MIUI is known for it's bloatware and there are some of us who want the best of both worlds, a simple ROM with good looks.... so here comes Titanium Backup (or any other Root Uninstaller app) to the rescue! I've tested deleting all these apps and used the ROM for quite some time without any FCs or bugs. This is the list on MIUI v6 5.1.9 (9th January 2015 Update).
  • Android Live Wallpapers
  • Apps
  • Assistant
  • Bank Cards
  • Basic Daydreams
  • Black Hole
  • Bubbles
  • Games
  • Google Pinyin Input
  • Live Wallpaper Picker
  • Magic Smoke Wallpapers
  • Music Visualization Wallpapers
  • Phase Beam
  • Photo Screensavers
  • Tags
  • A Chinese App (with an Orange/Green location symbol icon)
  • Another Chinese App (with the Mi logo under a roof)

NOTE: When you update your ROM to the latest MIUI Dev Rom, it brings all the bloatware with it sadly.

as promised, this is the list of apps I used to delete when I was using miui V6 (I always manually delete the apk's from /system/app or /system/priv-app with a root file manager, namely ES File Manager, rather then freezing apps with titanium app or similar)

of course this is safe here, but some of the following may be useful for someone, so be sure what the following apks are for, before deleting them Btw in case of any problems, you can always extract the apk's you deleted from the miui zip, put them back in system/app or system/priv-app folders, correct permissions, and reboot.. easy )

/system/app

AntHalService
BasicDreams
BugReport
CellBroadcastReceiver
CloudService (never used miui cloud-miui account)
Email (I use gmail instead)
Galaxy4
GameCenter
HoloSpiralWallpaper
HTMLViewer
LiveWallpapers
LiveWallpapersPicker
MagicSmokeWallpapers
Mipay
MiuiSuperMarket (I use play store instead)
MiuiVideo (I use mxplayer instead)
NoiseField
Notes (I use keep instead)
O2O
PaymentService
PhaseBeam
PhotoTable
PicoTts
Stk
VisualizationWallpapers
VoiceAssist




/systemp/priv-app

Backup (I just rely in cwm/twrp for backups)
CloudAppBackup
GooglePinyinIME (I use perfect keyboard free instead)
MiGameCenterSDKService
MiuiGallery (I use quickpic instead)
SmartcardService
Tag
VpnDialogs

If you have the root, you can also delete the browser app and the launcher without any problems

If someone updates to Miui v7 will face system advertisements in miui Music and some others apps. it is quite annoying
You are save to remove it. Follow this guide: http://en.miui.com/thread-190513-1-1.html
It is safe to remove SystemAdSolution.apk file, clear cache. Reboot

Now, no more advertisement in miui music

I don't know why xiaomi try to push global users with the force to see their advertisements. May be they can earn something from that way. ?!

Analytics and MIUI SDK
You can also remove com.miui.analytics. It's also useless. The system Calculator app is also useless and has very less features. You can use another app instead. You can freeze MIUI SDK too if it has too much data. But DO NOT uninstall Miui SDK.

If you have a root browser, you can simply delete the /data/miui/app folder to get more space in internal memory. Don't worry as it has just the apks of pre-installed apps, not their data. Deleting them will not even uninstall those apps as their apks are in /data/app folder too.
