Recently I got my hands on a new phone, the Google Pixel 3 Xl and went for a higher variant as I am inclined towards all the famous online streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime and loves listening to songs online.
I was extremely happy with the performance of the phone till the day I realized that my phone is consuming a whopping amount of Internet data and Wi-Fi data. This is when I realized I should know how to check how much data is left in my phone and how to limit the Internet data usage.
With the never-ending playlist and almost innumerable installed apps all my Internet data used to finish in no time. While this was a personal problem, I guess most of us face the same issue since everybody has a habit of installing heavy apps and games without even knowing how much data they consume.
In order to overcome this common problem, one should:
- Know how to check how much data you have left in your phone.
- Have an app installed to keep a check on how much Internet data you are consuming and limit it accordingly.
While my struggle in searching for an effective app that can check how much data you are left with, I came across one of the apps by Systweak Software: Check Data Usage. As soon as I downloaded the app, I got to know this was the answer to my problem.
