Just how bad is Verizon's bloatware? A moto X comparison

I had a chance to play with a 2 16GB Moto Xs, one for AT&T and one for Verizon. I felt that this phone perfectly highlights Verizon's intervention with Android. Both phones were new and out of the box.

User visible storage - this is the amount of storage visible to the user on a brand new device (available storage will be less). This amount is reduced by the amount of the onboard 16GB reserved for firmware.

AT&T Moto X - 10.1GB
Verizon Moto X - 8.8GB

Ram usage - in this case, it was a fresh bootup after about 5 minutes of allowing Android to cache commonly used applications. Typically, my S4 GPe uses about 750MB of its available 2GB.

AT&T Moto X - 493MB
Verizon Moto X - 1.3GB

I was shocked on both ends. The AT&T variant has so little bloatware that is told to always cache, that the phone is very slim in this regard. Apps that you download will of course raise this number over time. But just WOW on Verizon. Apparently they've placed the top running priority on all of their apps and they ALL load.

Thankfully, a majority of their apps can be disabled, but not all can. Please, for the love of God, Verizon, get the fuck out of the way of Android.
