Android Battery Optimizations

Instructions to fix android battery optimizations for customized versions of android

Posted by Cam on August 28, 2020

Background

Many phone manufacturers customize the android operating system on their phones. One common adjustment, is adding a battery optimizer. These battery optimizers typically monitor for background apps and shut them down. Manufacturers add battery “optimizers” in order to claim their device has better battery life. Unfortunately these changes can cause issues with long running background apps, like Truple.

App developers cannot fix the battery optimizers, however the phone user (you) typically can by adjusting settings within the Settings app. We’ve added instructions for common manufacturers below.
