    Is there a list of bloatware that can safely be removed? I have looked all over the net but can’t find anything. All I can find are lists of apps that can be removed but no explanation as to what they do. Some are self-explanatory, but I would feel more comfortable knowing that if I try to open an app I won't get a forced close notice slapping me in the face. "com.android.app.minimode.res" <<< what is this and why do I need?

    I just wanted to say that I took a risk and disabled com.android.app.minimode.res & com.sec.android.ofviewer. I have not experienced anything negative and the phone seems to operate more smoothly.

    I usually leave the apps that start with "com."

    I usually think like that, but it seemed like there was a preinstalled app causing a minor problem. I guess I have OCD or something like it because that problem was driving me nuts. That's why I asked what I asked on here and I did a very in depth google search. I couldn't find a list of preinstalled applications that satisfied me so I ended up playing Russian Roulette. So far it seems like I did a good thing, but time will be the ultimate experience.

    Golfdriver97 you helped me realize that those were the only two apps that start with com. that can be disabled.
