Not again! Something bad for the Pixel 3 users. Over the past few days as more consumers have gotten their hands on the new Pixel 3 devices, a nasty issue has cropped up. It seems there are serious memory management issues.
Over the past several days, hundreds of Pixel 3 users have reported some strange behavior with their devices. A huge number of users are noting some memory management issues which results in background apps being killed, camera issues, and more.
There are many examples of this, with one of the most prevalent being music apps such as Spotify being stopped mid-playback when taking a picture with the camera.
Further examples of what is going on include apps reloading far more than usual. Some users have noted that apps on the Pixel 3 seem to require being reloaded much more quickly, with the phone sometimes even struggling to keep 2-3 apps in memory at a time.
Another example with seemingly the same underlying cause is a camera bug which can cause images not to save or parts of a video to disappear.
Most likely, Google can fix a lot of these problems in an update to make the memory management less aggressive.
