    Hey, is there any waz to enable the battery saver on Galaxy s7 Android 8.0 automatically?
    It should work on Android 8.0 but I can not find the settings for that :O

    I find the battery on my LG G6 is draining faster since installing Oreo 8.0. Use CCleaner to hibernate apps and use battery saver I find helps save it

    Is there any way to remove permanently the home screen pull down notification ‘Android Systems’ concerning apps running in the background, I’m using a Huawei Mate 10.

    settings> network and internet> wifi> wifi preferences> keep wifi on during sleep> Only When Plugged In
    keep in mind this will prevent the phone from fetching notifications but that's fine with me since I only care to be notified for emails and social media things when I'm already using my phone. and instead of choosing to have it never on, i choose "only when plugged in" so that the google play store will start to automatically download updates when i charge my phone

    also have battery saver turn on automatically at 15%
    turn off bluetooth
    turn off nfc when your not using it (this may not do anything, but i do it anyways)
    turn off adaptive brightness
