    Question Android OS Data Usage More than 75%

    hi,

    I am using a MotoG Phone
    Android Version 4.4.4

    i had some software problem with headset, after factory reset, the pandora's box opened. Headset problem was solved but the earlier Google Play services and Now Android OS are eating away my Mobile Data , around 75% -80 % is used by Android OS now , and same was case with Play services couple of days back

    things i tried: Restricted background data, but that pretty muck makes a smartphone useless, auto sync OFF, backup off

    still Android OS is cruising on my Data Plan only time it takes a rest is when i OFF the mobile data.

    Please suggest what can be done, it cannot be restriced also

    Are any of the photo backup options turned on? It might be that it's trying to either backup your files or restore them.

    You could also try to go into the Application Manager, scroll to the ALL tab, find Google Play Services, and first clear cache/data there. If it doesn't work, try uninstalling updates and reboot (it will automatically re-update. But try to do this over WiFi just in case.

    Are you using YouTube, because if you are, that might be it
