Sony STAMINA equivalent app

Are there any good apps available which are comparable to Sony's STAMINA announced with the Experia Z/ZL? Recently switched to the Nexus 4 from a WP7 and find the battery life to be horrendous. I can manage things by disabling location services, Bluetooth, wifi, etc but a phone should not need to be managed. Android seems to be the equivalent of Windows where every developer needs to install a background process. It's a bad situation. End of rant. Just looking for a tool to improve things.
