i have the s7 edge and it seems that it kills memory intensive apps like facebook its highly annoying and kills battery.

I play a game csr racing 2 with console like graphics, it will stay in memory all day where I left off and battery is fine. So weird I don't get it.

I'm not sure what the deal is with my phone and maybe a problem with the phone itself but but I love the phone as well

Definitely a nougat issue, Samsung changed something or it's an N feature but I don't have a stock N device to test that out. I may just disable the app and use the mobile site.

Well worth the $2 I think it costs for the premium version, I think you'll enjoy it.

Just downloaded this thanks for the info. But now for some reason I can't activate this as a device administrator. Won't let me enable or cancel. Had this happened to anyone on the s7e.

I have an S7. Not an Edge, though.

I've had Package Disabler Pro for months and have had zero problems. I also seem to be able to designate apps as administrators without issue.

I've had no issues in the past. Just all of a sudden I can't make any app a device admin. It's not greyed out. Just doesn't register the click. Google yields varying results.

That would be funny if turning off one of N's improvements helps battery life.

That's interesting, I've noticed a big drain with Android OS as well recently, might have to give this a try.

Was looking in to it a little further, apparently going to apps and resetting app permissions under apps can help a lot. Just did this myself will report back with any findings.
