How to remove bloatware on Galaxy S4?

You can’t find much bloatware on Google Nexus series. But this is not the case for carrier or other brand Android devices. Usually, they are loaded with several bloatwares (applications that you don’t need and use at all). Same apply to Samsung Galaxy S4. There are some applications that I do use use at all. And you can’t uninstall them using the normal way because they are system applications. But you can disable them and stop them from using your precious CPU and memory resources. Well, this method does not remove bloatware totally but have the same effect. Why? You can’t use system storage anyway even after actually removed those bloatware from system storage. Therefore, disable and remove are the same to me (unless you manage to reduce system partition and increase data partition manually).

    Root and deleting is the only way for starters, as not even 9 GB are available..

    Just an end-user saying thank you. The bloatware on my new cell (Samsung Galaxy S4, replaced after two weeks due to a Black Screen of Death issue) is so out of control, I really feel that I should be paid to use the cell. I won’t drive a car with dealer badging on it and I don’t see how this is any different, except in its being sneakier and potentially more destructive. I don’t have the skills to root my cell so your instructions above were very much appreciated.
