    A Factory reset just wipes the data & cache partitions, so basically, anything you've put on there. The software will still be JellyBean and anything on the SD Card will remain untouched. :)

    I'd also let the phone handle task/power management. Try uninstalling Advanced Task Killer (it actually does more harm than good) and Juice Defender, you might find battery life improves a little.

    My phone now lasts a lot longer - still 40% left last night before I went to bed - it's usually below 20%

    As above, just use the built-in power saver

    Yep, just uninstall. ATK was relevant on older versions of Android, but since 2.1, it's not been needed.

    Anything past probably android 2.3 doesn't really need a task killer as android got much better at handling it's own memory, so you don't need a task killer

    I'm not sure about Juice Defender being bad, I just don't think it's really needed.

    In saying that, it had a negative impact on my battery life, although others claim it does what it says on the tin.

    There's no harm in uninstalling, see if it makes a difference.
