    Impact of microphone on phone's battery life?

    Hey guys,

    I was wondering what is the impact of microphone on phone's battery life? I mean how fast the battery will drain out if the microphone is turned on 24/7?

    off the back of my head as an electronic engineer, I think that the Mic itself is not your main eeker - the real drainer of power is the A/D converter, and furthermore all the CPU logic which is behind that Mic and does the polling you probably intend to do in the end.

    Why not just try it out yourself on an S60 phone?

    All the best

    And you can use Nokia Energy Profiler to monitor power consumption:
