    Ok, so is this a bug or something? When my phone goes into battery save mode the WiFi turns off. When I go into the settings to turn it on it turns in then off by itself. What in the world is that?????

    It's your phone saving its battery... Wi-Fi uses battery and isn't a "necessary" component of a phone. Think of Battery Save mode as survival mode, it's on its last legs.

    No. WiFi can chew through battery faster than 4G. I dont think it matters which phone you have.

    Actually quite the opposite. WiFi consumes less battery coz the external WiFi modem does most of the work, whereas the 4G modem is located internally thus consumes more power from your battery while it's doing it's stuff. The only time your phone will consume battery through WiFi is when you're not actually connected and it's searching for a network. So yeah, if you're connected to a WiFi network, the battery saver shouldn't disconnect from the WiFi unless it's searching for a network.

    when battery save mode is on my phone still connects to Wifi, but I don't think "always on" feature stays active.

    I had my phone at like 70% but I wanted to try out the batter save mode... When I did that it would connect to WiFi for like 3 seconds then WiFi would turn off...


    But when the phone goes to 20% and goes to batter save mode it won't turn off the WiFi.......... Weird
