I have always loved Nokia since my original 3310 and when I heard that HMD Global and Nokia would invest heavily in making phones again I was excited.
I got the opportunity to test Nokia 3 as soon as it was released in early 2017 and although it was slow and only a budget model, I saw that there were ambitions to make Nokia great again.
I was also exited by the 'Android One Strategy' and I saw a huge potential in that too.
Since then, my family and I have invested heavily in buying 6 different Nokia models.
Nokia 5.1 Plus
Me and my family members are using Family Locator apps but it is simply NOT POSSIBLE to use such apps on "modern" Nokia phones.
All Nokia phones simply kill such apps in the background after about 24 hours and there is no way to locate other family members and it is especially important for the kids.
All phones are updated to the latest supported Android version.
The Family Locator apps are using the recommended settings:
EXCLUDED from battery optimization, adaptive battery is off. Unrestricted data usage is on.
I have also tried to totally disable (ADB Shell) the following:
Nothing seems to help. Nothing!
I have tested the Family Locator apps in other phones like Motorola, Honor, Lenovo and it works flawlessly for weeks and month!
I was hoping this issues would be fixed in the latest month but nothing happened, absolutely nothing!
What does Nokia's chief engineer do in the days?
It breaks my heart to experience and say this but if this is not fixed any time soon I will not buy or recommend any another Nokia phone again! My patience is over!
Can someone at Nokia be kind and shed some light over this?
