    Anyone know the consequence of turning from "enable" to "disable" each app in "App Manager" and "More" and "Modify System Settings"? Will anything stop working or syncing, or any other important function, especially if disable Samsung or Google apps, or any app that came loaded when bought phone? I am just setting a new S7. The phone came with many apps set on "enable" and the phone says this is what leaving on "enable" does: "Select which apps can change system settings, such as turning Bluetooth on or off." Yikes! I don't want ANY apps changing system settings on their own. HOWEVER, I learned that turning off many things in the phone settings can have unexpected bad consequences (like turning off synch with Samsung calendar if do not plan to use). Can't find ANY info on which apps that come with the phone MUST have the "enabled" turned on in the "Select which app can change system settings...", particularly Samsung, Google, or Android apps. ANYONE know about this?

    Hi, all the apps on the phone will need to remain as "enabled" or else the phone companies wouldn't include them - there are such things as bloatware, which can be "disabled" why don't you list the apps you're looking to disable and we can tell you if it's a bad idea or not.
