You can make Teamviewer optimize for speed or quality, which can save on bandwidth.  Remoting from a smartphone is not fun though.

would you see teamviewer as optimal in terms of efficient usage of bandwidth to get the job done, over other choices for smartphone? and that is true for any device other than smartphone also, right?

(yes, yes I see what you say about smartphone!)

I haven't used anything but Teamviewer on the smartphone.  Personally, I like Teamviewer as my remote desktop tool.

Here is a list of the top 7 and the writeups tell you the advantages and disadvantages with mentions of bandwidth.

Note that Teamviewer is #7 with a rating of 3 out of 10.
As you go down the page you will see the ones with the highest ratings until you get to #1 at the bottom rated 10 out of 10.

These are alternatives to Teamviewer and each one gives their websites to learn more.
