Reflash the rom and get it working properly, then if or when you decide to delete apps instead
of deleting them, rename the app extender from .APK to AP_ just in case something does not
work properly so you will have a backup next time.
Then instead of deleting or renaming many apps all at once, do only 1 or 2 at a time then check
the phone out for a couple days to be sure that everything is working properly.
Many of the samsung touchwiz apps depend on more than just a simple apk that's why S voice
stopped working for you.
If you are on the original stock rom you will need to Odin flash it unless you are interested in
flashing a custom pre-rooted rom using cwm or twrp recovery.
If you decide to flash a custom rom, give the Wicked v7 a try, it's a excellent full feature custom
rom which is already debloated so you would not need to delete or rename any files.
Have a great day, enjoy!
Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than it takes to type "thank you"
(unless you type very fast).
