    Sorry to be a noob here, but it seems to me that there are many more apps running on my Maxx than on my Gnex. I can't stand (even with the extra battery life) it, and I have a sneaky suspicion that some of the new advertisements I'm getting are related to some of these apps. A few seem obvious - Amazon app for example, but not all can be uninstalled. (I can't even seem to find the Amazon app to disable or uninstall - I just see it running.) I'm not prepared to root or anything like that, but are any of these OK to get rid of without causing problems? Thanks in advance

    most of the services are system services. disabling them would makes the OS/App crash often.

    the only think that might be safe to disable is DROID Command Center and MotoCare.
    disabling google service and google play service will make your phone almost inoperable and app crashes for sure..

    maybe SmartcardService but not sure

    from the ones you listed, command center, it's just a widget. also wireless display IF you can disable it. it wouldn't let me. i've already disabled a ton of things, more than just the apps. all these little services that you have to dig to find.
