    same way but you need to uninstall any updates that you have done first for the bloatware. Then you can disable them.

    Hmm. I'm brand new to the Android scene so I'm not even sure which are bloatware or even how to Uninstall any updates. I'll do my research. Thanks

    Ok figure out how to stop the updates. Now I just have to figure how which are bloatware. I'm hesitant to disable something that shouldn't be

    Any app that you don't think you'll ever use is bloatware. For me, even the Voice Mail app is bloat.

    Some apps are carrier-specific.

    dont disable any android/google apps. i remember i uninstalled one by mistake on a rooted phone + it stopped the playstore etc from workin. u cant really do much harm by just disabling apps but basicly only disable ones that u can see in ur app drawer but dont use (bloatware)

    What is the voice mail app? Seems like a stupid question, but I have never seen a VM app before and always had VM functionality on my phones!

    Don't disable those. When we're talking about bloatware, we mean in your app listing, not all the services and stuff. For example, open up the app tray. If you click and hold any of those apps, drag them to the "app info" area on the bottom. It will tell you about the app, and give you the option to disable. Some apps (bloatware, or any preinstalled app) will require that you uninstall updates first, but that option is in the same place i just told you. I'd say as long as you're just dragging the actual apps like that, you probably won't disable any important service. If you do find something not working right, simply re-enable whatever you last disabled to make it work again. Shouldn't run into any problems. I got rid of almost all the google and samsung apps this way, because I don't use a lot of them. I did keep the important ones for me though.

    I turned on Power Saving and checked only CPU power and background and I've seen a BIG improvement in battery life with no lag or issues.
