Are you talking about the Media hub, because that only takes 1.93MB of your 11,233.3MB of space (or 0.0172%). Since the only way to remove it 100% is to root the phone. The issue there is that the superuser apk you need for root takes up 1.4 MB then the SU binary and whatever else needs to be installed for root and the custom recovery will take up more than the 0.5MB left over. Meaning you will end up taking up more space on the phone in the process of removing the app.

So my $0.02, just disable the app and not worry about it, unless you want to root your phone

RAM is different than your phones internal storage. Don't worry about how much RAM is being used. Android will kill off the apps not being used when it needs more RAM.

Correct. And apps showing as "running" aren't actually running and will not kill your battery.

Stay away from task manager apps that kill these apps

Task manager apps not task manager. The phone has a built in task manager so an app is not needed.

Go into app manager. Settings»Application manager and go under 'ALL'.

Go to the stock apps you want disabled. However, if the button is greyed out, you cannot uninstall or disable the app.
