yes u can.........additionaly still testing which apps can be removed , system isn't optimized quite well. I am removing more and more Meizu memory management related apps and testing how the phone works. This comes with trial & error so I expect a lot of reboots and reínstalls of the system.
I am now at the point that I have removed quite some Meizu apps which are memory optimization ( Meizu's NOT Android ) related. So far so good.........keep in touch
