How to Set a Data Limit on your Galaxy S8
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is without any doubt Samsung’s most ambitious phone up to now. Even if the switch to a 18.5:9 aspect display is most probably the number one aspect that captured your attention at first, there’s so much more about such a handset, starting from those luscious infinity curves and one of a kind look, all the way to a processor more powerful than ever and a camera to die for.
However, it’s just a smartphone that we are talking about and errors and small issues are not out of the question. Is your Galaxy S8 far from great when it comes to managing data and networks? I always tell you that you are the one who must make some changes.
In fact, it’s better to put a limit on how much data can be used so that this Samsung device that you own will not use more than what you specifically allow. The limit can be set to whatever you like but would make sense to be set up to be the same amount of data you pay for, or even less if you share your plan with others. When this data limit is reached, all mobile data services will be disabled until the month renews.
If you don’t want to exceed your contract data, here’s what you have to do:
How to Set a Data Limit on your Galaxy S8:
- First of all, you must head into Settings > Connections;
- Tap the button to the right of Data usage;
- Do not hesitate to confirm any prompts;
- Now, tap Data limit or Data usage limit just below it;
- Choose how much data the device is allowed to use during each billing cycle before all mobile data should be turned off;
- Then, feel free to exit the settings.
Tips: you may also change settings in your biggest data-demanding apps, such as Netflix or even YouTube. These are video streaming apps that are used on bigger screens like tablets, so tethering that to an Android phone can use data faster than you imagine. And always adjust the quality of the videos to be of a lesser-than-HD quality if you don’t want them to use too much data at once.
