    Default does swipe use more battery?

    I am just wondering if swipe keyboard uses battery? My phone came with it already. I am running android 2.3.6

    It probably does since it has to interpret what you're trying to type instead of putting single letters up. Would it cause a noticeable drop in battery life? Doubtful. I don't think it ever shows up on my battery use meter, and never seen any threads about the issue.

    Agreed. The small amount of battery Swype is using isn't even worth fussing over compared to all the other known battery eating apps.

    For a better 'easier' keyboard that slight hit in battery is worth it.

    I am the Tegra Champ. What this means is that from time to time NVIDIA might send me new products to try out. This will not affect my thoughts, ideas, or opinions about any product that are discussed in the forums. Those are still my own.
