AI generated summary: The author is testing AdGuard Premium on their phone with a strict NextDNS profile and has disabled uBlock Origin, and in half an hour of use, it blocked over 500 ads or trackers and saved 17 MB of traffic.

Since I found a cheap lifetime license for AdGuard Premium, I’ll try it on my phone for a while. I’ve also configured it with my strict NextDNS profile. But now my phone not only filters DNS requests to block ads, but also HTTP requests. And while uBlock Origin works pretty well in Firefox on Android, I decided to disable it while using AdGuard to see how the performance compares.

The stats are at least impressive. In half an hour of use today, it tells me that it blocked more than 500 ads or trackers and saved me about 17 MB of traffic.
