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 :(
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).
This old bloke is having the same problem with Strava on my new Nokia 7+ with 8.1 and June security updates.
Is Nokia doing anything to fix the problem. Strava Support tell me that it is a Nokia problem and that they have been on to Nokia to rectify the problem. It is disappointing that Nokia don't appear to have done anything about it yet.
Maybe I will have to return my phone, get a refund and by a Motorola.
I have the same issue since 8 update. Can Nokia please fix this one. I use strava every day and may have to get a different phone, which i dont want to do as i like the nokia 6. Thanks
Is there any indication anywhere that Nokia is aware of the problem and trying to resolve it, or do they just not care.
Some of our users reported that disabling the powersaver helped.
Go to Settings -> Apps -> All Apps -> three little dots on the top -> Show system.
Look for "com.evenwell.powersaving.g3.overlay.base.s600ww" and deactivate it. Maybe this helps for now.
In our app we have implemented a workaround for this, but i hope that Nokia will fix this issue soon!
I am using Nokia 8 Sirocco phone (TA-1005) Android 8.1.0
Strava stops recording at every ride. I loose distance and get low average speed.
All the attempts to improve the settings (battery, GPS) were unsuccessful.
