Nice post, but one thing that caught me attention: concrete numbers for power consumption of smartphone functions


A display might use 400 milliwatts.
Active cell radio might use 800 milliwatts.
Bluetooth might use 100 milliwatts.
Accelerometer is 21 milliwatts.
Gyroscope is 130 milliwatts.
GPS is 176 milliwatts.
