In IntelliJ, I can go to a list of plugins and usually disable 80% of them because I don’t need them. Can you do the same within Android Studio (same IntelliJ platform)?
Also, there are some rumors in circulation that IntelliJ Idea + Android plugin is more stable than Android Studio (but it may be 6 months behind feature-wise).
It doesn't seem possible on Android studio. The bulk of the Android tools are embedded in the IDE. But I might give IntelliJ a go and see whether I can be more productive with it and, in case, I'll post here my findings.
