Extremely high data usage on Facebook etc.
Hi there guys,
did a search for some answers but came up blank on this particular issue.
I've just recently got the Galaxy S III, and it seems to be using an extremely high amount of data on some apps, mainly Facebook, Instagram, and also Dolphin Browser.
Previously with my last phones, Iphone 4 and HTC HD7, I would proably use maximum of about half my data allowance, approximately 750MB per month. However, in the week and a half since I got the phone, ive somehow managed to chew through about 3-400MB.
Checking data usage on the handset, facebook used about 22MB today from only refreshing the news feed a few times, refresh interval is set to never, and upon checking this is all foreground data.
The same story with Instagram, using about 20MB when i only opened it a few times toda, and all foreground data.
Facebook has never taken up this amount of data on my previous phones, so im looking for any ideas as to what could be causing this extremly high usage.
Grateful for any help!
