    Is there any difference between turning off wifi with the quick action button vs disconnecting?

    Turning off wifi means you cannot connect to any wifi broadcasts, or use wifi direct.

    Disconnecting just disconnects current broadcast, and you can connect to any other broadcast, and use wifi direct e.g. miracasting
