I usually am within range of my Wi-Fi hotspot, and am using a Samsung Galaxy Note II. I've always wanted to know whether I'd have better battery-life if I was to turn off Wi-Fi? I have unlimited 4G lte from an old Verizon plan, so I don't have to worry about data charges.
By turning on Wi-Fi you get to turn off 4G lte, so I would think it would be a trade-off.
But the cellular connection stays on always, so wouldn't turning on Wi-Fi have a net increase in battery usage?
Also, my phone has the option to disconnect Wi-Fi when I turn it to standby, and reconnect when I turn it back on. I wonder if that makes a difference?
