HTC 10: How To Close And Turn OFF Background Apps

If you have a HTC 10 that is running slow and the battery is dying fast, this could be happening because of all the extra apps open and running in the background. In the background, apps like your email, social networking and daily lifestyle apps search the Internet on a regular basis trying to update these apps. All these applications searching the web for new emails, and updates use a lot of bandwidth and battery life; slowing down the smartphone.
