I turned on my cell data the other day to do a quick web search. I searched via google “presidential election results” and then clicked on this result:
I then noticed that my remaining cell data dropped 168 mb in that single search and page view. I then immediately turned off my cell data and viewed my phone’s record of usage and it reported that 168.2 mb was used by the Chrome app.
I was appalled. Something doesn’t seem right here. That seems like way too much data being used for that. Is there something else going on? Anyway to prevent this amount of data being used so quickly in the future? My cell data was only turned on for a few minutes!
