I am seeing that Cell Standby accounts for 40% of my battery usage - with GPS, Wi-Fi, and Mobile Data all turned off.
Under network mode i have 4 choices ...
- GSM/HPSA/LTE auto connect
- GSM/HPSA auto connect
- GSM only
- HPSA only
What is the difference if i do not choose an auto connect option? I am guessing that auto connect simply means that the phone will choose the best option, so auto connect is not necessary when there is just one choice.
I do not need the extra hi speed of LTE. Rogers coverage in Canada is slightly better with GSM/EDGE than with HPSA. So i am considering setting my phone to GSM only.
Here is the coverage map. If you uncheck all 4 then check them one at a time you can compare ...

Will i save battery usage with this choice? What do ya think?
