Please can someone "list" the apps that can be removed without any harm to the phone...? I'm a little worried now I've read some apps causing problems I wouldn't have imagined.... Please... 😉

the game trials, facebook, twitter can be safely removed for now. The rest might mess up the ota update in the future.
You could freeze or block permissions for anything you don't use or need.

So what app did you use to remove them instead of Titanium backup...?

And as above, will removing apps like music store, etc really interrupt the system or updates...?

Thanks again.

I have no idea if they will, but removal ifvthe wring apk will probably result in a full rom reinstall, although I'm sure someone who knows more will confirm

There is alSo a google play movies app which won't work for its intended purpose as it says your phone appears to be rooted. It won't allow rooted phones rent movies and it's Googles own app. Uninstalled

If Google offered 5p rentals then I would use it but for now I'll be "acquiring" my movies from somewhere else :P

Just had a face palm moment.

Easiest way to remove system apps is to install link2sd. That app is just so convinient, Ifyou can use it without an ext partition, anyway.
