Mobile Data Drains More Battery Than In Wifi NetworkChandra Prabu (Author) Published Date : Nov 20, 2018 21:52 ET
Recent research says in 2018 WIFI network saves more battery comparing to Mobile Data usage. Few years back there was not much mobile apps introduced and mobile internet usage was very low. Most of apps upgrades and app connectivity related process will be advised to WIFI network, so when users start WIFI, usually battery drains soon. In recent days, app developers did not plan to restrict more options on WIFI network with more app connectivity process. Apps just requires internet connectivity process to complete its actions, even in Mobile data. So it keeps checking Apps notification process, updates and all other process. Which makes battery drains faster and no difference in Wifi network.
