"Titanium Backup". You have a lot of reading to do in the general threads. Depending on your firmware version will determine your available root methods. There's Kingo Root,Evilpotatoman's method etc.Read through the threads and then read again to make sure you grasp the methods.

The most effective way to remove bloat would be to root it, install titanium backup, and either uninstall or freeze applications.

Thanks guys, I wanted to unlocked and install 4.4 ROM on this, but it seems that ROM development is still underway so just wanted to know some quick ways to remove bloat on this phone.

I know lots of readings are necessary.
