You may have recently been curious how you can check the data usage and track it on your Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus so you can stop yourself from exceeding your carrier limits, set warning for yourself, and also enable the data limits so that users can save themselves from paying more for overage fees.
There are some device carriers that say that the data usage amount on Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus may not be accurate to the amount of data that you are actually using. So, it is important to know that this may not be the only way you can know your data usage on your Android smartphone or Galaxy S8. However, you can mostly rely on the data usage numbers, as they are accurate enough so that you do not go over you limit.
It is a very easy process to check the data usage on your Android because it is in the center of your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus. The settings menu has a good reminder for your data usage and a data limit on your mobile that will not allow you to use any data once you have reached the limit you set.
You can track and check the data usage on your device, look at what things are taking up the most data, set yourself and warning, and other things by looking at the steps below.
You can use a variety of methods in order to navigate to the settings for “data usage” on your Galaxy S8. Note that carriers have menus that are bit different from each other. Mainly, you can go to Settings, then go to Connections, and then go to Data Usage to see the information for data usage.
This will give you a good estimate of the data usage on your smartphone. The things that usually take up the most space is things such as Facebook, Play Store, YouTube, Google, Chrome, and app for video streaming such as Sling TV or Watch ESPN. You can also take a look at the bottom to see other apps that are taking up space but not as much as the ones that the top.
You can always change the level in which you use your data limit by clicking and moving the bar lower or higher. I personally have a plan that uses 10 GB but I get a warning at 5GB so I am reminded when I am close to exceeding my limit. I always use Wi-Fi whenever available to save data.
You can use the steps above in order to look at your data usage on your Galaxy S8, find rogue apps, manage data, and also to just take a look at what is happening on your phone.
