It is currently an undeniable fact that Android-powered mobile phones rule the world. Frankly speaking, Android phones are sold in major parts of the world, leaving a small portion to any other operating systems to scavenge. But the common problem with Android phones is that they normally drains faster. It is unsurprising since Android-powered phones are equipped with so many applications that consumes much energy, although it may prove to be unnecessary, known as bloatware.

Getting connected to WiFi is then considered the most saving way to conserve battery energy. It is because Wifi usually provide more stable connection while transmiting less-consuming power signal. The two factors then lead to phones connected to it use much less power to go online. However, surprising to be discovered, a fact reveals that a typical smartphone is found to be draining faster when getting connected to WiFi rather than using cellular. How could that be possible?

Needless to say, it is because phones connected to WiFi that have been found to be draining faster use many data-consuming applications, while phone conserving much battery energy albeit connected to cellular data are waived from any online applications. Simply put, even 3450 mAh-powered Nexus 6P that is considered to have a massive battery to power it all day long will be drained shortly yet connected to WiFi because of heavily used applications that consumes battery energy. In contrary, phones with much smaller battery capacity will conserve much when there are no applications installed on it.
