    I just got the Moto X and have been leaving the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on all the time as I did with the S3.

    On the S3 this really consumed very little power, however it is really eating up a decent portion of the battery on the Moto X.

    Anyone have any idea if this will get better with the X or if I will actually have to turn these on and off as needed?

    Wow. I would not leave bluetooth on all the time because it does love to siphon the battery.

    Ok the Wi-Fi is actually eating the most battery. On the S3 I could leave both on all day and they would only use maybe 4%of the battery

    Anyone know a good app that will automatically toggle these off and on?

    Yeah I had that and it really messed up my S3 operation pretty bad. Went to sprint and they said get rid of it and leave the WiFi and Bluetooth active all the time. Did that and they used very little battery. Just wondering why that is so different on the X

    This worries me. I leave wifi on 100% of the time as I am connected to it almost as much.

    No, my wife and myself are getting X's in the next week or so and I'm just doing my homework them. This is the first I'm reading about wifi battery drain. I use wifi at home and at work.

    Wife probably drains your energy and bank account though.

    Maybe mine is just acting up but before I put juice defender back on my phone the wifi radio was using about 20%+ of my battery. That was very odd to me because I was use to 5% or less.

    Do you think my phone needs a reset or something?

    I leave WiFi and GPS on all the time. Yesterday I was on pace for 40 hours (5 hours screen on time) before I finally decided to juice up again. That's good enough for me.

    We'll see how it handles a day at the office.
