Android battery consumption rates


#1

I’m having some issues with battery consumption on Android. The problem isn’t with the drain on battery while in use, but rather with the background consumption: battery drains much faster (though cpu use drops from 25% to about 5%) when opened in the background (vs app closed altogether, not vs active). What’s worse, when the lock screen gets engaged it leaves the app sucking battery at full speed. The suspend function never gets called from what I can see. Any ideas?

Are you doing Audio processing?

Yes I am. I thought that might be the problem from something I’d seen elsewhere. Does the suspend function not get called with audio apps? If so can that be rectified?
