As many people are now using Android phones more than before at least since Tecno Mobile is producing the cheapest Android phones, there are many tips, tricks, tweaks thats available on android devices and you only get the best if you always connect to the internet. But unlike BlackBerry phones where you can subscribe to BIS and use it to browse the internet. Android devices rely on available internet data on or wifi connection to surf the web. But because of many services and or apps that depends on data to run either foreground or background made volume of data consumption on android devices very high. I can bet my last dollar that a 50 megabytes of data wont last a day if you’re addicted or adapted to the internet. But there is workarounds or tips you can implement to be off the hook of wasting your money on data plan to browse.

1. RESTRICT BACKGROUND DATA FOR APPS
As i’d already mentioned that there are many background processes that sucks up data and the worst part is that many of these apps doesn’t really need to use data or doesn’t necessary. App will run in the background to check for updates, refresh and do all sort of unconcerned processes that will suck up all your data in a blink of eye, does that worth wasting of data over? This how to restrict apps from running in the background. Head over to settings>data usage>scroll down to select the app>click on it and mark restrict background data>press ok to
confirm your selection..

DISABLE AUTOMATIC UPDATE APPS
By default settings any apps you installed on you devices has been set to automatically update and this process will consume lotta data. You can disable this in Play settings go to playstore>tap the menu button>click on settings>unchecked auto-update apps>

3. LIMIT BACKGROUND PROCESSES
You can also limit the amount of background processes your phone can carry out, there by reduce the amount of meg. Consume when apps is running in the background. Go to settings>developer
options>scroll down under apps tab, then click
on background process limit>then select your
desired process limit.

4. OFF YOUR DATA WHEN YOU DONT USE IT
You dont need to turn on your data when you dont use it, dont leave it for the tiger apps that love to kill and eat data to do their cruel work. Always turn it off when you dont use it!

5. USE BETTER BROWSER AND CHANGE BROWSER SETTINGS TO SAVE DATA
