Something has to be wrong

Windows Phone Source - winsource.com
Hi all,

Still in the process of learning about my first android device (pixel 2) but I am afraid at this rate I am just going to throw in the towel and go back to IOS.

I don't know why, but my data usage is THROUGH THE ROOF and I can't figure out what the heck is going on. I have every app turned off for background data, I installed a firewall allowing me to only allow certain apps access to data. This has generally helped manage my data usage for unexpected usage. I am now facing an issue with apps just sucking back the data.

I tested this using the Youtube app. Before opening the app I had used 460mb of data. I simple opened the app, clicked the first video link, made sure the resolution was at 480p and watch 1min and 30sec of that video (the total length of the video was 5min and 34s). Right at 1min 30sec I closed the app completely and checked my usage.... 17.7mb used. Please note that the video wasn't even fully buffered yet, it was maybe 3/4 of the way done buffering. At this rate I would blow through my data limit in a week. I feel like I can't even use my phone while not on wifi because every app just sucks back the data. A couple of articles with no video on my sports news app... bam 20mb. I was using a fraction of this on IOS.

If anyone knows what I may be doing wrong please help me out because if I can't figure this out in the next day or two I'm going to have to return this phone.
