Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-13139) Android 8.0.0 / App restarts when bringing it back from background on physical device
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2017 18:19:00 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-13139:

[~JonasV] This sounds like a Pixel C issue if the problem isn't manifesting.  The Nexus 5X
should in theory have the same problems, but there's something on the firmware that's probably
causing it to go in the background.  Given your investigation, I'm going to lower the priority
since it's clearly just the Pixel C on a Dev Firmware that hasn't been released.

Thanks for doing the legwork on this issue.  Currently my Nexus 5X is MIA, so I only have
my Pixel phone to test Android O issues on.
