Default Removing S Finder and Quick connect from Notification Panel?

I'm loving this phone, I came from a Galaxy S4 and it was definitely worth the upgrade, but the "S Finder" and "Quick connect" buttons in the notification drawer are bugging me since I have no intention of ever using either app. I looked through the settings and I didn't notice anything to disable this unlike how you can turn off the recommended apps (earphones). I already tried to see if you could turn the apps off in the application manager but it's not an option. Anyone figure out if this is possible?

i'm hoping there's a custom ROM before my return window closes...this could be an amazing phone but TW is so inconsistent.

i just came from a Note3 with an AOSP ROM and it's been a rough transition for me.

***i know: it's SO HARD going from one 6-month-old flagship to another just because i have too much unsupervised free time...right?

I can either be 'smart' or I can be 'pretty'; today, we're going with 'pretty.'

S Finder is a search app, by typing a few letters of anything, it will search almost anything on the phone apps, messages, contacts, email, notes etc.
