I guess maybe I should be grateful that my phone is still getting updates, as my phone isn't new enough to get the latest Snapchat updates. I would like to know that my phone is up to date and I have the latest updates installed. I don't get that feeling currently, and I don't think I will unless i get an iPhone or a Nexus.
By removing apps I don't need, it reduces the time I spend on updating apps, and will help me manage my phone. It will keep my memory from getting full and dealing with space issues later. I also want to reiterate it will reduce my chances of being a smartphone zombie.
