    Should I allow apps like Internet Explorer, Battery Saver, Calendar etc to run in the background? Will I have any benefit? Or do they just conserve battery and hog down the performance?

    ◘ Errr... I believe 'battery saver' will take care of how much battery is used my all the apps and if your battery level reach 20%, it automatically shifts your phone into battery saving mode. So that you don't have to manually do it.
    ◘ Calendar keeps the track of your appointments and meetings and stuff like that. If you stop it from working in the background, there wont be any reminders i guess.
    ◘ IE : I have no idea, why it works in the background. I have disabled mine anyway. I use UC browser except for the default link clicking.

    I believe IE running in the background includes stuff like refreshing pinned website tiles

    I think background for calendar is for weather updates on the calendar. I keep mine off and calendar still syncs fine and I still get notifications.

    Well i have finally found out why we should allow IE to run in the background - if you are watching a video in YouTube with IE then if you lock the screen, the audio keeps on playing. This does not happen if you turn off IE to run in the background. Its useful for listening to some songs in YT while working.

    so apps that run in the background can still run when your phone goes to sleep mode/screen lock?
