I, in contrast, only have 4 non-stock Android apps which I have found usefull enough to install:1.
Flud - torrenting app2.
Simple Unrar - RAR/ZIP app for sometimes downloading English subtitles3.
VLC - media player app for watching movies, TV series & listening to music4.
WPS office - office app for looking at documents, mainly in .pdf
I have almost everything else disabled, even Google services, including the Play Store, because I don't need them.
Apart from a couple of funny games, from back in the day, I think most features which are needed already come bundled with the OS, be it Android or Windows, so there really is no use anymore for Google Play Store to me.
