    Default Freeing up memory

    Anyone know if installing a custom ROM will help get rid of some of the bloatware thus freeing up some RAM on the S5?

    Installing a Rom like stock android should result in less ram usage overall,touchwiz is a heavy android skin when compared to stock android or HTC sense

    You can also disable the apps you don't use. I have TouchWiz disabled...along with pretty much the rest of the Samsung and AT&T apps.

    Cool thanks. Also, by disabling TouchWiz, do you mean using Basic Mode?

    Or Easy Mode or whatever it's called.

    You can use another launcher which will help some. If you are on well any US carrier you can't get past the bootloader so custom ROMs are not happening, and some carriers you can't even root yet, I think T-Mo (maybe) is the only one you can. The issue is TW is a pig in terms of space and the bloatware apps that Samsung sees as a benefit suck up even more space which is a joke.

    Disabling apps doesn't free up space just what is eating up RAM in terms of running in the background. Its an issue and why we want a 32GB VERSION.
