    Since things are rendered at lower resolution does that make sense?

    I think the higher resolution rendering is probably a small fraction of battery usage. The vast majority is probably the screen backlight, wireless radios, and general CPU/GPU usage by apps, most of which wouldn't be changed much by zoomed mode.
