Default Question from Newbie to S4

I am a newbie to the S4 and was wondering if someone could post a list of apps that are safe to disable...........I know some of the Samsung ones are but if there is a list somewhere that would be great.

I'm not really sure you get that much benefit over just turning off some of the Samsung features (e.g. Air View, Smart Scroll, Smart Pause.) And you're certainly less likely to have problems just turning those things off, compared to disabling programs.

I froze pretty much everything on that list and have not had a single problem. I'll actually uninstall them in another month or so (it has been about one month so far) as long as I still don't want to use any of the frozen apps and I still see no problems.
That will free up some space hopefully.
