Hi!


What consumes more power on your iPad/iPhone — 3G or Wi-Fi? Other things being equal...


More interested in practical observations, but the theory does not interfere. :)

With enough good coverage of your city Setty 3G (always 4-5 divisions), it is preferable to use it instead of EDGE, because EDGE consumes on average 30% more than 3G (vs 300 mA 210 mA) and compare with the consumption of Wi-Fi (up to 330 mA) (data are shown for reliable reception on both networks at full load — downloading a file for example). Moreover, the smaller total power consumption is obtained due to less time using 3G network due to the higher data transfer rate. If 3G coverage is not stable, and sometimes absent altogether (the situation in Moscow at the moment), it would be better to disable the use of the 3G network, as being in the zone 2G your phone will continuously scan the extra frequency range for the presence of 3G, wasting further precious energy.

I subscribe to every word. Cut down 3G to 3Gs, the battery life almost doubled.
