    Recently there was a message about running out of phone storage. About the same time there was a security one about "no threats" found in the play store. I should hope not. I put two and two together and apparently the four is to disable, i. e., roll back updates of apps I seldom or never use. Sure enough, that seemed to take care of the problem, but I'd rather not have to do that in the first place. How do I prevent automatic updates, and how do I get rid of unwanted "builtin" apps without rooting (although I dearly would like to root this S5)?

    No, I haven't. That might have something to do with it. I used to have to do that with a phone that had only 8 gb, but I thought I had escaped it. Another thing I noticed is that some of the apps I downgraded seemed to have disappeared from the list, until I found a couple of them tacked on at the end. Why would it do that?

    You just turn off automatic updates in the Play Store app. That's it. Unfortunately you will still be notified of them, and the ones you don't want to install will still clutter up your update list in the Play Store app. If you don't use the apps though you can disable them, which removes all updates and prevents any new ones coming.

    (I'm assuming these are system apps you are talking about, otherwise you would just uninstall the ones you don't use - and of course you wouldn't have an "uninstall updates" button).

    Yes, these are unfortunately bloatware I apparently can't get rid of without rooting. Is there a way to root the S5 with 6.0.1? The only phone I have rooted was a Kyocera Rise, years ago, with a pc, and that took days.

    He's saying that if you have a custom recovery you can flash a superuser package to root it.

    Of course you need to have a custom recovery first. Which mean you need to be able to unlock the bootloader. How easy that is may depend on what variety of S5 this is (there are many different models, Exynos and Snapdragon are different, and carrier models, especially US carrier models, will tend to be locked-down harder). You need someone who knows the device to suggest ways of doing this.
