Samsung Galaxy S5 mini - delete apps

How do I delete apps on my Samsung Galaxy S5 mini?

There are two ways (+) to delete apps on your Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini - the same two as on all Android phones:

- open Menu, find "Settings", go to Apps/Manage Apps. Tap on the app that you would like to delete. Scroll until you hit "delete" or "uninstall". You may want to hit "clear data" before you delete the app. Sometimes, some apps create data that doesn't get deleted during an uninstall.

OR:

- Open the Play Store. Swipe to the right to show the menu, and then tap on "My Apps".
Find the app of (un-) choice and hit "Uninstall".

Either way: if an app is not listed or the "uninstall" button is greyed out, it is a pre-installed app that you cannot uninstall without root access. Don't mess with them, unless you know what you're doing!
