@js-choi, true that. Reducing cellular-data saves some energy. But there are still other things that can draw lots of energy too. The screen is a big factor as well. Adjusting your app for AMOLEDs came to mind now.

Imagen having an all black and white e-reader.
or having a music equalizer stop rendering while playing offline music
you could release the screen look dose making the screen being able to idle.

**"To me power saving mode and data saving are two different things."**

Opera and Chrome has this thing where you can save data by allowing data to pass throught theres servers that compresses the data beforehand. That has nothing to do with power saving. I could have 95% battery but a crapy data plan or very little data left to use. Having data saving mode dose not mean i want all my offline games on my phone beginning to optimizing the power supply.

Turning on data saving mode could be like asking for best zip compression from a server but you know it will take longer time to generate and possible extra delay.
