        • Screen time counting the clock time

          After I open set the clock to set the alarm at night and just lock the phone, the app is counted as running. This gives a biased useage statistic because the Clock app has already clocked around 5 hours of straight useage when I wake up!

              Nokia7,安卓9系统,多任务切换时,桌面屡次停止运行。
              一开始我还以为是系统的问题,但是卸载Arrow后就没这个问题了,再次装上Arrow后又有这个问题。

                • Screen time phone

                  Screen time feature does not show how long I spend on phone calls yet it seems to be included in my total screen time. There is no 'phone' app details to view.

                  • holes in frequent apps list

                    The frequent apps list doesn't fill the screen completely. If I have a 5x4 layout it only shows 19 or 18 apps, leaving the last two spots empty. It's seems to be related to the apps that I have on the dock's lower row. When I remove an app that I use frequently from the dock, like the calculator, it appears on the list filing the hole.

                        Screen time -> Most opened, incorrect counting. Seems to count each WhatsApp message as individual opens. Example, I opened WhatsApp ONCE but counter is showing as 17 incorrectly.

                          Screen time feature shows incorrectly data in graph. App says that I spent 52 minutes but in graph i see more than 1 hour. Launcher also shows incorrectly how many times I've opened apps like Twitter.

                            • Frequently used apps

                              There seems to be a somekind of a bug in the Frequently Used Apps list. The last icon/app is almost missing from the list. I tried resetting and reinstalling the app with no effect. It appeared in my earlier phone (Huawei P10 Plus) and the current one (Honor Play). Occasionally theapp is shown, but most of the time not.

                                      • Frequently used apps accent color

                                        With the latest update, the accent color is not shown on the top bar of the Frequently used apps page. It added contrast and should be added back.
