do you leave your lights and TV on 24/7? do you run the water in your shower 24/7? no. you turn them on as needed to conserve resources. same principle.
Those are silly examples. I don't pay to keep my phone's services working like I would for electricity. It's not at all
the same principle.
Going though all of the toggles and settings every time I need something, and not being notified promptly of things I want is just utterly and completely unnecessary - FOR ME. If you are fine with toggling things all day - just so you can do the same things I do all day without all the fussing , than I guess it works for you.
All I am saying is that for the folks who cannot be by chargers and need really long battery life, the settings and toggles you mention can certainly help. For others - like me - these are completely unnecessary and would result in a phone experience I don't want with a smartphone.
