    Default Moto X: Battery life question?

    I travel every week spend a lot of time on a plane, just curious if it would be less taxing on the battery to turn the phone off or put it in airplane mode. I would think turning the phone on and off several times everyday would consume more power.
    Just curious

    I would just place it in airplane mode. I'm not sure how much juice is used on the power down cycle but boot up I know taxes the battery getting everything up and running.

    Guess it depends on how long your flight is.

    Generally they are anywhere from an hour to three hours. If it is a West coast flight I turn it off as they are from 4 to 5 1/2 hours

    That's an interesting question....but the last time I ran a battery test on my N5, it drained 1% in 8 hours on WiFi and cell network. So I assume on a 5 hour flight with air plane mode its not gonna drain anything I mean 1-2% is acceptable and not enough to even bother switching phone OFF

    Yup, gotta go along with that thinking. I have my X in a charging stand tethered and streaming videos of an evening. When I go to bed, I turn off the tether (widget) and the wifi comes back on automatically. By morning the battery is showing 10+ hours and 99%. If I were the OP, I would hit airplane and forget it for all flights, well, maybe not to New Zealand or something.

    Perfect candidate for a feature phone instead of a smartphone.
