    Hi all

    I'm if disabling notifications for specific apps will improve in any way the battery life of my device like it does in iOS?

    Has any body done this before?

    Thanks

    I've never tested that out, but I'd have to guess that it won't make a difference. The act of notifying you shouldn't take much energy at all, apart from what's spent generating the notification tone or the vibration. The syncing or data refresh interval for the app probably accounts for more battery usage--so if you have an app that's constantly accessing the web to check for new data to notify you about, that could use more battery. Changing an app's data refresh rate from a very frequent interval to a much longer interval (or making it completely manual) can help to reduce battery use somewhat.

    Thanks for your answer B. Diddy.

    I know this change has a huge impact on iOS devices, and I can prove it, but for android I wasn't too sure about it. I think the only real benefit of having it off is mostly for games, I really don't want to know when candy crush has given me all 5 lives back again, it's used just to kill time on a loooong line.

    Either way I'm the guy that pushed the button, yes that guy!

    So I disabled notifications for almost all apps, except social networks, weather, IM & email.

    Cheers
