First of all I love this device. Had the s5 and the m8 and this one is overall the better device. Anyways, the notification bar has Google search and Sony app which is annoying and the app switcher comes up a little slow and has those small apps. Anyway to fix these or do I need root for that? Thanks.

Yeah, I've tried GravityBox and a bunch of other Xposed modules but cannot seem to get rid of the mini apps in the app switcher...

I was able to uninstall the small apps in the recent apps panel with titanium backup. No issues, but it isn't that much faster.
