    In light of this article:

    Nigerians are giving up on Android, want their BlackBerry back

    Nigerians are giving up on Android, want their BlackBerry back | CrackBerry.com

    It is mentioned that BB10 features some data compression utilities and in fact uses less data compared to android (maybe even iphones?)

    Shall we run some tests and investigate?

    If found true we have yet another weapon in our arsenal.

    I believe the main advantage is that the blackberry style contracts are come with a higher data limit for the same price.

    Don't believe that BlackBerry 10 is really light on data usage.

    The only reason BB10 uses less data than Android might be the lack of native apps; but other than that, no.

    Did you guys even read what was posted in the comments? By Bla1ze himself?

    I think he knows a little more than you guys do.

    My BB10 doesn't use any less data than my friend's S3, so compression or not, it has nothing to do with Nigeria's carrier allocations of data charges. I'm a Nigerian btw.

    BlackBerry 10 does not have data compression like BlackBerry Legacy OS, that was a thing in the past unfortunately. However, we have to move on from that. Get unlimited data packages if it's available.

    Our data usage seems lighter on the S4's than Z10's. But it's early to really know for sure. I don't know why there would be a difference since the days of blackberry data compression are behind us.

    I assume that when you get a video add sent to your device, the data charge comes out of your plan. Maybe you get less adds on BB than droids?

    BB10 us just a device on the network as all others. No compression or anything different (e.g. Security() when looking at network traffic.

    BES 10 does compress and encrypt traffic but when it's done on top of an EAS TLS connection nothing but extra battery usage is achieved. (OK - only outbound connections from the LAN and nothing published).
