    I have noticed a few things about my RAZR, Fred.
    I use more battery on wi-five than on 4g, don't know why. Same sites, same time, over 2 days. On 4g took 5 hours 42minutes to use 20%, on wi-fi took 3 hours 31 minutes.

    Also Slacker uses less battery than Tunein Pro, haven't tried Pandora yet.

    Remember these are on my RAZR.

    4G uses far more power than WiFi. Power usage goes 4G > 3G > WiFi. If you used more on WiFi, whatever you were doing on WiFi was more battery intensive.

    Tune in is constantly downloading where slacker and Pandora download the song and doesnt download any more till the next song. When I am using tune in radio I usually kick it down to 3g and I tend to get around 4 hours of battery life and on 4g with tunein I get around 3. But it seems I can go forever on 4g with slacker and pandora
