location settings and battery drain
I am confused in regard to two settings that I have noticed affects my idle battery drain significantly , even though my phone sleeps well with them on :
1- Google Wi-Fi & mobile location
2- and under advanced Wi-Fi settings: always allow scanning
I finally , after years of struggle with Android, have managed to achieve battery lives like people claim. My problem was Immense drain during idle time. My phone can never survive the say without the need for charging. Even when I am not touching.
After putting compulsion kernel and turning these two off, underclocking my cpu to 97 mhz and 2ghz on wheatley governor, my phone is sitting at 77 % 1 day and 3 hours idling . I left all services syncing on , including gvoice and whatsapp. I dont have facebook or twitter. It has also been on LTE this entire time and GPS on.
This is not really a battery stats thread.
My question is , Idle stats are really important to me, and i dont really understand the use for the above mentioned options and the difference between the two. Are they vital for anything at all ? can i leave them off al the time without any significant location deterioration ?
Thank you all !
