    Default LG G Flex: Try comparing a day with Knockon...

    ...against a day without Knockon.

    I am finding that the Android System task uses much less battery. Currently thinking the capacitive drain for Knockon is such that I will only sometimes enable it. Kinda wish there was 'Yet Another Button' in the top slider row for that setting.

    Don't get me wrong I like Knockon, but if disabling it takes me thru a three day weekend without shutting down or reaching for the charger....

    I noticed that as well, when I first had this phone.. I just can't go without Knock On though, now that I have it! I wouldn't consider myself a power user, by any means, but I go 2 days between charging, a full 48 hours with about 5 hours screen on time, with Knock On enabled.. I do disable it overnight though, as that only makes sense, but I think it is a more psychosomatic deal than anything..

    If you charge every day it hardly matters, but if you are going 3-4 days it makes a HUGE difference. For the feature to work it must supply a trickle of power to the touch digitizer at all times. Disabling Knockon prevents that constant sensor drain.

    It's just nice to know what things can save juice if you're stuck without power. Since we will not be getting a dumbphone-mode button like some devices with the new 801 chip.
