    Drain under 0.1 watt idle, streaming music consumes ~10% an hour to bluetooth (screen OFF), browsing and using apps dependent on ambient light and radio technology in use (e.g. 2.5G, 3/4g, LTE, WiFi, etc)

    I've not noted a material difference in "while in use" power consumption between radio versions but there are LARGE differences (300% and in some cases more!) when idle. Several radio versions will not drop all the way to sleep on my carrier and device while idle.

    2026 occasionally gets into a mode where it refuses to drop completely to idle as well but I've not yet figured out what causes it. When it happens the only way back to normal I've found is to reboot; it's immediately obvious when it happens though as when you pull the phone out of your pocket after a while the drain level will be around 0.3 - 0.4 and the discharge curve will be notably steep even though the phone is actually idle.
