    Every site says that dynamic wallpapers uses more battery. I find it hard to believe that this would cause a significant drain. I am going to try using a dynamic wallpaper and see what happens. Has anyone here noticed any measurable battery drain when using dynamic wallpapers?

    Yes but it is very, very small.

    If the phone is doing more "work" then it needs to use more battery. The difference is probably negligible though.

    I keep it off because I don't see the point of it (I understand it others may like the effect however). But trying it on and off I saw no noticeable difference in battery.
