    Title says it all, I disabled notification and some other things, yet almost all my apps run in the background when I'm not using it.. Especially Facebook and some heavy games...

    Show us a screenshot of the Settings>Battery menu. Do the stats actually show that the apps are using an inordinately high amount of battery, even if they're only in the background? For most apps, when you switch out of them, they get paused in the background -- so they should be using very little battery, even if they're still resident in RAM.

    Before I do, cause I use Security Master to check what apps are draining, should I send that or my Android Settings Battery? Also is having an app like Security Master the issue?

    That app is from Cheetah Mobile, which I don't trust at all. If you can, I suggest uninstalling any Cheetah Mobile app from your phone. Apart from a history of shady and sneaky practices, their apps (like Clean Master) claim to improve performance by doing things that run counter to how Android is designed to work, and which can ultimately hinder performance.

    I'm aware that Samsung incorporates some of Clean Master's features in its Device Maintenance app, which makes me shake my head a little. So you might not be able to get rid of all of Cheetah's influence.

    FB is a HUGE resources hog. Cost of using it.

    You can limit background threads.
    But "running" and idling but waiting are different.

    Look for better battery monitor. Or run without. CM as stated will cause a round robin of issues.

    Some games are loaded with ad services, adware, or worse. Paid is preferable.
