Z6 Pro Notifications Don't Work

2019-05-24, 14:31 PM

Hi all,

I recently bought the new Z6 pro from China (I live in Germany) and I'm having major issues with my notifications not working.  I've spent lots of time looking for a solution to this, and so far it seems like many Lenovo phones have similar notificiation issues.  I love this phone in every other way, but not getting notifications reliably or at all is extremely frustrating.  I have looked through the settings dozens of times but still can't find what I'm missing.  I've tried turning on all sorts of permissions and turning off battery optimization under application management > special app access because I heard it might be a ROM issue where battery saving is prioritized over background functionality.

Right now my notifications only seem to be working for Telegram, and even then only when I have the app open and "pinned", and that's still not reliable 100% of the time (sometimes the notifications come through late or not at all until I bring the app to the foreground).  No notifications are coming through for gmail, facebook, or slack no matter what I try.

Is this likely a problem with the ZUI rom itself?  I have seen lots of people having similar issues with other Chinese phones like Huawei as well.  Is there a connection?  Would this problem be solved by 'flashing' another rom onto it or trying another launcher from the play store? Or am I only likely to get more problems that way?  I don't have much experience with customizing android OS, and I don't like to install any unnecessary software so that my phone runs as smoothly as it can with fewer bugs.

I've also read that an app like Disable Doze can solve this issue, but am hesitant to pay 5 bucks for something that might not help.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

This is a Rom based Problem. The chinese Version doesn't come with integrated play services which are used for push notifications. In globals ROMs those are always active, but for some reason they are being put to sleep in Chinese roms. Back in the days it was the same with meizu and xiaomi etc, before they released global ROMs

Sadly as far as I know there is no solution for that :/ I usually just wait until a custom ROM oder official global ROM appears

 

Kommt bestimmt irgendwann ^^

I think this would help.

Open Lenovo Security app(green icon) - > acceleration-> accelerate protection list. Try to whitelist apps that you have encounter problem with.

It looks that zui replaced recent apps with their own feature, you can't lock apps from killing and killing all apps also resulting in notification issues. :(

Hi all,

 

 

Quick question please.

 

Does the phone actually has a notification Led that lights up or blink when screen is off ?

 

If so a photo would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Hi Benjie,

 

There is no notification LED.

 

About the notifications, does anybody have news regarding this issue or perhaps a possible fix?

 

 

Best regards,

 

Kian Van Landeghem

Hello. I was having the same notifications problem. The only solution was flash a global rom, since the chinese rom blocks the Google services. But, the procedure is a little risky, as all flashing firmware process. Look here:

As for the notification led that Z6 Pro dosen't have it, you can use the "screen always on" feature. When receive a notification, the screen lights up for a few seconds and show the app icon.
