While the phone is connected to this Wi-Fi that needs log-in, it's keeping the Wi-Fi module busy. The phone can't scan for other Wi-Fi networks. Apps might see that there's a Wi-Fi connection and try to use it, expecting to get the Internet but actually just burning power for nothing.

I have tried everything on many forums to address this wifi connection problem. My daughter finally said to me "maybe it's the browser". I downloaded Firefox, and voila! no more problems. I am very very low tech and barely know what most of these terms mean (IP,DHCP,access point?). But I DO know how to download an app and that's what did the trick. Simple. ...

You're in luck! Several years ago I was thinking about extending some aspects of WPA and wanted to test using my phone. It seemed that you need to add these as flags, so that made me dive in the Android source code, specifically wpa_supplicant. Then @schroeder posted a link to your question on a private chat room, and it instantly rang a bell. I went back ...

What you are seeing here is cellular data (mobile data) only. I am not sure what you would count as a "canonical answer", but the following three screen captures have been taken from a stock android ROM with Android 5.1.1 (as you can see by the presence of the Samsung bloatware): Data Usage (default) / with hamburger-menu / data usage, WiFi tab (click ...
