It is not the number of applications installed that runs down the battery faster. It is the number of applications left open, and the amount of activity that is going on in the background.
When receiving many emails there will be increased battery usage. Leaving apps open such as the browser, maps, and etc consume more power. Having the display set to be very bright consumes more power. Leaving the WiFi turned on is another thing that consumes more power. Everything adds up.

I just upgraded to the 7.1 system from 7.0. Battrery life has decreased significantly. I went from an easy 2-3 days to one day. What programs or apps have loaded that require so much energy. I am not a big app user, so I do not need a lot of bells and whistles. Any fixes or solutions?
