Good morning everyone,

I'm from France. Two years ago, I bought a Huawei Ascend Mate 7. I was very happy about this device, but I had to sell it because of a bug with the notifications not coming through (Whatsapp, Facebook..) when the screen was off. I tried all the settings possible but nothing worked. Today, I'd like to buy a Huawei Mate 9, but I wonder if this bug is still there ? I did a lot of researchs about the settings we must apply before seeing notifications coming through.. like Protect the apps, Ignore battery optimization, switch power plan to "performance" etc... But people still have troubles on many Huawei devices.. I even red an article on xda about how to get rid of Doze on Huawei devices to see the notification get fully functional..

But also red many articles saying that Huawei will roll out an update at the Autumn to definitely see notifications work directly out of the box.. Is it true ? And is the fix already implemented in Emui 5.0 on the Mate 9 ?

Thanks a lot for all your answers. I'd really like to buy this device but I won't if this bug is still there...

Have a nice day !

I believe the bug you mention is due to the "feature" in EMUI which aggressively kills apps as soon as the screen is locked. In EMUI 5.0 this has now become an opt-in service. There is a list of apps, empty by default, which are killed. So the user now has far more control over this entire process. Personally I have had zero issues receiving whatsapp's or other notifications while the phone was sleeping.

Thank you very much for your answer ! That's very interresting and I'm very happy about it !

Where is this setting exactly in Emui 5.0 ?

You have 0 problem about notifications (on data as well as wi-fi ?) but, was it 100 % functional out of the box or did you have to apply some settings first ?

I'd also like to have more feedbacks before I make my final decision ! Anyways, thanks again ! That is a wonderful news !

It's part of the battery screen, app power saving tab. Worked fine out of the box for me, didn't need to change a thing.

I bought the mate 9 couple of days back and I'm confirming the issue of whatsapp still present. You won't be able to know how many unread messages you have from the icon, unless you open the app or top slider. Bearing on mind I've formated the device but it was a useless trial.

That's a different issue from what OP was talking about. You're discussing the fact notifications are grouped together in a number, he was discussing whatapp messages not even arriving because the phone would kill the application. The first is still present (Although the Android Police podcast was saying it would probably be fixed soon by a software update), the second has been solved in EMUI 5.0.
