Asus Zenfone has stock android without bloatware .. why this thread is created ??
Agreed that we have near stock android and most of the apps can be disabled in settings.
But with the method mentioned below, app will never wake up to consume battery and will be uninstalled for current user.
Also ADB is way faster than individually selecting and disabling apps.
You need to enable USB debugging and have ADB setup. (Refer https://www.xda-developers.com/quickly-install-adb/ is you are new to these things.)
Now once you have device connected via USB, run adb devices command to see if your device is connected via ADB.
Adb

Now copy and run the commands from below list for the app which you want to remove.
This will remove apps for current user and will return in case of factory reset. So if you mess something up, do factory reset to get out of trouble.
In case the command fails then the app is already removed .. so no negative impact / issue in that case

Thanks Man,

Also I suggest all to backup the apk file before uninstalling. Do it using App Backup And restore application.

You need to set setting to show System Application.

Note : I uninstalled Launcher3 application and changed to NOVA. Later double tap to sleep went wrong. And finger print scanner again asking to enter pattern.

Share command to uninstall Google GMAIL app.

Just for information.This method does not remove programs from system (apk).Tried to remove the program on the phone with root.The apk file remained in place, but the Android thought that there was no program in the system.Because memory is not released.This method is very convenient for the fact that the program did not work in the background and to disable auto-update Fota.
