    I just received the S5 and like it very well. I have been searching for a decent list of apps and services that can be safely stopped without stopping the wrong ones. Anything considered bloatware or unneeded would be fine. I am seeing new services starting after the phone did it's updating and I know quite a bit of it is VZ and Samsung related.

    I have previously disabled all of those apps as well, with no issues. I've gone as far as disabling the live wallpapers.

    Thanks for sharing. Always good to deactivate all the VZ bloat! I use Titanium to freeze files that "read" OTA's. Don't want to lose root in case (when) VZ sends out a patch
