How to remove bloatware on Nexus 4?

Remove bloatware on Google Nexus 4? Seriously, is that needed? Well, it is up to personally choice to define bloatware. For me, I still don’t use some of the stock Google Android 4.2 Jelly Bean features. And some of them are loaded and running by default. It uses up a bit system resources like RAM and CPU. System apps like Currents, Earth, Google+, Local, Maps, Movie Studio and Navigation are considered bloatware to me. Therefore, it is better to disable them if you are not using them at all.
