Some time ago we mentioned that one of the big problems for your battery was to close the applications and processes in the background, because doing so spent much more energy when those applications were reopened. For this reason, from Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google developed a background process management system called Doze.
Doze was evolving and in Android Pie it became a function called Adaptive Battery, which uses artificial intelligence to improve battery performance without the need to be so rough with background processes, so you get a good user experience with outstanding battery performance.
The problem is that although manufacturers can use the Android Adaptive Battery for their phones, almost all use their own technology for this process, and many times they are so aggressive with background processes that significantly affect the user experience .
For this reason, the Don’t Kill My App site points to the manufacturers that treat processes and applications in the background worse, a situation that undoubtedly affects the experience of using the device.
What are the brands that are more aggressive with apps in the background?
According to the site, the brands are as follows:
- Huawei (Except the Nexus 6P)
- Samsung (especially phones with Android Pie)
- Nokia (also phones with Android One)
- Xiaomi (except phones with Android One)
The same company recognizes that the teams with the best management of applications and processes in the background are the Pixels, followed by HTC, which seems to use Google technology for background management.
What are the “advantages” and disadvantages of aggressive management of background processes?
One of the things that manufacturers tend to be very “aggressive” with background processes is to save battery, in fact, if we think about, Huawei has one of the best autonomies in the market, but in return many applications They don’t work very well in the background.
In my case I have used several devices from Huawei, Honor and Xiaomi, and I can say that the user experience is often reduced by this aggressive process management in the background, since some applications do not register locations, sometimes notifications of YouTube they do not arrive, and the messages of Telegram and WhatsApp take longer to notify me that they have reached me.
Therefore, the “advantages” of this management actually become a disadvantage for the user experience.
The entry These are the brands that most difficult the work of your applications on Android was first published in a side.
