Google So, somewhere in the middle of the night (at least for me) Samsung and Google held a joint event, in which they announced both the new Nexus phone, the Galaxy Nexus, and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. While the Galaxy Nexus is a pretty impressive phone, what we got to see from Ice Cream Sandwich surely didn't drop too many jaws.

3G Watchdog has provided this feature (tracking data usage) for many years now. We first installed it on my wife's LG Eve running Android 1.5 (now running 2.2).

There are other apps that do this as well (my Xperia Pro came with one from Sony; and the Rogers My Account app shows data usage from their end of things).

That being said, the new built-in data usage tracker breaks down the usage per-app, which is a nice feature. Then you can compare how the background syncs compare to manual data usage, and see which apps are sucking up the bandwidth. ;)

MIUI (Android based) ROMs also have built-in data usage tracking and alerts.
