Battery Phone Problem

So, just today my phone has been wasting battery, even when I'm not using it. It's getting very annoying. I removed a few apps that might've caused it. I even restarted my phone. I'm not exactly sure what to do now. So, any suggestions? It's a Samsung FYI.

Try Advanced Task Killer. You can set it to kill specific apps at specific intervals to keep your battery usage down.

Ehhhhh...I don't agree :P

Basically think about this...
What takes more power, keeping some data in RAM, or reinitializing apps every time you open them?

That said...it could be useful for apps that should NOT continue running when you don't use them. *cough* Facebook *cough* learn to Google cloud messaging Facebook devs *cough*

Also ditching the Facebook app for the mobile site is faster and saves memory and battery.

ATK has helped me a lot tho, forreals.

Um, just a quick reminder, I don't use my browser on my phone. So, I can't upload photos from there unfortunately. And I'm using a iPod right now. But, maybe if i get the chance, i'll try to take pictures of those screenshots on this device. Probably tomorrow?

Honestly, I dislike this iPod . I mainly use my iPod for music(and CGR). I have a Android tablet and phone(currently listening to music on tablet).

Anyway, still though, my phone has never waste battery like every minute(even when it's off). It concerns me because like, what happens if I bring my phone with me, then two hours later, it's wasted like half of the battery, and I didn't even use it. So, that's just my main problem.
