    Hi All - I know there has been many discussions regarding battery drain and all possible fixes etc. but my questions is regarding apps: has anybody discovered any apps that drain the battery more than others? Don't mean games. Apps like Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, Email, weather apps etc. Would love to hear peoples thoughts. I'm only running 2 widgets; 'weather 14 days' and 'Transparent weather clock' as find these two better than the Pre-installed clock/weather widget.

    Not really an app, but I had to disable the User Dictionary service in Android Core Apps on my S6 because battery life was down to less than 12 hours with it running.

    Facebook drains your battery very fast when using this app.

    Facebook and Instagram are bad on batteries with Facebook being the worst.

    I think all apps and games consumed a lot of batteries.

    My top 3: Google Play, Facebook, Instagram.
    I don't use FB much, perhaps once a day.
    Instagram, rarely.
    Google play uses the most battery. The only game I have installed is Clash of Clans.

    Especially the Apps which shows how much battery you have left. Never download these.

    I think flashlight app is bitter enemy of your battery
    But all in all beware all widgets which uses wi-fi/3g/4g/internet connection.
