I am using Moto E(1st gen) with Android 4.4.4 KitKat. It is unrooted.
I wish to disable some of the built-in apps, which I do not use, e.g. Motorola Assist, Motorola Migrate, Google Play Books etc., to free up internal storage and increase the smartphone speed.
Whenever I try to disable a built-in app, the following warning pops up: "If you disable a built-in app, other apps may misbehave. Your data will also be deleted."
Is it safe to ignore this warning and proceed with disabling it? Or does it really cause the problems it mentions? Also, can disabling these apps have the reverse effect of slowing the phone down, further?
I looked up questions related to this in Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange, and found these : How can I prevent unwanted pre-installed apps from automatically running on Android?, and How can I stop applications and services from running?, but they do not exactly address this issue.
