  1. Before this thread closes, thank you everybody who has been a reason behind this issue being found, pin pointed and fixed, me included. So happy! I really don't have a list of usernames, just thanks everybody. I don't need other players now.
  2. Update over this, the issue doesn't occur if I don't use custom playlists. I'm happy. I hope in some way, it can be fixed.
  3. Here's an update over that... I'm impressed! I hope this playlist was the culprit, and now I'm never gonna face it again. No heating today, no battery drain, sharing two screenshots, one after the morning commute to college and the second after coming back home. I'm satisfied! Max, could this be the issue? Playlists? I'm still not totally convinced though, I'll see if this issue comes back. Thanks @Moho Miner!
  4. Another user here said he experienced this issue only when he played songs from a custom playlist that he created. Since I always use my own playlist, I'm testing this out by playing from the ALL SONGS list. Yesterday, it did seem like the issue disappeared when playing from All Songs. However, I'll test it again tomorrow during commute. You can try the same...
  5. Yeah, I tried that a long time ago. It only stopped happening for a while, the next day it reappeared.
  6. I'm writing this with great disappointment, that I think I'll have to stop using Poweramp if I want my battery to survive longer. It feels bad to carry a charger / powerbank everyday to college even after getting a brand new phone Today, battery went from 67 to 31 with less than an hour of music playback. With all due respect, I know Max, that the issue isn't reproducible on your end, but that's a very lame response. Isn't there something we can do? Would device logs help? I'm ready to provide anything. So many people have this issue, it can't be neglected. My phone gets hot as hell, even hours of playing PUBG doesn't make it so hot. When this happens, I kill Poweramp, and the device is back to normal. I'm frustrated and sad while writing this. And I'll be very unhappy using another music player, because Poweramp's audio engine is unmatched! I am gonna try using Poweramp V2 and test this with it, just because I want to. I hope I find that apk. Peace.
  7. In a bid to find a solution for myself, I, at last, removed the beta version of Google Play Services, thinking that's the last one that can cause problems and installed the public version and tested the battery consumption again. Surprisingly, it shows happy results. Will test this again during commute tomorrow morning and post it. For now, here are the results.
  8. 🙁🙁🙁🥺 it's sad that this isn't reproducible on your end while so many users are facing it. Can a device log help you understand what is causing it for us?
  9. I'm back here to report that the Chromecast trick worked for that day only. The power consumption is still high, just like before. 😣
  10. Cool. I always kept autoscanning off knowing it would drain battery unnecessarily. I just manual scan whenever I add new tracks. @andrewevenstar
  11. Hey max, thanks for your explanation but Alex from your support team fixed my problem. So happy about it, give him a cookie! I had sent this same problem via the app's support option. Alex replied within a few hours. And after tests since yesterday, I think the issue is gone. @andrewevenstar try it for yourself too. The Chromecast button was the culprit, I suspect that means actually Google Play Services was the culprit. Thanks a ton!
  12. Battery usage is higher than any other music player, more than twice. I never looked into this on my old phone. But losing 25-30% of battery with 1.5 hours of background playback while commuting from home to college every morning was too much to not notice on a brand new Galaxy S10. To do my test, I played music for some time on Phonograph and the battery graph shows clearly that Poweramp uses more power. This is sad. If I have to save power and save myself from carrying a charger everyday, I'll have to give up on Poweramp. I hope there's a solution to this. I don't use visualization, most of the playback was in the background with screen off. And forgot to mention, when this happens, phone gets warm. Also, auto scanning is off. I've sent a message from within Poweramp for this same issue, I think that one will have all logs every other debugging details with it. Build details and battery graph in screenshot. I am using this on a Galaxy S10 Exynos. With Bluetooth headset. I've been using only Bluetooth headset since 2013. Do ask for any other details if needed. I understand some people might say, that the test wasn't long enough. I'll do one now for as long as I can and add another screenshot later.
  13. Noticed this morning that the 819 build stops responding to Bluetooth headset buttons after a song has been paused for 5-7 minutes. This used to happen on a very early release of V3 beta. Didn't face it on build 818 and below though.
