Its always good to freeze first, go a day to make sure your phone is ok n working like before the freeze. then when you r sure everything is stable you can uninstall. Titanium bckup is the app to use. Kevins post show the apps that you can safely remove. make a nandroid r back the apps you uninstall with Tit Bckup first incase you need to get them back

Just remember to backup the app before deleting it in case you want it back

You do a nandroid by booting into recovery then hitting backup... Let it finish then reboot

Use the volume rocker to go up and down and the power button to select

Here is a app that will take u into recovery so u Dont have to hold power and volume up

Would the Samsung Account/Link apps and all of the Samsung backup things still be necessary? I can't really honestly imagine that they are completely required but at the same time, I don't feel like bricking my only current phone or etc. Same with the default email app, Google Text-to-Speech, Hangouts, and Talkback.
