I’m a little bit disappointed in the battery life of my Fuze. At first I thought there might be something wrong with it, but then I found that it lasts much much longer if I’m listening to the radio rather than decoding my ogg files.
I’ve heard that ogg is more computationally intensive to decode than some other formats. So my question is this: is there a significant difference between power usage while playing ogg and power usage while playing mp3 (or other)?
All my music is currently encoded as ogg at quality 6 and 7. I choose ogg because it get a good quality/size ratio. But if mp3 has a better quality/power ratio, then maybe it is worth re-ripping my cds. So I’d be interested to hear about any observations and experiments related to this.
