Hello fellow XperianSP's ...

I noted that there are so many system apps that I don't actually use, or apparently do not use.

Take, for instance. Xperia™ with Flickr. I already have the Flickr app, and the latter allows me greater control of uploading. So, I do not need that app, right?

Also, the Xperia Link™ app. The description on Play Store explicitly said that it's used to connect the SP with an Xperia Tablet or Vaio PC, neither of which I have. So, it should be safe to remove, no? My laptop can satisfactorily tether (via WiFi) to the SP anyways.

If you have a list of system apps safe to delete -- or, at the very least, freeze using Titanium Backup -- I'd be very grateful if you share.

TIA!

Here is a detailed list

It explains which can be removed safely and the description of each one...
Some apps may not be there so you'd better check out the list that @greek_assassin mentioned above.

Thanks for the input, people!

I'm chronicling my de-bloatware-ing experience in the following Google Docs spreadsheet:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

I'll continually update the spreadsheet as I go beyond Freezing to Uninstalling and/or finding more apps to Freeze/Uninstall.

(Do note that the list might not exactly match stock ROM because I'm running eXistenZ Ultra 3.3.0)

Can try System App Remover. It gives some recommendation on what can be removed (but you can remove more!).

Yes
I had already deleted some bloatwares from my phone.and its safe and beneficial to RAM also..Some of the Sony apps are eating RAM very much.
And eating battery also.
So removing bloatwares helps to Device perfomence better.

Undoubtedly. Of that, I have no objection.

The question was: Which bloatware apps are safe to remove.

As I've written above, and will now repeat, I'm doing experimentation through trial-and-error, and sharing the results for the world via this Google Drive spreadsheet:
