    It kind of looks like it could be something for Device Health, maybe it's a little low and you might want to look into it? Not sure, haven't seen it before (though my phone's health is usually 95-100).

    Data Saver on Wifi... Great

    Thanks folks... Ive just unboxed my S8 yesterday and been exploring .. My contract is only 1GB, Does it affect the phone data in anyway.. such as stopping RSS/news feeds or Bixby?



    EDIT:

    Oh nice, I can actually allow any app to bypass data saver.. such as Bixby and upday, and yes... ill admit it.. I do like upday ..

    I love the phone though... really happy with it.. Hope you folks are too

    It is for mobile data. You can go into settings > connections > data usage > data saver > allow unrestricted data usage and toggle the apps you want it to effect.

    I got the text a week into my cycle but its not common for me to use that much. I was in Las Vegas on vacation and I had my photos/videos uploading to Google Photos as I took them. I have a few more days and I am at 42gb now.
