    I'm in the process of disabling / uninstalling unwanted apps. There are 4 ANT apps (example, ANT Radio Service, which sounds needed) that I'm wondering if I can Disable before I start updating all my apps? Safe to disable or should I leave them alone? Thank you!

    Anything not safe to disable, like for example the phone or settings 'app', should be blocked from disabling. ANT is really just used with a lot of fitness (heart rate monitors, etc) devices you could connect to the phone.

    You should be able to find them in the Play Store. If you go under My Apps in the Play Store and swipe over to all it will list out even the disabled apps and you can select one and view it's Play Store page. The stock Samsung apps (the phone app, calender, messages, etc) won't be in there though.
