    Oh wow thanks! I had no clue NFC was on by default, most android phones have it turned off by default.

    FYI- modern implementations of NFC and Bluetooth use a negligible amount of battery when on but not in use. Ever since Android 4 the OS has safety mechanisms that stop them from draining your battery.

    Even having GPS radio enabled uses very little power unless some application like Google Maps actually makes use of it.

    Same issue on ALL BlackBerry phones. It is defaulted on ... But yes turn off to save battery. WiFi does the same but we all need that!

    agreed radios not in use use little to no battery anymore. Sure it helps having it off when not in use but its not going to gain you even half hour of battery life turning them all off combined

    I agree with the majority of the post here. I had my NFC on since I got the phone I don't think it is contributing negatively to my battery life.

    I just have it on, in the event that I get to try Android pay for the fist time.
