    I don't really have a need to flash a new ROM but is there a mechanism (without unlocking bootloader) to remove apps that aren't necessary for functionality of the phone (specifically Facebook and Google apps with the exception of maps and translate)? From info it looks as though if I unlock the bootloader the fingerprint scanner can no longer be used and I don't want that to happen.

    I dont know, but you could erase facebook, instagram with titanium backup app, but it needs root access.
    I think you cannot erase google apps, its Android after all.

    Also, unlocking your bootloader does not break anything, you will still be able to use the fingerprint scanner like before.
