Pixel 3 and 3 XL owners complain about problems with memory management

22 October 2018

Sales of the new generation of flagship smartphones from Google have only recently started, but the network has already managed to appear a lot of reports about a variety of problems. Earlier, users of the new Pixel 3 and 3 XL complained about the gadgets' back panel, which was too prone to scratches, then there were complaints about the camera, speakers, battery and microphone. Unfortunately, the troubles didn't end there: the smartphones were prone to memory management issues.

According to user reports, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL can't run more than three apps in the background. In some cases, "minimized" apps have to be re-launched to continue working with them. A more unpleasant problem has also been reported. For some users, background apps automatically close when taking pictures with the device's camera.

It's worth adding that on the social news resource Reddit, which has also published many complaints about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, some users have suggested that the problem is due to a feature of the Android 9.0 Pie operating system. We are talking about the Adaptive Battery feature, which automatically closes rarely used applications based on user habits. Others suggest that the 4 GB of RAM that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL received is not enough for a modern flagship.
