Therefore when I'm using WiFi, should I turn off Mobile Data? Does that save power or does keeping Mobile Data on not drain any battery when its not being used?
Also, does the S4 automatically use WiFi when its available?
First, this is Not the Q&A section of the forum!
Secondly, No, mobile data will not consume power when turned off. You can also force 2G only to even more power saving!
