Default [Q] Which apps to disable?

So far, I've frozen all verizon apps, useless google apps and services (they know who they are...) and several other useless apps and services.


This is my list of disabled Samsung apps & services:

Samsung Calendar SyncAdapter
Samsung Cloud Data Relay
Samsung Cloud Quota
Security Policy Updates (probably Verizon...)

What other Samsung apps/svc can be disabled or uninstalled?

Here is the list (for copy/paste convenience):

Samsung contents agent
Samsung Hub
Samsung Link
Samsung Print Services
Samsung Push Service
Samsung SBrowser Sync Adapter
Samsung SNote3 Sync Adapter
Samsung Sync Adapters
Samsung Text to Speech Engine
Samsung Updates
Samsung Hub Updater
Samsung Sans

Any other recommended disables/uninstalls?

Thanks!

Here is a link to my post with a list showing all of the stock apps that I removed. You can delete the rest of the Samsung apps but sans is a font I believe.

I never had any issues with all of them deleted but it depends on your setup also.

For reference, I haven't experienced any issues. I think I'll just leave them Disabled for the moment, though, as one day I may want to try one of the Samsung protocols to link to one of our other phones for file or media transfer and find that I need one or the other.

I haven't had any low strength issues. It may be coincidental. Does your signal strength get better in other locations?

You could review the uninstalled apps/services to determine if any of them pertain to signal and re-enable. You could also just re-enable all of the apps/services you disabled before your signal strength issues occurred to see if they go away.

It's also recommended that you nandroid (SS backup) your device before making these kind of changes. Having a nandroid, if I were to have issues, I would make another nandroid of my current (changed) setup, then restore my previous setup to see if the issue exists there.
