A couple of times I encountered a strange behavior regarding cellular data usage. The cellular data jumped up by 670MB by Android OS usage and all in background even Data saver was on. No apps unrestricted data access, all OFF. And I managed to take some screenshots of the data usage numbers.
It happened right away when WiFi connection had been left (on my commute). Before, on WiFi:
Magic Earth had been started, cellular had been lost for some time, ME froze, Android layer had been restarted (the system is encrypted, but no validation to decrypt had been requested, only normal unlock login had been requested) and when the eOS booted up (max up to 3 minutes), new data information had been presented – by coincidence, the screenshot shows that we had been again on WiFi:
All the data increment can be assigned to Android OS, with some little math.
All data had been downloaded in BG:
ME uses as little data as possible:
Data saver had been on all the time.
I wish to get knowledge about the
- time and amount of data downloaded, per minute basis
- specific process or app responsible for the increment in background data
Can you recommend me any app able to monitor cellular usage more granular, please?
The ME crash had been reported to Magic Earth support and may be caused by missing (not downloaded) maps and restriction to download any data via cellular connection.
