Default [Q] Bloat freezing

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.

Sent from my GT-N7000 using XDA App
Favourite apps: QuickPic (gallery, setting of homescreen & lockscreen wallpaper), AppZorter (sorts apps in TouchWiz), AndRecorder (clear recording of sounds), World of Goo (mentally stimulating game), SnowDeer Web Scrapper (saves entire webpage as image), MobileOdin(flash new ROMs without sweat), Taptu (quick & elegant feed reader), Gemini App Manager (prevents apps from auto starting in rooted phones), EzPDF Reader (good range of features), MX Video Player (versatile video player).

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.
