    You will be able to disable most of these. The ones you can't disable, you can just simply hide the app.

    If you really want to remove the apps because you can't disable them, then rooting your device is the only way.

    The apps I wrote I can't do something to and I don't want to hide it I want to get it off the phone or disable.

    Hate that I'm forced to use/have apps I don't like or just don't want have it because it's better apps out there.

    Why root? I loose warrenty for that.. And It can't be so hard to allow me or other to remove apps that's just in the way.

    That's strange, I can disable phone app and YouTube app no problem. Is the disabled button greyed out?

    Root is the only way to entirely remove the app if you don't get an option to disable. Unfortunately, there's no other way and it is how Android works.

    I can't think of any other Android devices that doesn't come with Google because Android is Google. You can try Hwawei or Apple next time as it won't have the Google stuff on.
