    Default Side loading just to show off...

    This may or may not be 100% moral but I have a ton of apps on my Zed purely just to shut my friends up when they say "I would get it but the apps..."

    (you all know this situation well)

    Question is, I heard people were uninstalling apps (eg ebay) because they are a battery drain.

    My question is, if I have these apps (Netflix, instagram, etc) proudly on my home screen, never opened, will they still drain the battery? Logic tells me no, but I would just like some confirmation...
    Thanks all in advance

    I'm thinking no, I'm very confident they won't drain your battery as long as you don't run the apps once they're installed.

    I do the same. Some apps I have installed but don't use them. They are just there so when people ask me i show them yes I have it. Show them it works. Lol.

    Some apps do drain the battery even of not actually running as an active frame. The ebay app for example would drain the battery without physically being open.

    If you download battery guru you can accurately log your battery usage. Here has been mine for today...
