Hello Mi Fans,
Anyone who has purchased a mobile phone in the last decade has marveled at the reversal in trends when it comes to size. Long gone are the days when smaller meant better. Of course, that was before mobile web browsing was a feasible or enjoyable experience. There has been a trend toward larger screen sizes among smartphone manufacturers in recent years. Today, manufacturers are slowly but surely increasing smartphone sizes to accommodate bigger, high resolution screens.
But does the size of the screen on your smartphone have anything to do with how much data we’re using on the move? Well, study suggests, mobile device screen size is strongly and positively correlated with mobile app usage. As per report, the larger the smartphone, the more data you’re likely to consume on your device.

When people debate which smartphone to buy, the conversation quickly becomes more complex than simply iOS or Android. The operating system, while important, is only one factor among several. For many, the most important hardware characteristic of their prospective phone is screen size, with many users arguing that bigger is always better. Mobile device screen size is also associated with higher data consumption than screen resolution. Moreover, there’s a stronger link between streaming video and social networking apps and increased mobile data consumption than there is for chat apps, such as WhatsApp and WeChat, or mobile games. The market researchers recommend that operators pair large screen smartphone models with larger data tariffs to drive up data consumption.
As screen sizes get bigger, people consume considerably more data, at least when connected using a Wi-Fi network, as researches suggest. For example, data use over Wi-Fi doubles from a device with a six inches square surface area screen to a device with a nine inches square screen. On the other hand, there is only a weak correlation between screen size and data use over a mobile network connection.

There has been several reports that, same massive jump doesn't happen for those with bigger-screen phones using cellular data? There are probably several reasons. First, many of us have limited data and are cautious about how much we use. Second, our time is limited when are on the move, meaning most of the things we are looking up are quick bits of information like where a restaurant is located or your current bank account balance. What do you think?
