1 install Android Assistant, search for it on Google play
2 check what apps are using the most Cpu time
3 decide what you need and what you can uninstall (careful).
Mind you, some apps may not appear in the list and be often using cpu time anyway.
In addition, try the app 'Greenify', it can help a lot in saving cpu time and energy, if you learn how to.use it.
Also (only for rooted devices) use Autorun manager or a similar app to select apps you want to prevent from starting at boot.

I had this same issue. Mine was overheating when i used any app and sucking up battery life like crazy. Yesterday I did a factory reset, reloaded my apps, and installed the latest firmware update (NF6). So far everything seems to be back to normal. No more overheating and no extreme battery use/drain.
