Default Autosync ..

Hi everyone, does auto-sync drain battery ? Somewhere i read yes, some other place i read no ..

People telling yes says : It's always keeping a connection with google so draining battery..

Peple telling no says: It's when the app demand that it's sync background .. so no battery drain..

So what's the real answer to this ? Does it drain or not ?

When an app syncs, it needs to connect to the internet, so that uses battery. Also when it syncs in the background. However it is not continiuously connected, so it will not drain your battery at once.

You can change your settings to a lower frequency (e.g. sync only every hour)
