    We need more information. You are posting in the Google edition thread but I doubt you have that device (as there is no real bloat on that device). So which carrier do you have to start with. Next are you wanting to remove them entirely or just hide them? To remove them will require rooting your phone to do that. If you just want to hide them you can do that in a few ways. One, you can disable many via the settings>apps section. Choose your app you want to disable, then choose . . disable :-)

    Be careful doing this as some apps are dependant on other apps so don't go disabling things without any sense of how it will impact the rest of the system.

    Another option is to use a custom launcher like nova or apex to hide them from the app drawer so they are for all intents gone (but some like maps or Google now will likely still run in the background)

    Are you sure you have a Galaxy S4 Google play edition phone? Or do you have a regular GS4? The GS4 GPE doesn't come with unwanted apps or bloatware.

    Thats still not the google play edition. What you have is the regular s4. You cant delete some apps only hide them.
