I don't need poor Samsung apps such as SamsungApps, Chat-On, Blurb, S-Translate anymore. Can i simply uninstall them and make an exclusion in my Updates so as not to get them back again?

You can remove them, you just need to root your device and then download titanium backup and you will be able to clean them out completely!

1) How to root your phone? Depends on your device!

2) Stop updates? Go to apps, find samsung apps and there you have an option to specify when to update them! Choose none and you are good to go.

  • Correct. Alternatively, swap your Samsung phone for a Google Play Edition S4 (or similar), which comes with no manufacturer bloat.

You cannot remove those apps normally.

What you can do is - disable them, at least you won't be getting annoying notifications.

Open Application Manager -> All -> ChatON and click on Disable

If you really want to purge them. You have to root your device.
