    I'd like to put a battery app on my S5 to tell me what is using the battery and other important stuff (whatever that is). When I search the play store there are a BUNCH! What is the best recommended battery app and why?

    Settings/General/Battery will tell you. Go to it and start scrolling down.

    If you want "other important stuff", press the graph at the top and you'll get another screen. If the phone has been sitting not on the charger and with the screen off for a few hours, the Awake line will tell you if things are waking your phone (which uses battery) when they shouldn't be. If that's the case, Wakelock Detector will tell you which ones are waking it, how many times and for how long. (If your phone isn't rooted, read Wakelock with non-rooted KitKat.)
