    Hi Nightjar, and welcome to AF :)

    If these are pre-installed apps, almost certainly not I'm afraid. They will be on the system partition, and you will need root permissions to change them.

    Sorry. I'm not sure what Android version the Ace 2 runs, but ICS onward let you hide or disable apps, which should achieve much the same result as uninstalling them.

    OP, what version of the OS is your phone running? If you're 4.0 or higher, you can DISABLE stock apps that you don't want to use. It removes them from your app tray, prevents you from using them, and they receive no updates. It's as close to deletion as you'll get.

    Well, if it helps you to know this for the future, disabling apps is actually a feature that Google touted when they announced the version that you're running currently on your handset. It's not that you have to use it, but it's a nice way to deal with bloatware/crapware, without actually messing up your device.
