    hi guys,

    back on the pixel3 again :D

    ...might be me but android 11 beta seems a bit keener on killing off recent running apps :/

    ...could be imaging it :D

    shame as that was what i didnt like about the sammy s9

    thanks

    its not that it is keener on killing recent apps, its th eamount of RAM you have and how much memory an app needs. I have the S20 with it's massive 12gb and it never closes anything, really nice to be able to jump back in right where I was at at all times. Pixel 3 only has 4gb RAM, so I bet that is the different. (S9 probably the same)

    You can argue 12gb is overkill, and it may be. But as Apps get more resource/memory intensive, Android phones with 4gn can struggle to keep up. As an IT guy, the rule is ALWAYS the more memory/ram, the better :)

    Android 11 is still in its preview stage. Might be better to wait until it's actually released as a finished product before jumping to any conclusions.

    seems like this new a11 'dont close apps' feature could do with some more work :D
    ....doesnt seem to be much better than my s9 :/

    ...reverting to a10 ....oddly the transfer tool wouldnt work this time from s9 :/ .....or the ol backup :/ :/

    assume 2nd was due to it being a11 backup

    ...actually the s9 does a better job with same ram imo for recent apps etc ..... crazy .... sacking off the pix3 i think ...... might look at a refurb s10 maybe as that has 6gb
