Is your wifi working? If your wifi was setup on the old phone and not on the new phone then all updates, etc will be via Cellular Data

Check your Data Usage page on your phone & tell us which Apps are listed (the top 5 should be enough), that will assist us in recommending ways to reduce your Data usage.
Thanks unfortunately those arent the issues. I wasnt using wifi previously, always had data roaming on with the ace and still had minimal usage. I noticed that the ace 2 has two options for usage, mobile and data. Itscurrently on mobile, i guess my best option is to switch to the other and monitor it for a day or two and compare the difference. I dont feel i should have to reduce my usage, as im doing all the same things i did for over a year with my previous phone.

It could be something running or updating in the background that you are unaware about. Sometimes a small setting change makes a big difference
