    I got a new Moto G phone today & i have done some battery saving tweaks but i want to disable all the system apps and other apps that i dont need.

    I have disabled the obvious ones that i dont need like a lot of google apps like google+ etc.

    So is there a list of what is safe to disable?

    many thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! Some people have probably come up with a list, but disabling an app is harmless. So you can always try it yourself, and if it causes problems, then just re-enable it.

    Thanks. I have disabled the obvious ones i wont need. Are the ones with the wee android icon system apps and best left alone?

    Probably. You could list some, and we could give you our opinions on which ones to disable.

    Disabling an app really doesn't do anything. It still takes up storage space, and if it's not being run, it's just "being" in storage, it doesn't use CPU time or battery. (If it has to run and it's disabled, you'll get some kind of error.)
