It's annoying that there are apps almost every week that need to be updated. For example stuff like Amazon and the worst is the NFL app. Anyway I wanted to uninstall some of these apps through application manager but it seems that apps that came with the phone can't be uninstalled. There is no uninstall option. The only time there is a uninstall option is when it's a app I installed myself. So the only option I have for apps that came with the phone are as follows, Force stop, uninstall updates and Disable. There is a option show notifications it's currently tick yes. What I want to know should I choose the option Disable only and that will stop the prompting of pending updates available and to stop checking for updates. Is this what I should do ? When I select the option force stop it gives me a warning saying: the app may misbehave. When I select the Disable force stop it gives me a warning saying: If you disable a built in app, other apps may misbehave & your data will also be deleted. Should I just untick the show notifications box ? Will I extend battery life by disabling these apps ? I have a LG G2 by the way and is it just LG that does not allow customers to uninstall apps or does moto x,sony,samsung and others do the same ? Last question: A verizon app called Verizon Support & Protections keeps asking me if I want it to protect my phone, from virus/malware and whatnot, do I really need that crap on my phone ?
