Default [Q] What apps is safe to remove from Xperia Z?

Just rooted my Xperia Z and installed Titanium backup, now I can start to remove all the bloatware from the phone. What are the apps I can remove safely without compromising phone's normal performance?

You can disable it - problem solved But I agree, for those who are rooted, it's best to get rid of what you don't need to...

BTW. they should really STOP putting all this FB/Twitter crap on our phones... you can get those from Play, no need to put it as a "factory app" that can't be removed
