How to Uninstall Joy Launcher?

Joy App Launcher is an Alcatel device’s default app. Apps are managed by the Joy app launcher. I had read that the app launcher kills too much of the device’s battery and occupies data on its own. All of us want to know how to get rid of the launcher and get another launcher to resolve the battery and data issues.

Before taking a decision to uninstall the Joy Launcher, it is advisable to install another app launcher on the phone and then, disable it. If you try to uninstall it without any other app launcher, there might be issues of phone hangs, app crashes frequently (sometimes, hourly), and so on.
