    Default Battery consuption while reading comics

    I just realized that when i read a comic the PB spends a lot of battery :s

    I talking about 5% per 36 page colored comic...

    I used to read some other comics, and have never noticed it...

    Is this regular?

    I haven't really noticed it. I read manga on pocketmanga so I am not sure if the app might be what causes your battery drain but when I read comics I don't notice a significant battery drain.

    Wierd :s

    I'm using the native "Comics" app.

    But it's sad...

    glad I'm not the only one who found this. I use comics regularly to catch up on the walking dead. thought it was my imagination that it used more batt than some games, either that or the zombies were eating my battery!

    Try ComicRack (the free version, Android sideload). I find it to be much better than Comics in both features and performance.
