i'm trying my best to look for a list made by an expert
What I might stress to you is if you're not a techie I would absolutely NOT recommend you going any further than uninstalling/disabling items from the App drawer. If something goes sideways (And things very much can) and you don't know how to fix it, you are REALLY asking for trouble.
Typically there can be quite a few items in the app drawer that can be removed or disabled.

Just my opinion.......

More than half eat the battery. The rest annoys me and I don't need it. I set my example.
I own a Nokia 6110i with no pen! :)

That list is insane. You may as well sell the Note and buy a Nokia 3210.

You really won't gain any real world performance improvements. I can understand if you're paraniod/extra secure, and want to remove Facebook etc.

But you're killing a lot of the phones functionality.
I knew this thread was going to crater like the moon🤣🤭🤣
Chainsaw wart removal.
Some of the worst offenders are needed at least once a day. Some on the "list" just sit there and do nothing unless needed... dependencies, dependencies, dependencies if not there many other functions aren't either. You also overlooked two prime offenders, Google backup Transport and Framework. Turn off all the bloody animations and use the Good Lock family of apps... for starters.

OP this is not the way to learn what to disable.
It took me over a year to learn how to optimize my 10+. Each device variant and user are different. You need to learn what does the hard way by researching the apk/service in question and most of all by playing with it.

The shotgun approach shown here is a mess. I use a package disabler so I can toggled apks on/off easily on the fly. While many are always disabled, a dozen or so are not. It also allows me to ID dependencies and easily correct mistakes.
Many things are simply turned on/off like location, bluetooth as I need them. To make the most of an Android you need to understand what does what... it's a learning process and it has to be a user interactive one to get the most from it. I toggle things on and off now automatically almost without thinking. To get to this point there's a lot to think through, to plan and setup.
No free rides.
I really like playing with Androids which is why I learn. It's almost impossible to crash a stock Android.

My OS load is stock, over a year old, still running fast, very stable and it fulfills its mission. SOT is running an average of 9%@hr, 7% for browsing and 11% for streaming vids.
At one time it was a hot running, battery eating hog... now it does what I want it to do😎
