Most Samsung smartphone users who have bought Galaxy Note like me or any other Android phones then what you will notice is that there are too many Samsung Apps pre-installed apps which are installed as system default apps and the worst thing is they can be uninstalled.

If your phone is rooted then you will have a different story to tell as these apps can be removed but if you are someone like me who will stick on to the firmware updates given by the company and don’t want to break warranty then you will have to or forced to have these apps. There are few who like these apps like SMemo, SVoice, Paper Artist, Mini Diary, Learning Hub, ChatON, Crayon Physics, Favorite App, SCalendar etc. and also non-Samsung apps like Talkback, but for others who don’t like this have an option to disable all of these apps. The reason why these apps cannot be removed is these are pre-installed, comes with the factory settings are installed in the root folder where as the apps which we install from Google Play store are not installed in the root folder and hence can be removed.
I’m speaking about Samsung Galaxy Note with Jelly Bean update and it should be the similar for any of the Android phones. This is how you can disable these many apps. In Android ‘Settings’ go to ‘Application Manager’. There are four columns – Downloaded, on SD Card, Running, ALL – Go to ALL and scroll through all the apps.
For example say, I want to disable Talkback app from this list. First, uninstall all the updates, then clear cache and data, followed by Force Stop. Be careful when you select Force Stop, confirm that this app or other apps are not dependent on each other. Now, tap on disable. Do the same for all the pre-installed apps. Disable option will appear only for these pre-installed system default apps and not for the apps that you have installed. I tried this, there were many useless apps and now my system is much faster, cleared some space on my device and also keeps my device’s processor free. The apps which have been disabled will appear at the end of the list and can be enabled at any time.
