    get rid of bloatware, get a hold of a rom/theme.
    I run Tranquility and love the speed and battery life.
    I run with gps/bluetooth/wifi/etc turned off, unless I need them.

    Should I backup bloatware before I uninstall them? Exactly which programs are bloatware?

    Always make a nandroid backup before doing anything.

    And I wouldn't uninstall the apps I would freeze them through Titanium Backup paid version.

    Amazon MP3, Amazon Kindle, Blockbuster and weather/news widgets just to name a few.

    The above are considered bloatware. Anything preinstalled on your phone that you cannot uninstall without being rooted.

    You can make your phone quicker than stock without a ROM and without Overclocking, JMO.

    Freezing bloatware and changing my Home Launcher did it for me.
