I'm just wondering if someone can answer a simple question?
Would having the bigger screen use more data when browsing/downloading from the same site?

99% of the time, no.

It's theoretically possible that someone could put together a website that serves up photos the exact pixel-dimentions as the viewing device and, thus, a larger screen would get a larger photo.

And it's also possible that some software will decide to give you desktop sites instead of mobile sites based on the size of your device.

But I consider both of those to be pretty unlikely. In all likelihood you'll be downloading and viewing the exact same content as you would on a smaller phone, you'd just be scrolling less to see it all.

I think this boils down to behavior. With my older iPhones, I tend to use mobile sites while on the 6 Plus, I'm using desktop versions more often. The bigger screen is also more conducive to streaming videos.
