    DO NOT REMOVE BLOAT!!!! Buy Titanium Backup or some other app and freeze it.
    If you remove it, plan on having a difficult time getting an OTA update and having to put it back. Freezing it makes it disappear and not run.
    The files are still there so the OTA will work.
    The bloat doesn't take up enough space to worry about.

    You will need to root to reeve or freeze bloat.
    Some of it you can hide with the stock app organizer.
