    Sounds like your app updates are eating up your data. You can change your settings in the Play Store to auto-update over wifi only to save data.

    Their seems to be an issue with the s6/s7 and Google play services right now. I've heard and read a lot of complaints about how much data Google play services is eating up with Samsung phones.

    I found I was using a great deal of data after I switched to Verizon and got the S7. I also found it was my fault. I had not set the updates to use WiFi only. That and turning off Mobile Data stopped my excessive usage.
