Does anybody else who keeps their device on 24/7 start to encounter performance issues/unexpected behaviour after around a week of installing the build?
Not exactly the same thing, but I have noticed the following on my 950XL DS:
1) Powering the phone off and on always gets better results than a soft reset when I have issues.
2) I often (but not always) have issues crop up over time after I install a build. (I also keep my phone on 24/7)
My advice to someone who asked would be to power-cycle the phone every few days (maybe twice per week). I don't do it because, when I think of it, I am often not plugged in and a power cycle seems to cost me close to 10% off my battery.
This may not be a "bug" but if it is by design it is very annoying. When using my phone as a hot spot, when the last client disconnects (like when my laptop.... the only client.... goes to sleep) the hotspot turns off. I have to re-enable it each time I want to use it. The hotspot on my Android phone remains enabled regardless of whether there are connected clients.
After using this build for about five days while camping and using the phone as a hotspot, I think I will revise my position. The benefits of having the hotspot de-activate ...
... The function is growing on me
I use the hotspot almost exclusively when camping in our trailer. After thinking about it, it is less work to have the hotspot turn off automatically but still have to turn it back on manually. What would be even nicer would be to be able to set the hotspot to turn on when on the charger and off when off the charger. That would follow my use scenario perfectly.I am glad that you sorted this one out. I bypassed it for a very specific set of reasons, not applicable to most other people's situation. In the general context, there is good role for this feature. (Like: Why would one needlessly leave a gateway visible for a bored hacker to be tempted into? And it drains battery also.)
