I have been digging the archives for eternity to find that
Location Services and
Auto-sync (assuming we ignored other factors such as Bluetooth etc -- because my focus is mainly about auto sync) are extremely battery hungry.
Although, i manually toggle the switches (GPS, BT etc) based on requirement. I have paid enough heed to notice the battery gain and drain caused by auto sync
I have read somewhere people claiming innocence of autosync. Basically, Their idea is that it doesn't constantly push all the data from server to my phone and vice-versa. instead,
there is a thread meant to ask the server if there's something new (and events are created based on the responses).
So, shed some light on:
auto sync really causing the depression to my battery?
2) what does auto sync
really do (perhaps a geeky explanation please) ?
3) how many minutes/hours am i actually gaining or losing while leaving it
4) what other factors claim culpability as to battery drain?
