    You may have solved your own problem with your post(not getting all XDA on you). Do a factory reset. You may have too many apps installed. I will put Xs into what can be done if you are fully stock.



    Drain battery fully
    You can. Turn off Power Save Mode using the toggle widget in your notification drawer. If the phone shuts off at ~5% just turn it back on.

    Charge faster
    Turning the phone off while charging does in fact charge it faster. None of the hardware aside from the processor and screen are active meaning less to drain the power. Also, Airplane Mode will slightly increase the charging rate but disables all connections until Airplane Mode is turned off including calls and all data. No communications whatsoever. If you need it on while charging, use the toggle widgets to turn off all frivolities. If you disable WiFi and mobile data you can still receive calls and regular texts but not MMS.

    Security solutions are vast. Antiviruses, data wiping apps, locators, etc. There are a lot of them to choose from and some include all the above features and more. Lookout is the most popular security suite, however I prefer AVG Mobilation myself.

    Bug free is non existent. All software has bugs. A cache and dalvik clearing always helps me. Sometimes crap from apps you install, try, then immediately uninstall hangs around slowing your phone down.

    Exactly. AVG doesn't bog down your phone like lookout does. There are options that will enable the option of remotely wipe and lock. As far as top speed just stay away from installing a million apps because "Well I have more space but I have 10 pages of apps and can use this cute puppy viewer app..."
