    Battery Saving - Wifi or 3G/GSM/SIM

    Hi, I just bought my Galaxy Tab 10.1 Can I check if battery life is the longest if I turn off both Wifi and 3G when not using it? Also, between turning on Wifi and turning on 3G, which is supposed to drain the battery faster? Thanks!

    3G would likely use up more battery - you can download Battery info or badass battery to monitor battery life -

    3g is usually a bigger drain than Wi-Fi and if your reception is weak the difference is more dramatic.
    I've got a Wi-Fi only and never turn Wi-Fi off and on days I don't use it I see about a 3%-5% battery difference. That includes a few auto syncs with Gmail per day.
