    I would advise staying away from removing apps except for things like metro apps or carrier specific apps. Most of the Samsung included apps are so intertwined with each other that you remove one they all crash.

    A good general rule is that if it doesn't have an icon in the app drawer and you don't know exactly what it does leave it alone.

    You are talking total BS. I had over 230 system apps, now I have 46 and my system runs fine!
