Alright. Works like a charm. Was able to reduce around 10% battery since last night just by managing permissions.

And here is where Symbian still excels and when and if Microsoft adds this feature in WP8.1, fanboys will scream STEALING or when they're in a more sober mood, COPYING!

Search the app store for "boogoo permission" you find a ad free app to get access to the permission manager that is hidden in android 4.3!
