How To Close Apps In Background On Xperia XZ

If you own a Sony Xperia XZ, you may want to know how to close background apps running on your smartphone. The reason for this is because the battery is losing power and dying fast or been running slow. These extra apps running in the background of your smartphone like email, social networking and daily lifestyle apps search the Internet on a regular basis trying to update these apps, which makes your phone slow and kills the battery fast.
