Will enabling ‘Allow More Data on 5G’ drain my device’s battery faster?

Enabling ‘Allow More Data on 5G’ may slightly increase your device’s battery usage, as it uses more cellular data when connected to the 5G network. However, this may not be noticeable in day-to-day usage, and the benefits of faster download and upload speeds may outweigh the minor increase in battery usage.
