NFC Ring App and battery



  • Does the NFC Ring App cause the phone's battery to drain excessively? I have a Nexus 5 and just ordered the ring and want to know if anyone using the NFC Ring App to unlock sees an unusually high battery drain. Thanks.

    It will be no different if you already have nfc enabled on your phone. The app doesn't change when the antenna is turned on.
    I have had no noticeable change in battery life since installing and using the app. I had nfc enabled long before installing the app.

    Additional to that, it will only affect your battery life if you root the phone and set NFC enabled even with the phone in sleep mode.

    This is true, your screen is off more than it is on...it only takes a second to light it up if you need it.
