Strava activity crashing after 30 minutes

Hello - I'm a long time user of Strava and moved to the Nokia 6 2017 earlier this year. Ever since the 8.1 update, Strava will crash on my morning bike commute to work, at about the 30 min mark. I looked at a crash dump and can see the com.evenwell.powersaving.g3 pid looks like it is force closing the Strava process when this occurs. I've set the Strava app to not be battery optimized but this still seems to occur. So, is this a Nokia/Oreo issue or a Strava issue? Any others experiencing anything similar?

It's a Nokia issue, many people have the same problem, myself included. For some reason new update makes your phone kill running apps (for example players) after 30-40 mins of screen being inactive, but the solution is to install Wake Lock - PowerManager and put it into Partial_wake_lock, after doing so you should have no problems with your Strava crashing.

I do not think the problem is in Nokia, but Google. Although I personally do not have a problem with the running applications in the background where I have them in the list: Settings - Battery - Background Activity Manager - enable blacklist - Here I have a unmarked application that I want to run in the background. It has 12 apps and they run smoothly in the background. And I listen to music for 4 hours. But as I read on the forum I'm probably only :(

Yea, you're one of the lucky ones i guess, user1516223184033. I went though all the settings in phone, nothing helped, but user1515303135223 is welcome to try this method as well.

 I've had the same problems on Android 8.0.0 on the new Nokia 7 Plus. My brother has also had the issue on his Nokia 8 - Android 8.1. The problems seems to be with the builtin PowerSaverG3 app: com.evenwell.powersaving.g3

Hopefully Nokia do something about this app

No, you are not alone. 

I'm a developer of an app and i'm facing the same problem on my Nokia 7 plus. My app is killed after 30-40 minutes, even when it's whitlisted on the phone. Also some of our users reported the same behavior. Only on nokia phones.

Same problem on a Nokia 6.1 (TA-1043) with Android 8.1.0 (with May 2018 security patches).
