Humor: How apps are really draining the battery in your smartphone, and what you can do about it
Yes, battery problems have been known to exist, but it is actually a software issue. We heard about battery concerns on the Nexus 5 that turned out to be not the battery, but apps on the phone.
What is really going on though? Are the apps having a big old party to gobble up the gigabytes and bleed the battery dry? It may very well be. Of course, a cursory examination will not yield any results, but it is possible you don’t really want to know.
The reality, may be far darker than we ever expected. It could be a giant conga java dance of apps just taking a turn as it passes the battery at the bar. Attempts to police the action have no effect either.
What else can you do but reset your device and start clean?.
