Is there any evidence that removing so called bloatware actually does extend battery life to any measurable extent?

Unless software is turning on power sapping hardware, I see no reason to believe that having Samsung bloatware on the phone actually makes any material difference.

Also, rather than worrying about numerous configuration changes, have you considered just carrying a spare battery around with you? I have done it for three years with my S2 and now S4 and it's a solution that has worked very well for me. I no longer have to worry about battery life at all.
