    Hello,

    I'm currently interested in the deal for the OnePlus 8 Pro.

    My only concern is Facebook Services bloatware.

    I know OnePlus no longer bundles Facebook bloatware on their phones. But what about a OnePlus 8 Pro I buy now? Will it have Facebook Services?

    Is it no longer included for that model?

    Thank you

    Thank you for your response.

    I don't want facebook or any bloatware from them.

    Does it still come with bloat from facebook or is it clean?

    You can disable facebook services or you can remove it with adb. Lot of manuals to find on the internet.

    Thank you very much. So it seems I still have to bend over backwards to avoid facebook Services.

    I'll pass on the 8.

    The Oneplus 8 Pro is a really good device. I've no problems with it. Super fast, good battery and so on. I also removed the Facebook bloatware with adb. It was really easy.

    Yea true. But I've willfully already sold my soul to Google by getting an Android, I don't want Facebook to also get a piece of me.

    Thank you. When you remove it with adb, does it come back after applying any updates or is it permanently off?
