Data Saver feature: In India, we re still struggling to get stable high-speed internet access. In fact, most users have limited data plans, and streaming or downloading high-quality videos could quickly eat up mobile data. To solve this problem, Amazon has included a data saver mode which lets you choose the stream and download quality – best, better, good and data saver. As an estimate, one hour video would hog approximately 500MB data in best quality, whereas data saver mode will consume about 160MB data. ALSO READ: Amazon Prime Video first impressions
