    Wifi or 4G for Battery Life?

    I am fortunate enough to have a -54dBm signal of 4G near my house. People say my calls are super clear and I'm getting 15mbps down and 32mbps up average. Now, question, for battery longevity, is it better to have WiFi or 4g?

    Thanks,

    Time will tell but in the past, Wifi saved battery life.

    Will be interesting, but going to bet that at least for now, wifi is going to use less battery than 4G, no?

    But now I'm getting some sick speed test results on 4G. Faster than my home cable.

    WiFi will always be superior in maintaining longer battery life. As long as you have a clear, constant signal.
    Common Misconception:
    Leaving your GPS on drains battery.
    Truth is: GPS is only used when you open an application that requires it. You can leave GPS toggled on at all times.

    That's what I figured. Having 32MBPS Up is just giving me butterflies My Road Runner Turbo with 2MBPS Up is so sad....

    Since my WiFi router sits about 3 ft from my droid at home, I guess I'll choose to save battery,
