OnePlus 3: Manually “fixing” RAM issue

We shared with you yesterday the answer of Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus, regarding the RAM of the One Plus 3. Indeed, many people complained that the latest flagship closes applications rather quickly and only runs 4-5 in the background. He said that it is normal, that it is the choice of the company to save the battery of the smartphone.

It’s a tricky choice when you know that the OnePlus 3 has 6GB of RAM and can then leave a lot of apps open. The co-founder defended himself by explaining that third-party ROMs can override this limitation, but if you don’t need third-party ROMs, you can already do that directly on the original ROM, so here’s how to do it.

To do this you will need to modify the build.prop of the smartphone. build.prop is the ID card of the device. It has some system information and some settings. For OnePlus 3, there is a line showing the limitation of apps running in the background, then it is necessary to change this line. For these few methods, you can use apps or directly from file explorer if you are root.

After finding the line ro . system . fw . bg_apps_limit = 20, change 20 to 42, after saving the change and then restarting your smartphone. And now you’ve nearly doubled the number of apps that can stay open.

With this change you will be able to run a lot more apps in the background, but keep in mind that this may affect your battery life because if OnePlus has chosen this limitation it is to save the latter. At the moment the results are encouraging, as you saw yesterday and no one has reported a big drop in autonomy.
