    Do you have to manually clear data for each app or is it a one time button press? Seems like a lot of work to clear data 164 times!
    Was there ever an answer to this anywhere? Having to manually clear the data for each app in EZ Package Disabler? or is it one button press for all?

    I really fail to see the point. The stuff is still there, most likely has very little affect on performance, and may screw up something else. If you want a Nexus, buy one, trying to make another phone into one is pointless.
    You know, I hear what this person is saying on some level, but as someone who's done a fair amount of research in the psychological sciences, I have to admit that I've always been somewhat fascinated by these types of posts.

    There is, and I think this is not even up for disagreement at this point, a type of individual who feels deeply offended or at least irked when they run across people who do things differently than they do.

    If you look at the statement above, it's so unequivocal. Trying to make one phone into another is pointless they say. POINTLESS. There is no room for disagreement.

    Calling something pointless is fairly definitive. How can one possibly reach this conclusion without knowing much more information related to the person seeking to do so, however? I mean, when I first read the title of the thread, I could immediately image several reasons one would want to disable phone bloatware. Yet, here is someone who thinks it's pointless.

    I'll be honest, I'm not 100% sure what the psychological angle is here. My first inclination is that it's caused by a lack of abstract/critical thinking. Those with IQs of under (roughly) 110 begin to struggle, and those with IQs < 95 find it nearly impossible to understand what he/she has not experienced firsthand. Because of this, anything that meets this definition strikes the listener as patently offensive and probably even pointless.

    That being said, I'm reticent to think there are many < 95ers on a technology device message board.

    Perhaps I'm wrong.

    In any event, it was a fascinating reply, and if you'd care to expound, I wouldn't mind reading your rationale. In particular, do you really think it's completely without point? You can't see saved CPU cycles, greater available memory, and increased battery life? You don't think running programs use more power than disabled programs? Sure, it still takes up storage memory, but it takes no RAM or CPU cycles, and this saves the battery work. You can't see a best-of-both-worlds scenario where the consumer gets the phone of his choice, AND the Nexus-like lack of bloatware? Even if he can't have it, certainly the pursuit of such is not entirely pointless. I mean, what if he stumbles upon a way? Wouldn't that be awesome for the rest of us?

    Assuming you honestly don't see it, what is the point of telling someone that their endeavor is pointless? Why would you care, even slightly? After all, it doesn't harm you in the slightest? Why not be courteous, or lacking that, simply don't reply? It's interesting that you felt motivated to reply in such a negative manner. Does anonymity just make it too hard to resist, or would you go up and say that to a perfect stranger in real life? Do you live vicariously through the Internet, and do things you wouldn't otherwise do in real life, or are you really good with defending yourself?

    Understand that I'm not trying to be critical. I'm truly interested in the phenomenon.

    It's a useful app, but I only really use it to disable duplicate apps that appear in the Launcher. I use GNL so cannot hide them with that like you can in Nova.

    I've disabled the Microsoft apps, and some of the Samsung guff but none of the processes etc that I can't visibly see.

    Wow, I've hijacked a thread before, but gotta say this has topped my best effort to date.
    Thank you for your amateur psychological analysis, I am truly impressed. Best answer: I come from an engineering/nuclear quality/IS&T background, where many things are unequivocal, as you say, and I call things as I see them. And yes, I would say the same thing face to face if that was necessary. You also have misread or misunderstood my answer, you can analyze yourself on that as you wish.
    Further therapy opportunities will cost you $220/hr. And no, I don't accept Paypal.

    I personally find both of your guys post "pointless." As most people in this thread Probably ignored PJRed's original post as we obviously find some point to using the app. All the while just bumping the "pointless" thread...LOL!! I just love the irony of AndroidRex posting a pointless post calling out someones calling the thread pointless. Obviously just attempting to instigate even if it did kinda give me a chuckle.

    I would gladly buy this phone running stock Android, but was not impressed with this years Nexus offerings. So I purchased this phone and choose to disable some of the (not all) bloat and non-stock apps.

    Enough from me carry on everyone.... :P

    That's okay, I really don't care what you think.

    And, your post was pointless as you also can't seem to understand what my post said.

    It is also pointless.

    Does the OP (or anyone) know whether doing this is counter to any EULA or terms and conditions that came with buying that phone from that particular carrier? There may be certain processes a carrier wants active all the time and it's reflected in the terms and conditions, possibly the small print. It may be of some concern if a warranty was invalidated, for example.

    I can give you one reason why this is not pointless: hardware.

    A person can want the S7 hardware, but not the S7 software. As this is Android, there is really no need to compromise. Just buy the S7 and change the software. Get an AOSP ROM once available. Or just disable what you don't like. Just like how someone can like a specific laptop by HP/ASUS/Dell that ships with Windows but want doesn't like Windows Security or Windows Defender. Just get a different AV then.

    Exactly. The only reason I buy Samsung and Apple products is the hardware. I mostly loathe the software they put on their devices. But the hardware is so good that I put up with the bloat, at least until root comes out. However, I just couldn't live with iOS both times I tried an iPad (4th and 6th gens), even with tons of Cydia apps on them. Honestly, iOS is less user friendly and more weird dead-end bugs than Android has.

    I really hoped LG, Sony, HTC, and others would compete with Samsung hardware and let Verizon sell their flagship devices, but they didn't and I ended up with Samsung products against my will, haha. Now my family of three has Note5, Note4, S7E, S6, and a spare S4. I guess if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Just glad we got root for the Verizon S7Edge.

    That said, I've rooted my S7E, installed Xposed and 7 or 8 modules, Flashfire and the big zip fix, set up Greenify, Amplify, Titanium freezes, etc. to help battery life, and am seeing about 2% - 3% standby drain per hour on fairly weak 4G signal and was seeing about 1% stand-by drain per hour at home on strong WIFI. Pretty much exactly the same battery usage as before, though I suppose there is less potential for services and apps to use battery now that I've frozen 61 items. I do use AOD (always on display) and I have a Gear S2 watch connected to it. I didn't root it to save battery life, to be honest. I have wireless chargers all over the place, having used them for all my phones since the LG G2 came out, so my phones almost never dip under 50%. I root it for Xposed modules, Titanium/MyBackupPro, ad-blocking that doesn't use as much battery as AdGuard VPN does (8% - 10% of my battery life seemed to go to AdGuard), other root-only apps like Sixaxis and Viper4A, and just tweaking the UI to my liking.

    Sorry for the rambling on...
