    Nova launcher has a feature to hide apps in the app drawer. They will still be there, but at least you won't have to look at them. That is the closest that I have ever heard of without rooting. Maybe someone else knows of a better way.

    Condor ia right - you're going to need to adjust to simply living with the system apps. Using a custom launcher will permit them to be "hidden", so like he says, you won't have to look at them when you open the app drawer.

    You can disable some, even most, of them via the apps utility in settings. That not only hides their shortcut but stops them from running in the background. You may have to remove any updates to the app if you don't see the disable button.
