+1 on this - drives me nuts on my P9... Been thru same cycle of ensuring app is protected etc. This seems to work for some apps but not for others - somewhat ironically WeChat seems to be one of the apps which seems to refuse to play nice. I have to periodically run the app to ensure I haven't missed any notifications.

My P9+ would kill android wear even with it listed as protected and drop the connection (ironically a huawei watch)

 

I ended yup going to performance mode for the battery, and it worked better for this and other apps and didn't notice a huge impact on battery life.

I have everything off: power saving, do not close apps option unchecked, app permissions to ignore optimisation, the padlock in task list and it still closes everything at random times. Contacted Huawei NZ and after a few days they confirmed this behaviour will change in future updates. Let's see, because as it is it doesn't help at all.

@CokemonZ:

 

hmmmm - thats a bugger then.

 

I got the p10 plus a week ago. It's awesome, but going to get a bit frustrated if this is a problem.

 



On my P10 I had a few apps that just didn't work properly. 

Plugshare would get slower and slower and slower.......

Next Charge refused to ever let me upload a photo to an EV charge entry. 

Both apps work perfectly on a Nexus 5x / One Plus 2 / SGS 7 / Motorola Nexus 6. 

There were other apps behaving oddly....but can't recall them at the moment.

As of today the P10 is a drawer-ware anyway. 

I went back to my SGS7.

Thanks for pushing this with them Mauricio! Let's hope the update to fix the problem comes a little earlier than the currently scheduled Nougat P9 upgrade, which sounds like it has been pushed to Q4 2017... >.<

did anyone get a solution for this issue? What I can do is to downgrade to android 7, then everything gets normal.

I am not sure about other devices but it seems they have managed for make it a lot better and more reliable o EMUI 9/Android P (on Huawei Mate 20 Pro at least).

We had this issue with one of our devices, it's resolved so let me see what we did and I'll post back.

Like the majority of Chinese Android flavours (MIUI, EMUI, ColorOS et al), Flyme devices clear memory periodically to save battery life and preventapps going rogue
o Whitelist the apps you want to run in the background by dragging down on them from the task switcher and tapping the lock icon
o There is also a background apps setting in the Meizu Security app, whitelist everything you want to run at all times in here

I believe this did resolve the issues.

White list doesn't work on Huawei mate9 with EMUI 8

 

I believe new android will follow iphone's aggressive strategy on power saving,  more and more app developers will use the same method( push notification via google server.) to wake up app in background.

 

Alternatively, rooting is an option, but will bring security issues.

Correct. It's a mix of aggressive power management to make battery life longer plus bad developer practices causing apps to misbehave with something the OS expects to do...

We had to ban Huawei from our BYOD policy because of this, we couldn't figure out a way to get the phones to stop killing Intune.  Once it killed the MDM it wouldn't get new polices etc.
