    I'm on Verizon.

    Fyi, if you're curious what the "com.android.providers.partnerb..." is, that's what causes the partner bookmarks to show up in Chrome, and I think it's Verizon specific. If you've noticed those and wanted to know how to delete them, you need to disable this app and they will go away. They cannot be deleted like regular bookmarks through Chrome itself.

    Verizon disables the FM chip, but that doesn't bother me. I don't listen to it much, and have a radio handy if I do want to. Usually I'm listening to podcasts, audio books, or Pandora.

    Edit: I've also disabled the built in calculator. I have the G3 calculator app side loaded now so I can use it with Qslide.

    Good list, why disable WebView? I get the rest, that one confuses me.

    Good question, because I didn't manually disable it. I also noticed the enable button was greyed out, and enabling it from the Play store wasn't working either. A quick search brought up this thread.

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho...d.php?t=653247

    I disabled Chrome, and was able to enable System Webview. It appears to be a Nougat thing, and can't have both enabled at the same time. I'm now wondering if this is the cause of Chrome not working right with Facebook picture uploads. I need to look into this more.

    I still use plastic, and I have Peel for a remote app because it also gives me a listing guide.

    Quick update, I disabled Chrome, updated System Webview, then enabled Chrome again. System Webview was again automatically disabled, but now Facebook looks to function right again. Go figure...

    Did you disable Chrome first? According to the thread I linked above, the two won't run together in Nougat. That also means the update option won't be available in Play if Chrome is still enabled.

    Hit the ... in the top right and tap show system apps. That reveled a few more things that I wanted to disable.

    So basically Chrome is replacing WebView in Nougat, which is what devs would use when they wanted to display web pages/content in their apps.

    Google explains how Chrome will become WebView in Android 7.0

    "Android has long provided a way for developers to show web content in apps without implementing a full browser with WebView, but the nature of this component has changed a lot over the years. It became Chromium-powered, was unbundled from the system, and then got a beta channel. Starting in Android 7.0 Nougat, WebView will actually be Chrome.


    For Chrome to handle WebView rendering, you'll need to be on v51 or higher with Android 7.0. The default behavior in this instance will be for the Chrome APK on your device to render Android System WebViews. Google says this is more memory-efficient than using the current WebView. The standalone WebView APK will no longer be updated via the Play Store as long as the Chrome rendering remains enabled on your device.

    Should you want to change the WebView rendering mode, that will be in developer options under "WebView implementation." You can choose between v51 or a higher build of Chrome (stable, beta, dev) on your device or the regular WebView APK."
