    Can you guys also tell me which ones i should add to the list to make the phone perform better?

    The built in app manager only lets you disable so much. Should look into package disabled pro to take it to the next level.

    Are you asking for battery help? Is that what you mean by perform better? We have a thread where others are discussing battery stats and what to do to make them better. You can post in there as well but ensure to post your stats so others can help.

    I just installed package disabler pro and disabled 95% of the items in magenta. Now I lost my Battery icon I had in the settings and quick settings! I looked at the list of disabled items and can't tell which one has anything to do with that! Anyone have any ideas?

    Uncheck smart manager.
    I have a thread over on xda with a good basic XML file with 150 apps which are safe to disable. I have an extreme configuration as well that has over 200. Just Google note 5 xda debloating guide and you should see it.

    Yippee! It's back! Thank you very much! I wrote to the app developer and they had me send the string of disabled apps. We'll see if they are smart enough to know this. ;-)

    Thanks again! I have noted your guide for further research.

    I always have to ask on threads like these... Are you guys having problems before you disabled any of these? My Note 5 runs great, really great with just about nothing disabled. I always wonder about the need for this...

    Developer wrote me back in an hour and 15 min. Pretty quick and they too told me to enable Smart Manager. Cool.

    I do this for 2 reasons.

    1. If I don't want or need the app in question, I also don't want to be bothered when that app needs to be updated.

    2. It "un-clutters" the app drawer.

    I disable the stuff I know I'll never use. But I don't worry much about it. I don't stress over eliminating every possible app or process possible. IMHO people get way too concerned about micromanaging everything.

    I think it's better to let Android handle things and automatically self-optimize operation as it is designed to do. If given the chance, Android runs better and better as you use it. But you have to leave it alone or it can't optimize itself.

    Anyway, I just enjoy using the friggin' phone without futzing around much. Unless something is hogging CPU cycles and draining the battery it's not bothering me or slowing down the phone.

    For example, the Google App aka Google search. It just sits cached in a minimal amount of memory. No draw on system resources or battery. Why should I disable it? There's nothing significant to be gained. Besides, I might want to do a search.

    So google app is just google search? I disabled it cause i dont use search i just use google chrome. Will disabling google app cause google chrome to have issues?

    I think the Google app is just the search app but I don't know for sure. It could be part of other Google stuff, like maybe Google Now. I've never seen a good answer to the question, and I don't use Google Now, Google+, Google Apps or other stuff I would need working to test it myself. I doubt it has anything to do with Chrome, however.

    Google app is Google Now. So if you disable Google app you wouldn't have Google now. Google now does have increased battery usage, even when idle, as it polls location quite a bit.

    Disabled however won't affect Google chrome

    It is part of Google Now. There is a Google Voice search under "Voice Search" that is the voice commands without Google Now.

    The Google app is Google now. What you see when you hold the home button.
