If anyone is not wanting to root, but speed up your device just do what I did.

If you go into the app drawer and click the capacitive settings button, you can select the option to uninstall/disable apps. Some of the samsung and google ones are in folders within the app drawer. By disabling trip advisor, knox, news week, various Samsung apps, etc. I sped up a lot. No custom Rom or launcher needed. I actually enjoy using this thing now.

Hmm... This is probably a dumb question, but if you can disable Knox, would you be able to avoid the issues that come along with rooting?

Have you noticed a difference in battery life?

How did you disable Knox? The option is grayed out.

I do not even see the stock apps. Just my stuff. What do I need to do to see them. I cannot find such an option anywhere. Thanks!

You open the app drawer not app manager. Knox and some of the other apps are grouped in the Samsung, Galaxy Plus and Google folders.

Once you open the app drawer touch the settings button to the left of the home button. You will then see the option uninstall/disable apps, after you click that option the apps that can be disabled or uninstalled will have a red - beside them. System apps will be disabled and non-system will be uninstalled.

Noticed a slight improvement in battery life, maybe a tad less lag ...?

Ahh. You need to be using touchwiz to do this. I was using nova launcher and the option was not available. Now to see if they actually stay off. Business week and a few others have kept turning themselves back on without me touching them in the past.
