Humor: How apps are really draining the battery in your smartphone, and what you can do about it
Even if we don’t get around to investigating it regularly, very often, we will look at the battery performance on our smartphone and wonder how it can be improved. When batteries die quickly however, it is usually the fault of an app that is installed on the phone, running in the background.

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?.
