I recently purchased the pixel 3, I've had it for less than a month. I couldn't resist the $300 off, and my OnePlus 3T was starting to show signs of it's age
One reason I switched was hoping notifications would be more reliable and on time, since I've read OnePlus severely restricts background services, and I would always get delayed notifications, even when I was using the phone!
But now with the pixel 3, if I'm away from my phone for a while, I won't get nearly any notifications, then when I go to check my phone just to see if I missed something, when I turn the screen on, immediately the notifications come in, and in one app for work, when I open the notification it tells me that the job is already gone. That's one way I know the notification was actually sent out waaaaay earlier
I've seen this before on the OnePlus, and I've read about it a lot, I think it has something to do with doze mode. On the OnePlus it was really easy to turn off doze mode(though OnePlus is so bad at this that I wonder if turning it off did anything), but that was Android Oreo and oxygen os. I can't even find a switch for doze mode in Android pie. It's not in developer settings, the closest thing I could find was adaptive battery, which is off. And I already set those important apps to have battery optimization disabled. Yet this keeps happening, as if doze mode is running on everything.
How do I turn off doze mode?? Or what can I do to get my notifications on time?? The work app I use heavily relies on that Google/firebase cloud messaging thing, and if I don't get notifications for new jobs on time, I pretty much miss out on a whole bunch of work.
Got any ideas?? Please help
