Sup guys, im having HUGE battery drain issues if gallery app is left open in the background, even while the phone is locked, the phone gets hot as well, im talking 10% in 5 minutes if left there.

Ive even restricted background activity completley (prolly doesnt work) in manage apps, and disabled autostart.

I got no idea whats going on.

Phone: Poco F3, 13.0.7 Stable, EU rom.

If you tap on the gallery entry does it show any more info? Some apps give a breakdown.. Also have your photo sync settings - could the gallery be doing a batch upload to cloud?

It says that all my photos/videos are synced, so nothing is being downloaded/uploaded. As soon as i open the app i feel the heat on the top part of the phone (im guessing thats where the cpu is)

Same here. Gallery App drains alot of my Battery. And i dont even have sync on. So it couldnt load up something in the background.

If you tap the gallery entry does it show any more info? Does the 'app behaviour' (settings - Apps - Manage apps - gallery - app behaviour) show any clues?

Sadly it doesnt show any clues. Only thing it shows is, that the activity was mostly on the background.

Active is down to one second cause i force closed the app to reduce the battery drain. Currently i have to do that every time or the phone heats up and the battery just drains extremely

Delete every photo or video that can be corrected/incomplete/have emojis in the name

I'm having the same problem, my battery used to survive an entire day now it barely makes it to 3 hours cause of the gallery, it will also not download photos directly to the gallery sometimes and I have to do it manually
