    Auto on/off wifi

    Just trying to see what people who have had there phones for a while, prefer.

    There are apps that turn your wifi on/off automatically. Do you use one or do you just toggle it on and off when needed?

    If you use one, which one and how do you find it with the battery?

    I chose to toggle my WiFi/GPS/Bluetooth on/off manually. The reason...I don't trust an app to turn those functions off when not needed. Since battery life is an issue with the Pro (and most Android phones) anything I can do to extend the time between charges is well worth it...to me anyway. With the Pro's stock power widget for those functions, it only takes a second to turn on/off on of those functions.

    Agreed. There's really not much of a reason to use yet another app that will draw power to do something like that. How will it know exactly when you need it and when you don't anyway? Just use the stock power widget to switch it on and off. It's incredibly easy and quick. And if the stock power widget isn't to your liking, there are a ton on the market that will do the same thing.

    Same for me I have Beautiful Widgets and use their toggle widgets with one press my WIFI is on/off. My bluetooth and GPS are always off unless I need bluetooth in the truck for phone calls, again use the same toggles for those too.

    Yeah, I decided to go with the toggle on the home screen and turn it on and off as needed. Any way to save some precious battery life
