    Yesterday I shot about 2 GB of videos (5 files) at an outdoor concert. My Google+ Autosynch is set to upload/synch only when I have a WiFi connection, so when I got home my phone started to upload 2 GB of data. Of course I was unaware of this.

    When I looked at the phone later it was down to 22% battery. Just a few hours before it was at 94%. So I realized I had to do something about the auto-upload. After some searching I found there is an option that says "Only synchronize when connected to a power source" (or something like that.) So I checked that and now I can be safe from large auto-uploads.

    As an added bonus, this means any crap shots you take while connected to WiFi don't get automatically backed up before you've managed to delete them. That always annoyed me...

    Erm ... excuse my asking, but it it really a surprise, that polling the internet costs batterypower? I fail to see, what is such a surprise here, but maybe I didn't understand what the posting was about. *scratching my head* so what's the fuss about what??

    That's why I always made sure I deleted the crap ones before I connected my n5 to wifi. :P

    While that is not a surprise, many probably didn't know that you could delay upload until you were on a charger.
