    Stripping Down Ubuntu Touch for HTC Desire

    With the help of this forum I managed to install ubuntu touch onto my HTC Desire. The thing is it's quite laggy (to be expected) and contains a lot of apps that I will never use (also to be expected). My theory is that if I can remove some of the apps the phone will become less laggy. How do I go about doing this?

    Unless the apps are running all the time, which I doubt, removing them is only going to free up storage space. How do you think this is going to make Ubuntu any faster?
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.

    Apps do seem to be constantly running once you have started them. There is no way to close an app on ubuntu touch that I have found. I'm also not sure if the apps are cached in the RAM while not in use.
