In the event that the application has root permission, tools such as the Root Uninstaller or App Remover will work for you. However, when they are deleted in this way, there is no data left on them and it is not possible to recover them easily, as in the case of non-root methods.
In such a way that the roots accesses completely eliminate what you select, making recovery impossible.

Remember to make a backup of your applications because it could help you to correct any possible mistake that you make.
Ultimately, it is desirable that remove apps that perform the same function as one that is already pre-installed. For example, if you have a Samsung mobile that includes Samsung Calendar and Google Calendar, it is recommended that you eliminate one of the two because they perform the same task.
