Aggressive ram clearance on g5 plus

2018-05-25, 4:15 AM

apps don't stay in memory for more than2 to 3 hours. Earlier it could stay for days. Asphalt 8 was left in memory for more than one day.15+ apps could easily stay in memory. But now every morning apps are cleared from memory just 3-4 of them are left. Is this software issue and common on other phones or just my. I have Moto g5 plus 4gb variant

That is what we call "doze mode"

Android will destroy the app which is running in background for a long time and taking up lot of memory. This feature is implemented to preserve battery juice.


May be, earlier there used to have lot of free memory so, apps were not closing. It depends upon lot of factors. But, if you don't want Android to close your app, then disable battery optimisation in Settings > battery > 3 dot menu > battery optimisation.


Know more about Doze mode.
