    Hi, I have searched around on Google leading me to various forums but what I have found is more a case of people guessing rather than definitive answers.

    Hopefully somebody on here will be able to help please.

    1) Secphone
    2) Factory Mode
    3) MapServiceSamsung
    4) BroadcomMEMsService
    5) Factory Test


    Thanks, John :)

    Thanks for the answers, both of you.
    I have just added another to the OP, that has appeared in my running apps:

    5) Factory Test

    Any ideas on that one?

    John :)

    All the android system apps (mms.apk, email.apk, phone.apk) that samsung modify specifically for touchwiz become prefixed "sec". So SecMMS apk, SecEmail.apk, SecPhone.apk become the standard functions of the device.

    As previously mentioned, SecPhone is the phone part of the s3. It is needed to use the s3 as a phone.

    That's useful information, I now know to leave all these alone. Thanks SUroot.
    The reason I was asking about these is because I was systematically going through all the running apps, trying to find out what they do, in the hope of finding a rogue app and solving my battery drain problem. I seem to have found the answer, touch wood.

    Better battery stats is. Must-have app. Free to xda members. Worth the cost though
