How to solve the problem of heavy data consumption on Android Smartphones / Tablets

very frustrated. There are a lot of

complaints about this issue, many unanswered questions so

i’ll guide you through a step-by-step guide on how to

control heavy data consumption first on your Android

smartphone / tablet (for PC users, hhj

What causes heavy data / megabyte usage
on Android phones?

Common data consumers are:
•  GPS applications and processes
•  Auto OS update
•  Google Play Store auto-updates
•  Background data
•  Too frequent syncs
•  Media streaming

How do I check my Android data consumption / data
usage so far?

In order to check your current usage, you’ll want to
monitor consumption from within Android. If your
smartphone / tablet is running Android 4.0 or above, here’s
how you can check your Android data usage:

•  Navigate to Settings.
•  Select Wireless & Networks.
•  Select Data Usage.

If your smartphone / tablet is not currently running
Android 4.0 or above, you’ll either want to Upgrade
Android OS running on your tablet / smartphone

or download
any good third-party data manager for Android. You can
visit the Play Store to download mobile apps for Android
(a good android application monitor).

How do I manage / control heavy data consumption on

It’s a rather simple process. There are a number of
you can employ. Some are:

Disable Location Access

•  Go to Settings
•  Click Location Access
•  Untick ‘Access to my location’
•  Untick ‘WIFI and mobile network location’

Disable Auto-backup

•  Go to Settings
•  Click Backup & Reset
•  Untick ‘Backup my data’

Disable Background data for selected apps

•  Go to Settings
•  Click Data Usage
•  Select the tab (at the top) for the SIM card you’re
browsing with
You’ll see a list of apps and how much megabytes they’ve
consumed over a given time frame
Select an app, scroll down then tick ‘Restrict
background data’
Do not restrict background data for instant messengers
like Whatsapp, BBM etc

Disable Auto-updates: Ensure to disable

To do this:

•  Go to Settings
•  Select Wireless & Networks
•  Select Mobile networks and disable (untick) ‘Data
enabled’ or ‘Use packet data’ (or something similar).
This will stop your Android from accessing the internet
without your permission.
Next, return to Settings.
Go to Accounts & Sync
Disable background data ( This will stop auto-updates
which drain your data [mb] plan)

Disable Unneeded apps

Leaving too many internet requiring apps open could also
drain your data. To disable unneeded apps:

•  Go to Settings.
•  Select Applications.
•  Select Manage Applications.
•  Click on the running app that you don’t really need.
‘Force Stop’ it.
Select ‘Clear Data’.

Edit Google Play Store auto-update setting

Restrict app updates to Wi-Fi only:
One of the easiest
background data hogs to strike down right out of the gate is
the background data consumed by application updates.
Updates are necessary and welcome both for security
purposes and access to new features, but there aren’t any
updates so critical that you absolutely need to get at them
before you connect to the next Wi-Fi access point. By
default, any apps set to automatically update will do so
over both mobile data and Wi-Fi. You can change this by:

•  Launching the Play Store app.
•  Pressing the menu button.
•  Selecting Settings
•  Selecting Update over Wi-Fi only.

Toggling this setting on will save you untold amounts of
mobile data usage over the life of the phone.

Switch to a Lightweight Browser

While the default browser in Android gets better with each
release, it still leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to
minimizing data usage. Fortunately there are several
alternatives that feature data compression and optimization
to help reduce usage, like Chrome Beta and Opera Mini.

Limit the use of streaming media

If you are on a limited or metered data plan then you
might want to slow down on your streaming. I personally
prefer to download any media file I feel I might want to
consume again some other day, instead of having to stream
multiple times.
