    A little info for those with a AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5:

    Samsung has said they added 40 apps of Bloatware to their AT&T. AT&T wanted these added to their Samsung Galaxy S5. Well, I have a list of 36 items that I disabled and also unchecked 'show notifications' and disabled "GPS". This procedure has not harmed the operation of my phone in any way. You can always turn GPS back when you need it. Here's the list in photos. Hope this helps. It seems to definitely increased my battery life.

    You're gonna consider Chrome bloatware?

    Why buy an Android phone if you're going to disable all of Google's apps, even Google search?

    You'll run into problems having Google search disabled. I love the smart remote, that's one of my favorite features on this phone. My list of disabled apps does look very similar though.

    Why do you have the calculator disabled? Lol

    I don't like or use Google search, they track. Laugh if you want but I use duckduckgo, they don't track or store cookies. I don't need a bunch of nosey bastards. I also don't like the stock calculator, downloaded I like. To each his bubba.

    Well, at least with Android you can make the choice between Google Search or duckduckgo.

    Smart Remote app is one of my favorite features. Had it on the S4. Love it! I put my Samsung TV remote controller away. This and using my phone to cast via Chromecast is amazing.
