There are two types of apps running in your Android phone. One of them starts when you open them and the other opens without your knowledge. Apps that open without your opinion are those that will help other apps find your location, contacts and other important information related to you. While they are very helpful as you don’t need to retype your information and sync your contacts, they consume a lot of battery and memory which can make you feel a bit frustrated. It depends on how well they are coded. A well coded one won’t consume more battery and RAM than a poorly coded one.
A notification will pop up when the background ones start running. If you find that your phone’s battery is draining fast, or you don’t have enough storage, you can very well check for them in the Application Manager. Also the ones that are always on the go can be traced along with the battery they are consuming.

How to use third party apps
I recommend you apps like Greenify and Llama that will automatically detect apps running in background and stop them whenever you are not using it. But again, you’ll need root access to them. They also help you hibernate apps.
