    Hello everyone,

    I have a question for anyone who uses dropbox to automatically sync all pictures, videos, etc.
    I never enable sync due to the fear that it will drain my battery fast on note 4. Although I upload all the data to dropbox but through my computer.
    I would like to start using the Dropbox sync.
    Can anyone please tell me how it would affect my note 4 battery ?

    It depends, of course, on how much data you sync. Without knowing that it's impossible to make any guess about battery use.

    All I can say is if, for example, you sync a few photos a day and maybe a few documents, that would use little power.

    Android since v1.0. Linux since 2001

    With drop box there isnt a true continuous sync like with Gmail.
    With dropbox it will upload based on your settings of WiFi or Wifi/cellular.
    Mine for example is set to upload with WiFi only. So anytime i take pics they sit on my phone till i connect to WiFi. THen bam it starts the sync process.
    On the other side if you make changes on the desktop / cloud i noticed my phone updates those changes only when i am in the app. SO it appears to not be a continous sync but rather a forced sync when the app is running. And only for those changes made elsewhere.. Basically your phone is catching up to the changs you have made.

    It only syncs when you download anything.
