NFC - Does it drain battery?

    Does anyone know if NFC has a big affect on battery life? I have been leaving it on all the time for convenience because I use tap to pay sometimes.

    What percentage of the battery do you think it uses per day?

    How does it compare to WiFi drain? (I pretty much always leave WiFi on too)

    Yeah I'm interested now too. I never thought about NFC draining battery, so I've had it on all of my devices.

    I drains almost none
    Always had it on on every phone I've owned and never noticed any real battery drain from it compared to when I turned it off
    With NFC the OnePlus battery still lasts the day

    No it doesn't drain battery unless you are constantly using it

    Guestures shouldn't use too much. It won't run the CPU that hard
