Hi everybody,

I'm now exploring my new Z2, and being obsessed about battery life I am curious about the stamina mode.

So I get that on the very basic level, it simply shuts down WiFi and mobile data when the screen is off and turns them back on when the phone is active.
But what happens when I add apps to the "whitelist"? If I add gmail to get email notifications - would it keep data running? would it turn it on periodically (e.g. like Juice Defender)?

the data is running but is controlled like firewall.
lets say if u add whatsapp in the whitelist, only whatsapp can get the traffic while other apps are blocked when screen off.

I was wondering the same thing. The link someguyfromhell posted doesn't really say how it works. I'm interested in this because it seems to have a great impact on battery life and notifications arrive instantly and I'd like to use something like this with a 3rd party ROM. Is there any app out there that does exactly that?

Greenify does the exact same thing at a shorter extent I believe.
