Have Cloudfare DNS Android App activated on phone. Use on the phone https://www.dnsleaktest.com/ to see your dns. It says Cloudfare.

Create a hotspot on phone. Access the hotspot from laptop. Check the https://www.dnsleaktest.com/ from the laptop. Now the DNS reported being used is not Cloudfare's anymore. Its the ISP of the phone provider.


Easy answer the phone isn't used as proxy so your computer can use any DNS server you want.
