Since the usage of android smartphones began to go on the increase in this part of the world due to cheap android phones pushed into the mobile market, one question I regularly get in forms of mails and comments on this blog is “How To Minimize the data bundle consumption rate of android phones“.
There are a whole bunch of reasons why Android devices tend to consume a lot of data, and as a result incure you more cost for your data charges than any other OS which might range from getting updates automatically over the air (OTA), remember that most free apps you make use of on your android phones run ads as a means of compensation or would I rather say the developers little way of sustaining the freebie project. So this can really help push up your data usage to your detriment.
Enough of those reasons, the reason you are on this page is to put an end to the rate at which your data is been consumed on your android phone, and that’s exactly what I’ll be explaining.
