I'm currently using juice defender the free version. Is it worth the $5 to buy it? Will I notice a difference in battery life? I also used easy battery saver which gave me total control but it's kinda slow when turning data back on. What do you use and what's worth the money? Thanks any help

I think you will find varying opinions on this. Some people believe in Juice Defender and related apps as saving you battery and others say it doesn't work.

One thing many do agree on is Juice Defender on many different devices has caused people some issues and after uninstalling Juice Defender their problems went away so take it for that for what its worth.

I guess in the end YMMV... It comes down to your own preference.

I tried Juice defender (free version) and didn't find that it made my battery last longer....maybe by about an hour or so.
