    Default Does having two calendar apps on your phone use more battery?

    Just wondering about this...I believe they use the same storage file so would using two calendars use more battery? I use Pure Calendar Widget and want to use the Google Calendar instead of the Moto calendar. Problem is if I disable the Moto calendar Pure Calendar Widget doesn't see the Google Calendar.

    Default Re: Does having two calendar apps on your phone use more battery?

    When I had Samsungs, I used to have 2 calendars all the time, didn't really notice an excessive drain. Used Google to add stuff, and Samsung to look at it ( I liked the UI of the Samsung calendar). I was under the impression that the Moto X calendar was the same as Google.

    It is but I know the Google Calendar gets updates faster. I'm not suffering using the Moto calendar though...

    You could go into settings and turn off notifications on one of them. It should reduce the amount of battery use by the one you turned off to almost nil.

    dont know why it behaves like that since the calendar data is stored in "Calendar storage" (you will see this in app section) rather than "Calendar" app.

    try this. disable Moto calendar, install google calendar. Clear data/cache of pure and open it again

    You could download Gsam battery monitor and that will tell you how much battery your apps are using.
