    First off, use my root method here.

    Once you finish that and you are properly rooted, download AppMgr III

    Open it, click the ≡ symbol in the top left and go to Root Only Functions and check off ALL boxes (obviously grant root access as well).

    Go back to main AppMgr III screen and click the "Movable" tab

    Select all apps and move them to SD card.

    Done!

    You can also use System App Remover to remove apps like:
    MetroID
    MetroZone
    App Store (Metro one with the @ symbol)
    Google Play Movies
    Google Play Music
    Google Duo
    Etc.

    DO NOT DELETE LG APPS, just go to Settings > Apps and Disable them. Otherwise you may soft-brick your device!

    I've freed up about 30% of my Internal Storage and have a 64gb SD card in so I'll never have to worry about app space!

    Removing system apps won't save you any space as those live in a different partition. If you uninstall updates to them and clear their data (both of which happen automatically if you disable them) you have saved all the space you can with those apps, and doing that doesn't require root.

    Yea, but with that the AppMgr III saves space.

    Can't hurt, might help.
    When you removed those apps did anything else work better? @brad2192?

    Well a lot less pop-ups for starters. No MetroPCS annoyances or LG Apps bothering me. And all of the updates with the system apps reduce the space taken dramatically. The battery life is better as well as many of the bloatware apps like Lookout are not constantly running. The only real downfall of the phone is the internal storage but I love how AppMgr automatically moves all apps that can be moved to the SD. So I've got about 5 pages of apps and I am using about 50% internal storage used.
