Basically what I have done without any root, just using the app manager included stock. Does this not do the same thing? Disable I think it is? I basically disabled all Verizon, Amazon, NFL, apps that came bloatware.
Have you noticed any difdrence in battery performance since doing this from before? I did this from day one so can't really compare a difference myself. I can say battery is amazing g in which I can take it off the charger at 5:30am and around 3pm still have around 60% battery after being on 4g LTE, Bluetooth connected, texts, emails, calls, lots of tapatalk, some dead trigger 2. My last device under same work load would have 0% battery in same time frame.
