I did the same on my razr HD when I found a comprehensive list of what each of the apps are doing. I froze some apps on my note 3 already, but the ones I wasn't sure of wether they're needed or not I didn't touch.

Also would be nice to have a guide about safe deleting of several ROM items like Wallpapers or Sounds (and other things) in a way to free up space for our own apps, and have a Slimmer ROM..

What dou you think?

Sounds great, but my first goal is to make some kind of spreadsheet with good information about every app that can be frozen and what the purpose is of that specific app.
And this will take a a lot time.
When done, we will see.

Why don't you just throw it up on Google Docs and iterate slowly - and also getting the community to chip in. Like so -

Would be also good to get a level of battery usage.

Like High Medium Low. Know it would take ages but maybe make a collaborative piece so we can all help out!

My experience with freezing is that it will save some battery, but don't expect miracles.
For example, without freezing i will lose about 1% a hour at standby and now i will lose less 0.5%.
But every % is one :).
And i just hate it when i spent a lot of money to buy a nice expensive smartphone, it is loaded with bloatware i don't use and eating resources.

I couldn't find a list of apps that could be frozen last Saturday, but I found one via the forums search for the Galaxy S4. So if you really want to make a google spreadsheet, I would start with the S4 one as a template as it already contains a lot of information about apps that can be found on the note 3. I just checked through the spreadsheet to verify that I didn't freeze anything I need (I looked up which apps run in the background and then checked the spreadsheet before freezing an app). But having a complete list with info about what app-freeze impacts what other apps would be great too. Just found out this morning that I couldn't send SMS as I mistakenly froze the messaging app :silly:

    And don't forget, every one is using there phone differently, we all use different apps so look at the list and remember that although some marked safe to remove, it can be something you want to use :).

    My advice is not to listen to this thread. I removed some apps that made my s note stop working.

    Just freeze them with TB or use greenfy.

    Come again?
    I think you are missing the point of this thread.
    Also, i never will say to people to remove apps, but always advice to just freeze first and test all for some days before removing if want it to.
