    I decided I wanted to free up some space on my S7 so I started looking at what was where...
    Using Root Explorer (after having rooted your device)
    I created a folder on SDCard named app.removed
    Then I went to /System and set it to Read/Write
    Then I went in to /system/app folder and used the Multi-select option to select many files including anything with Emotion in the name, email, Twidroid, and any of the Live Wallpapers. I then selected Move and went up two folders then in to the /SDCard and then selected the app.removed folder and pasted these files here. I freed up about 9 megs in the system (as shown at the top of the Root Explorer window, but I am not sure how much the overall system memory savings were.

    Here is a list I have removed with no ill effects at all:
    VisualizationWallpapers.odex
    VisualizationWallpapers.apk
    Twidroid.apk
    SystemTutorial.odex
    SystemTutorial.apk
    LiveWallpapersPicker.odex
    LiveWallpapersPicker.apk
    LiveWallpapers.odex
    LiveWallpapers.apk
    FileManager.odex

    EmotionMemo.odex

    EmotionCalendar.odex

    If anyone else has moved files from the /system/app folder with no ill effects, please let me know and I'll add it to the list
