    Default Dropbox auto upload

    Just a heads up to everyone. Unless you are connected to wifi or have LTE coverage I would suggest disabling auto upload from camera on the dropbox app. After recording a friends music performance the other night I noticed the phone getting really warm in my pocket and the battery draining fast. After a couple minutes of trying to figure out what was going on I got a message that the upload was paused due to connection. The battery had gone down 20-30% in about a half hours time. I immediately went and changed the setting.

    I have dropbox auto upload with "WiFi or Data Plan" with no battery issue. You can choose "WiFi" only, by the way, in settings.

    Yeah you can set it to wifi only, and I never have any issues with it draining the battery what so ever.

    I just have it auto upload once I've connected the phone to my pc. Doing this uses my home internet instead of wasting phone resources and got me free extra space on Dropbox as well.
