Hi, I am using Samsung s duos 2.
Is it safe to remove following inbuilt apps from my device.
Hangouts
Chat on
Chrome
Google pluse
Google drive
Paly news stand
Paly games
Drop box
Hp print services
Samsung print services
Samsung push services
And a few inbulit ring tones
Please help. Also suggest me which rooting procedure is best, as many of my friends ask me to use vroot. Can I unroot after removing those apps? I just need to get rid of above apps as they eat space on updates too and I dont need those apps.

don't delete any apps that say play( i mean the ones related to google play of course) since some of the "google play services" might stop working and suddenly you no longer have store and you'll need to download gapps again... other than that everything you mentioned is safe to remove, although some of it is great stuff, i don't see why you'd want it gone...

Most any (good) root app that'll let you uninstall system apps should also let you freeze them (as well as back them up). Titanium Backup is one of the best and most popular, Rom Toolbox Pro is great too. Before uninstalling anything, freeze it first, and use the phone for a while to see if any problems arise. If not, BACK IT UP before removing it. You can store your back-ups on your SD card, or save them to your computer. This way you can free up the space on your phone, but you can still put it back on your phone if you need to (for an OTA update or warranty service, for example).

Clean Master, besides being a great RAM booster and junk file cleaner, also has an app manager that (with root access) can do backups and uninstalls, but also sorts the apps into what's safe to uninstall and what shouldn't be uninstalled. Use this as a guide, but follow the steps above as well (you'll still need Titanium or Rom Toolbox or similar; pay the $6 or $8 or whatever it costs - it's worth it).
