Hi guys. I'd like to ask you for some suggestions regarding removing bloat from the Note.

Which apps are most useless, resource consuming and at the same time safe to get rid of?

My intention is to freeze the crap out of my phone to make it snappier.

Any opinions appreciated

Here's a great list of preinstalled apps and what they do. It was made for the GSII, but most of it is still applicable to the Note.

Can I freeze the bloatware without rooting? I'm tired of rooting and flashing my phones and would like to wait for ICS to be installed via Kies.

No, you need root to freeze apps.

I totally get where you're coming from, but I'm sure we've got many months ahead of us before Samsung releases ICS. Just think of it as a little bit of effort for long term performance benefits.

You really use all of these programs ?
Un-install with Titanium, that's all I do.

I took out the usual suspects i removed from all my previous galaxy devices using root explorer and placing them into a folder on sd card incase of any issue, took out about 20 or so last night with no provlems and will hunt down the oddly named APKs that are in the system folder that i wont need and which however did not appear in the apps draw (non system related apps)

For example, Zinio was preinstalled on my device in System/Apps however was not present at all in the apps lists.
