if you stay on the stock rom,they will be pushed without consent. you will possibly be able to defer the update a few times before it forces itself upon your device. the usual result is a simple failure to install,but in the process i can leave you stuck aat a splash screen or bootloop,and in an extreme situation an unrecoverable state(bricked)

there are several things ive read to defer OTAs:
-modify build.prop rom "fingerprint"
-freeze "updater" file with titanium or equivalent
-delete or rename "OTAcerts.zip" file

the best option,is to run a custom rom(even just a stock one) that will ahve un-needed files and bloat removed. custom roms are in most cases modified to not check for updates.
