    Why do you want to delete these apps? Is your phone not running properly?

    Don't worry about it. Android does an excellent job of automatically managing running processes and memory for you.

    Relax and enjoy your phone.

    None.

    This is the reason why.

    Why don't you just not delete them? Most people don't delete anything that they did not install themselves and have no issues with the phone. Trying to delete stuff you don't know what it is for can cause harm for little or no gain.
