    If you are using paid Internet and want to save data then, there is good news for you.
    Go to
    Setting -> Data Usage -> press menu and then check mark on Restrict background
    It is very useful.
    Helped me Save lots of data.

    Disadvantage ->
    - Notification from Apps like WhatsApp,Twitter, Facebook, Quora etc are not allowed until you disable it.
    - play store requires background data

    Advantage ->
    - save lots of data
    - enabling and disabling this function is very fast
    - helpful when you are browsing (not downloading)

    Well, I also wanted to tell about this feature.

    Once I have stopped receiving whatsapp's notifcation while whatsapp is minimized & then I find out the cause of this. It was background data restriction settings.

    Sometimes, It is very helpful when you don't want to get disturbed :D

    Awsum option I use it very frequently helps a lot while downloading, these background apps eat up good amount of network
    I also use advance task killer to stop background apps

    I have been using this for a very long time. it's very useful when you don't have enough data.
