Default Apps Safe to Turn Off?

Which of these apps are safe to turn off?

Flipboard (I have a feeling this one is)
Play Movies & TV
Play Newsstand
Google Search
Group Play
HP Print Service Plugin (I have a feeling this one is)
Samsung Books
Samsung Print Service Plugin
Samsung Video
Samsung WatchOn
Samsung WatchOn Video
Share Music
TalkBack
TripAdvisor (I have a feeling this one is)
Youtube (I use Instatube)

EDIT: I just realized this is the rooting board. While it might go in here, as I am rooted, it also might go in the default S4 board. Feel free to move if you feel it should go there.

These are some of my disabled apps.


Flipboard, HP, YouTube, without problems. I don't know about Samsung apps, but most likely the can be disabled.

Thanks. I was running into the Insufficient Space error a lot, even though I still had 700 MB free in phone storage, so now I'm just looking to get rid of anything possible. Plus, it was annoying updating apps I never use.

I don't mean to hijack this thread but what ROM are you running Nomade? The double signal up top caught my eye.

Every one you listed is deleted in mine. So I'd say safe.

With apps that you have any doubt just disable them, wait a couple of days and if nothing weird happens feel safe to uninstall them.

^^ agreed. Just cuz I have no problems.. lol don't mean the next guy won't. It really how you use your device. Like talkback. It could be useful. And some could rely on it not even knowing. Until they stop or disable it then they realize they were using the app the whole time. Just remember for almost every app... There is another on playstore
.lol
