    I just got the phone and LOVE it. Just not going to root it right off the bat and would like to get a list of the Verizon bloat i can take off the phone/disable and stop updates for. I am sure there is a list somewhere i just haven't been able to find it. Please link one in my post would really appreciate it. I have removed all amazon stuff didn't know if google stuff was safe to disable. Just hoping to get some more battery life!

    1. Removing apps will not save battery life if you never launch the programs in the first place.
    2. If you truly want to remove them you need to root. Other just look on xda under Verizon s4 and you will find what you are looking for

    That com.sec.android.sCloudSync process is really annoying. Its not working properly on my S4 , crashes all the time and its screwed up my Google Calender as the two are tied up.

    Something else, looks like you can go through the apps you Disable, and clear their data to free up some storage (if you're really never going to use the apps).

    It will save battery if the apps start on bootup by default. And some of them do. The annoying Caller ID app comes to mind, for instance.

    Something put up the 4g icon even on WiFi, and I think it was really caller ID (was one of the bundled apps, since went away once I disabled a bunch of the fluff).

    QUESTION:

    i just went down this list and disabled them except I stopped at Samsung account.
    the above comment says;

    If you truly want to remove them you need to root.

    I just plan old simple disabled and unchecked the 'show notifications' checkmark..

    is this adequate. ???

    That's not entirely true, quite a few apps consistently run in the background using very important battery power. My note 4, set up my way has 33 apps consistently running in the background.
