Has anyone found this game to be a battery-hog? I noticed it defaults to run in background, and am wondering if there's a need for that. How do you have it set?

Yes!  I have to charge my phone multiple times a day now that I have this game.  I haven't changed any settings, so curious how others have it running.

It uses SO much battery on my iPhone 6, but on my iPad Pro I could play for hours and barely lose 20%. I hardly ever use my phone for the game ever since I found that out.

Has anyone had any luck with "Power Saving" mode? (When outside, tap More, then Settings, then scroll down)

Lately I only pop in for a few minutes to get my daily bonuses and help w/ quarry, so folks who play more may have noticed an upgrade.

I use the "power saving" mode on my phone & tablet (both Samsungs) & it has saved my battery and I don't notice any lag in the game.  It does take longer to load going between areas, only difference I have noticed so far.
