Just wondering, do you think you'll save enough battery power to justify turning motion gestures off?

It'll definitely save you battery (like any other feature) but it's not enough and not worth it IMO!

Motion gestures only work on my HTC One M8 when picked up, so it looks like they are going idle after a while, when the internal motion sensors doesn't detect movement.

This should minimize the impact on battery usage IMO.

The Snapdragon 801 has a special low power sensor for just this!
