    Sorry of this has been addressed in the past.

    I would like to remove a few "useless" Samsung applications, like the mini diary, reader's hub, etc. However I would not want to break anything.

    Does anyone know what default Samsung applications it is safe to get rid of? I would like to get a "pure" Android experience, and can not stand the bloat.

    Thanks.

    Hello

    Have a look here for apps that can be removed

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1069924

    A simpler solution would be to flash a ROM that has these removed already, i would look at the NEAT ROM thread if i were you and think about flashing the latest 4.4 Neat LITE

    You would need to be rooted to do this but you would also need to be rooted to remove those apps you dont like


    Cheers

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums AlvaroK! :)

    Both of these methods require you to be rooted...

    1. You could flash a ROM that has already had all the, "bloatware", removed, such as NEAT LITE ROM.

    2. You can manually remove the, "bloatware", by carefully following these step-by-step instructions, here. This gives access to 2 spread sheets of removable items for GB, ICS and JB firmwares.

    EDIT For some strange reason, AF took so long in uploading my reply that kelis32 has pipped me to the post. :thumb:
