    You can disable most of that stuff. There really isn't a reason why not. I would just stick to blatantly obvious stuff like the ones you mentioned. If they have a .com or the Android guy as the app icon, leave them be.

    I did forget to mention something. Google Settings is kind of important, if you want to activate Android Device Manager to remotely wipe your phone.
