Thumbs down [Q] stock rom, how much bloat?

as someone who has hardly any need for gplus, facebook, etc... how much of the app memory is lost to that?

in practice, how much i can install until disk full messages?

bonus [Q2] any easy way to remove that bloat easily?

There's about 12 gb internal storage... Lots of space for apps i guess...
Removing bloat will need root...but you can disable the unneeded apps in settings-apps... Disabling won't free up space but it will prevent them from running and hide them from the drawer...

Memory is not as big of an issue with this device, as you've got an SD slot and your flavor of sizes to pick from.

I've said before and I'll say it again, I think the Sony ROM is one of the best stocks around. It does have some apps I never use (and freeze with Titanium), but it's not half as imposing as others like HTC. It's very easy on the eyes and has options I like.

The idea of softkeys on this phone defies logic to me, but I got rid of those on every ROM I've been on in favor of PIE. I want the screen space...
