    I bought the Cubot King Kong mini 2 and the phone keeps killing apps on the background even if they are set to "not optimize". I don't get any notifications from outlook, WhatsApp and Messenger when apps are closed for a while .

    Is this a built-in 'optimize' app, or are you using the phone's Settings app?

    Welcome to Android Central! This is pretty common among Chinese manufacturers, who are obsessed with killing apps in the background in a misguided attempt to extend battery life. See this: https://dontkillmyapp.com/

    Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about that if you've already tried turning off every battery optimization and "smart manager" feature. I experienced that recently with the TCL Tab 8, which doesn't let me listen to Spotify in the background.

    See if you can lock certain apps to your recent apps to prevent them from refreshing
