    A few days ago, I pulled my good old friend Passport SE from it's resting place in a drawer. I needed a local number while on a business trip overseas.

    I remembered SE's battery life wasn't great at all, and for a moment, I contemplated wiping it clean. But then I hesitated... I didn't want to bother setting the accounts again, nor going through the process of making the SE GooglePlay-compatible. So instead, I deleted tons of apps - chiefly, Android ones. Gosh!, I didn't realise I had *that* many Android apps installed!

    The result: SE's battery lasts forever :-)

    I believe it. My buddy did the same thing with his passport. I set him up with Google play so he could get more apps. Ended up breaking the phone and getting a replacement. Decided not to install any of the Google play stuff and he said his battery life went through the roof.

    My personal experience as well. It's all androids fault I'm afraid. Now will try to keep everything as native as possible. Yesterday I tested it. Emails, texting, mild youtube videos, etc... left with about 60% battery at 11pm!

    Use greenify. Don't install apps from the playstore. Use aptoide and install versions with lesser install size than the newer versions as they leave a smaller footprint. You have to manage android apps to ensure that you have the best experience even on a full blown android phone. Android is about management and you have to do it. I have tons of android apps and I don't see a reduction in power as I'm on everything.

    Unfortunately some android apps are 100% necessary for me.

    I only got console emulators and wunderlist from the playstore and my battery last all day. Social media apps make you less social
