I still have an S5 because it still does everything I need it to do and I'm not a slave to have a companies latest gadget.

Might get an S8 thru Best Buy later this year. Figure that'll last me 3 or 4 years.
I still have an iPhone 5s.
