Is it better to use a phone app or to tether?

I've lost my home broadband temporarily and have to use only what I can get on my cell phone, which can be variable depending on conditions. Need some help figuring out how to make best use of what data capacity that I have.

I need to do some Zoom calls/meetings for work. Does it use less bandwidth to Zoom directly on the phone (using the phone app) rather than tether the phone to the laptop and Zoom using the computer? Is less data being transferred for the phone Zoom because the image is smaller? Or does the same amount of data come through no matter what and both devices just size it to their specifications?

Bonus points if you don't judge me for not understanding the internet. It's a series of tubes, right? :)
