12. COLLECT APPS INSTEAD OF DOWNLOADING
I know someone that is very vulnerable of this, he finds joy in downloading even when he knows I have the updated version of some of his apps. This is indeed a perfect way to kill megabytes, don’t know whether to call it being lazy or being ignorant. Instead of wasting data downloading or updating apps..why not set up Xender/Flash Share so as to collect files and other apps over Wi-Fi. Infact, it’s faster than downloading.
13. COMPRESS PICTURES BEFORE UPLOADING
Image compression allows you to reduce the sizes of pictures using a smart photo minify tool either pre-installed or via Android mobile apps. Pictures taken on Android are usually very heavy, some are as large as 3MB, there are millions of pictures uploaded everyday on our social media pages and apps. Assuming you reduced the size of a 3MB sized picture to about 200Kb, this saves you a considerable 2.8MB amount of data when uploaded on your social media account compared to uploading 3MB, the same case as to when you download them. You can check out how to compress picture on your Android phone without using any application.
