    Pardon me if there is already a thread on this, but let's talk about trimming down the Verizon S5 and removing bloat.

    I just bought an S5 and coming from the Galaxy Nexus, it is quite slick. However, coming from a Nexus device, it is really full of stuff I don't want or need.

    So far, I've disabled the following apps (which I couldn't seem to remove completely, just disable):

    Amazon Kindle, MP3, and Appstore
    Audible
    NFL Mobile
    Slacker


    There seems to be some kind of built in music player, but I don't want that either. I subscribe to Google Play Music. So I'm thinking of disabling that built in music player as well.

    I'm sure there's a ton more stuff, but I've only had a few hours with the phone so far and I'm trying to get work done. haha

    Well, for one the weather on the lock screen doesn't work. Took me forever to find out why, and good ol' unified daemon was the culprit.
