YouTube data usage: Tablets -vs- PC

Which consumes more data usage running YouTube content: 1) Samsung Galaxy tab 3 tablet or 2) Asus laptop computer?

It seems like my HN data usage is consumed at a faster rate on the Galaxy tab 3. Is that because the tablet tries to run YouTube at the highest dpi or HQ rate?

IF both devices are set to download the same resolution of 480p for the exact same content from YouTube, the differences should be minimal. You should do a test with both devices sitting perfectly still to get the same quality signal. Test one device, then the other. Have no other client devices operating during the tests other than the one you are testing.

BTW, how do you adjust the YouTube settings on an android tablet? It does not have a
'settings' icon

thanks for your help, david.
