One of the biggest criticisms with the Samsung Galaxy S4 has received that it's kind of full of bloatware pre-installed apps from Samsung or your carrier that are usually troubled than their worth.
They get in the way.
They take a valuable space and you can't even uninstall these apps without rooting your phone.
Fortunately, you can shut them down
and make them disappear.
Head to Settings, More and head to the Application Manager.
Swipe over to the all pane and find your bloaty app that you wanna get rid of like maybe AT&T Navigator.
Instead of uninstalling it, what you can do is disable it.
Uncheck the notifications box then hit disable.
You can repeat this process for any other preinstalled apps that you might want to disabled to.
Now, to see if it worked, head back to your app
drawer and notice that the icons for apps you disabled are gone.
Now you before you go on a bloatware disabling rampage, a word of warning: Be sure not to disable any system processes which usually look like this.
If you do, your phone will act a little wonky.
But no worries, if you make this mistake, you can always re-enable the process or any other apps you disabled back over here.
That's all there is to it.
