    Hello,

    If I had a Continuum capable phone and set it up with a big display, keyboard etc , could I use it like a PC but spend the same or similar amount of data as a phone ? Let's say I'm browsing some blogs, forums and news websites. Nothing like Youtube, or Spotify even. Does the data usage scale up with the bigger display?

    The one difference I see happening is that you'll be downloading full webpages instead of mobile ones which will likely take up more data. (how much though, it depends.)

    Bigger display means Edge working in desktop mode. The scale is 10:1. A desktop / notebook pc when browsing drains 10x more data than a mobile in the same sites in mobile version. Be careful.
    There not a continuum iussue, that's a universal rule people using their phones with tethering must remember

    Does it count as tethering then, what about miracast from mobile to tv to watch shows e.g. Netflix?

    I don't think so since it's still only the phone that's using data.
