Android Battery Life & Heat In Phones – Tablets

A question I am asked by Android phone users is that some devices can be fine with battery life when you first buy them but over a short amount of time rapidly deteriorates. 

There are also people who tell me that their Android phone can get very hot as well .

There is an application running in the background that is causing this , so how do we find out which application. 

Install  G-Sam Battery monitor from the Google play store which should show what programs are running and killing your battery life.

Android 4.3 offers a fix that will group all apps that need updating and then wake the phone to update then put it back to sleep when done , not just update one at a time.
