hi everyone. I've been reading several forums and wondered about the point to use WiFi when available instead of 4G LTE.
does this mean that I should use my home secure WiFi connection INSTEAD of the 4G network to get better battery life?
how does this affect text messages and phone calls?
When to use wifi? well i use my wifi at my place because i get horrid 3g signal and voice quality. The reason is when you have bad signals you're phone uses battery to hold the signal or look for another tower which uses a lot of battery. Using wifi will only require the phone to stay on one signal so it does not use battery to look for another tower and such. And it does not Affect Phone calls nor text messages from what i seen. But if you have 4g LTE faster than you're wifi then nah don't use the wifi, it is totally up to you.
Thanks for starting this thread. I was confused as well. I had no idea calls would come over wifi. Is 4G going to be a continuous longterm battery problem? I'm wondering if the wifi use is a short-term fix? Some people have bad 3G/4G connections in their house; my problem is the opposite. My wireless is spotty.
