In my opinion, Samsung is THE ONLY manufacturer who pays attention to what is most important - software. Hardware has come to a level, where everyone is basically equal and software is the only way to make a phone special.
Yes, everyone of those features is disabled on my phone.

I disagree that all this stuff "makes my life easier". I think it is useless bloat that just consumes resources.

I certainly did not buy this phone for those features. I bought it knowing I could disable all that crapware, download Apex, and have a fairly stock experience. If a Nexus s4 was available on Verizon, I would definitely have gotten that instead.

I don't recall complaining about the clock. Never use it, in fact. Already own alarm clock extreme.

I love the phone. I just think all the Samsung features are useless bloat, with a few notable exceptions. I like the mail client, browser, and text messaging client. I also mostly like zSamsung's take on the notification center.
