    I am fairly new to Android and was wondering if disabling a application is the same thing as uninstalling it? If I disable a application does it still take up internal memory?

    Yes the memory is still used. But it does stop it from running. Not wonderful that you can't delete all bloatware, but better than Android 2.3 where nothing could be removed or disabled.

    Yeah that's the only thing I don't like about Android that you can't completely remove apps that I will never use. But I have 32 GB internal so I still have plenty of room. I may have to root my phone because I want these apps off my phone. Maybe with future updates it will allow you to uninstall these apps.

    Also depends on the device. Nexus and the Moto X were both near bloat free, as opposed to Samsung (which seems to be among the worst).

    Is rooting your phone a hard thing to do. I'm not a computer expert but I know my way around a computer. I know that you can brick your device doing this.

    Its not hard. You can possibly brick the device but, you almost have to try. Like using a root method for an LG on an HTC.

    What device do you have?

    I would search on YouTube. A guy named Zedomax does videos and they are easy to follow. Watch them a couple times and ask any questions, no matter how trivial before starting.
