    I just lost 48% of my battery in an hour. I just did a little surfing. I downloaded halo and asphalt 7 but they weren't running.

    that's the first thing I did. Current discharge rate 12.9%. I'm going to try to fully charge it and see what happens

    Yep my flash light app still runs in the background even after I close it. So I always restart my phone. Same goes after using store app(download service still running in background) so causing battery drain. Wp8 is so buggy :@

    That's crazy. Flashlight apps don't run in the background. Is it listed under the background tasks? I doubt it. And yeah, no need to re-start your phone. If you are concerned about an app, just use back button. And the apps that show up when you hold the back button down aren't running. They are just frozen in state and so you can go back to them if you want. It's a handy feature. They don't stay active like an app like WhatsApp.

    Flashlight apps DO run in the background and apps that you see when you hold the back button CAN be running... only if you allow them.
