Essential software for fresh android system?

HI all. I've recently installed a fresh install of windows on my PC and asked a question what essential software do people install. I was overwhwlmed with the response I got that I thought I'd ask the question for Android. I've got a HUDL 2 which I've had for nearly 2 years and also a Sony M2 that I've had for a week. I'm not impressed with the HUDL at the moment, it's some time crashing with firefox, I can't delete my videos from the SD card. The battery's not lasting too long. I did install Nova launcher almost from day one as there was Tesco bloatware. It's not rootable (I'm not entirely sure whwn the benefits are). I installed VLC player aswell from early on. AVG (free) recently but not sure I like it or need it, a few VPN's that I've tried (Three block me and I don't have any ID to prove I'm over 18 although I didn'y have the problem when I was using my MIFI both on contract and PAYG Data SIM). I've also downloaded Greenify but not spent very long with it.

I've also downloaded Optimize Master but don't like it. TVMC (Kodi) but can't get it working.

So I think I'm going to go with a fresh install. What software would you suggest? I think I'm going to start with Nova launcher unless you advise me otherwise.

Cheers

Steve

That advice can be for any question. Even more so for a United supporter!!!

OK, back to Nova launcher. Saved me time thanks.

I'm not really big on my apps, but a few I can't live without are:

Whatsapp
BBC News
HUKDeals (of course!)
Just-Eat/Hungryhouse
Shazam for music identifying
Amazon/Ebay
Reddit is fun
Banking app
ES File Explorer

I'll install some of those, but i prefer Ebay and HUD from the browser rather than the app (maybe I should try them again).

Get rid of AVG it serves no purpose other than slowing your devices down.
Nova is a must on the Hudl.
use solid explorer instead of ES file explorer it is smaller in size and comes with less unwanted bloat ware

I think I can root my phone but the Hudl 2 is not rootable (it maybe because it's got an intel processor).
