    The game worked great for me for the first week or two then it began making my phone shut off when there was still a lot of charge left on it. This week it's been shutting off around 70% to 80% and the other day I manged to make it to 67%. I've turned off music/sound effects and got a battery saver app to shut the screen off but it's only helping a little bit. Sometimes it'll last 5 minutes, other times it'll last 10, 20, 30. There's no pattern. Am I the only one this is happening to or are there others? I'm running it on an HTC DNA.

    Your phone spec looks good but it doesn't matter because I have tried Pokemon on an entry level device with poor cpu/gpu and just 1GB of RAM, it lagged/freezed a lot.. a lot but the device never switched off. In fact I could play at the end of 1% too.

    Trying clearing out the cache 1st and then the data of the Pokemon app from Settings > installed app > Pokemon. And then uninstall and reinstall the app.

    Is the phone getting hot while playing? It could be shutting down due to overheating. I know this game makes my device run pretty hot at times to the point it hurts my ear to answer a call.

    Thanks! I'll try that. I was able to play until my phone got pretty low in the beginning.

    It gets hot sometimes but not all the time. I thought that might be an issue too but it's not always the case.

    Update: I broke out my portal charger and BAM no shutting off. I guess I'll just always have to carry it with me now and I can play as long as I want! It didn't actually charge my phone but it stopped it from massively draining or shutting off so I'll take it.

    I heard that Pokemon Go will be updated to accommodate with the battery usage in the new android Nougat update! Sorry if this doesn't help at all though!

    I'm actually on 4.4.2 Kitkat and plan on staying there so foxfi works. Any update after that and it's broken. Awesome for all the Nourgart users though!
