I guess the Motorola bloatware is better than the T-Mobile bloatware... at least I can go into App Info and "Disable" most of it. I'm not going to root this phone for a while, but Disable seems to be all I need. Besides not running and wasting CPU cycles, Disabling will prevent the apps (especially the Google/Motorola product apps) from hogging valuable memory on my 16GB Moto X. Here are the System apps that I think the system could do without, though a lot of them I'll keep. I'll update the list (if there's interest) as I kill things off, or if I learn that it shouldn't be deleted. (Or, of course, if I brick my phone disabling one!) Anyone have experience with doing a mass-disable? Disabled: * Motorola Alert - Disabled, because my family is already using Life360 to spy on each other. * Motorola Migrate - how many times does it think I need to use this? * Assist (7/28/14) - Popped up today to help me with my life. But I can mute my phone in a meeting, use voice control while driving, and sleep through midnight texts just fine on my own. This also uninstalled the 7.69MB from its latest update. * Connect (7/29) - Sending SMS from my browser isn't as useful as I expected. 7.5MB update removed. * Google Play Games (10/2014) * Google Play Movies & TV (10/2014) * Google Play Newsstand (10/2014 - had 5MB of data and I've never opened it!) * HP Print Service Plugin (10/2014) * Help (10/2014) * TalkBack (10/2014, note it may have a different name after latest update) * Hangouts (10/2014, was using 40MB+ even though I never open it) * Translate (10/2014, now called "Google Translate") * Gallery (11/2014, now called "Motorola Gallery". I use QuickPic: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.alensw.PicFolder&hl=en) Maybe could disable, but would need to research first * Audio Effects * Active Display, Active Display System Process (sounds like it might break something) * Android Live Wallpapers * Basic Daydreams * Bubbles * Calendar * Chrome * Clock (would this break things?) * Cloud Print * D2DCallHandler * Device Management * Drive (aka Google Drive) * Email (the non-Gmail client) * Face Unlock * Gmail * Google Keyboard * Google One Time Init (if it's one time, why do I still need it?) * Google Partner Setup * Google Play Books * Google Play Music * Google Play Store * Google Search (40Mb for a search app?) * Google+ * Magic Smoke Wallpapers (where I come from, if your device emits Magic Smoke, it's a Bad Thing!) * Maps * Motomaker * Motorola Boot Services (sounds dangerous) * Motorola Checkin * Motorola Contextual Serices * Motorola DriveActivator * Motorola ID * Motorola Modality Services * Motorola Skip(tm) Setup * Motorola One Time Init (again, one time?) * Motorola Sensor Services (probably need it) * Motorola Spotlight Player (silly, but I'm keeping it for now) * Music Visualization Wallpapers * OMA Client Provisioning * Phase Beam * Photo Screensavers * Picasa Uploader * Preset * Print Spooler * Quickoffice * Setup and Setup Wizard * Street View * Tags * Touchless Control * YouTube Can't disable (option to disable is greyed out) * Demo mode * Emergency Alerts * Messaging * MotoCare and MotoCareInt * Motorola Assist Framework * Motorola Notification * Motorola Services and Motorola Services Main * Motorola Slpc System * MotorolaOTA * NativeDropBoxAgent * Rescue Add-On: Motorola * Wireless Display, Wireless Display Service, Wireless Display Widget A lot of the com.android.*, com.motorola.*, and com.qualcomm.* looks useless, but I'd be worried about disabling them (and of course some can't be disabled).
