9to5Mac conducted a five-minute FaceTime call "with lots of movement" on a jailbroken iPhone 4, and in total it used 14.7 MB of data. That works out to about 3MB a minute.

And what makes the S9 even better is that Samsung's flagship comes with the best guts you can get in an Android phone right now. I can't help it, I'm a little bit in love.
