    Yes, it is possible to disable apps on your android phone. You will be able to disable those apps which are built in only. For downloaded apps, uninstalling is the only option. You need to first tap on all apps from the home screen. There you need to go to the settings option. Then you need to tap on apps. Here you need to tap on the All tab that is present over there. Then you need to click on the application that you want to disable and then tap on disable.
