Default Remove bloatware/app disable (some items may be carrier specific)

I know you can disable some apps, which ones are safe to do so?

Default HTC ONE APP Disabling

As a rule,if you can disable an app,it shouldn't* have any ill effects on other apps.

It's actually a nice compromise of having the option,as you can't really hurt anything.

*If you do see some undesirable effects,just work backward from the previous apps that you disabled until everything is running as desired once again.

EDIT: Just to clarify,we are speaking only of disabling apps,not deletion of apps,on a stock un-rooted phone.

Finally got mine, stumbling thru best as I can. I'm on Sprint. I don't even see its possible to delete Facebook or Twitter which I don't use. Is this carrier specific or am I just missing something? With my music and the apps I've downloaded already I have about 6 gigs left. I will use OTG for movies but want to get rid of anything possible to save space. Thanks in advance.

If you really want to slim down you need to root the phone and use a rom/kernel that has system read/write enabled. theirs lots of information in the everything root section above.

And just look how lucky we are The 16gig SGS4 has less than 2 gig's free space right out of the box ...lol

Thanks, but I'm new to android and have no plans to ever root. The SG4 was in the mix for me too, it just didn't feel great in hand. It shouldn't have mattered because all my phones go right into an Otterbox, but it felt cheap. I could use my 64gb micro sd in that though, I just felt this was better and a lot cheaper(Newegg 129.99 plus a $20.00 gift card). My teenager is helping me thru it, she has an LG Optimus G. I installed Nova already and I am in the process of trying to organize my apps. One day at a time. Cheers

I won't be rooting my phone either. So could someone give a list of apps to disable for Sprint?

I thought Facebook and Twitter could not be removed. I will look into getting that off as well. Thanks
