Battery draining fast

  • The battery in my tablet is draining crazily fast when I use Opera these last few days.
    Opera stands for over 60% of the drain when I looked aftet a few minutes of surfing, with the tablet unplugged for 15min.
    I can see the battery % go down when using Opera.

    Opera 28.0.1764
    Android 4.4.2
    Samsung tab 4 10.1

    I'll check on my phone as well.

  • V29beta should drain the battery even faster, after all Opera request localization without touching URL field (see Chrome) or any other user action.

  • What do you mean @sagrid?

  • On any device with Android 4.4.2 Opera 29 beta 1 request localization and that can be granted or denied at startup, is not the case with v28. Besides, another two things I've got on my mind: Appboy automation and WebRTC. Appboy is Opera's affair but something is not clear with WebRTC channel - it is true that since the code was moved on Git is enabled by default on Opera/Chrome (and FF if that counts) browsers? WebRTC interactive detection expose my local IP via GPRS and WiFi and native 8.8.8.8 DNS routing looks weird via Netherlands.
