    Still can't believe that the S21 Ultra suffers from the delayed/no notification problem.

    While the screen is off the phone is dead to the world when it comes to instant notifications.

    Now, some apps I do get instant notifications from like Ring Alarm, Aqua Mail and a couple others.

    Apps like Gmail, eBay, PayPal, Banking ETC are stone dead until I actually unlock the phone and the screen comes on.

    Why do a select few apps get instant notifications while most apps don't ?

    Have my iPhone sitting right next to the S21 Ultra and the iPhone is bam, bam, bam instant notifications each and every time for all apps.

    WTF is wrong with Android?

    Is there any fix for this notification problem with Android/S21 Ultra?

    Battery Optimization is off for those apps? I would think this has to do with Samsung's firmware customizations: https://dontkillmyapp.com/

    @mustang7757, are you saying this also happens on your Pixel?

    That's weird, I don't think I've noticed any delayed notifications on my 3a XL. But then again, I turn off audible notifications for a lot of my apps (like Gmail). I haven't had any issues with my important audible notifications, like Google Messages, Google Chat, and the messaging app my hospital uses for secure communication.

    Yeah, with my battery compulsiveness, I don't think I've ever let it get down below 20%.

    Yea, my Tab S7 Plus suffers from this same problem. It sucks pretty bad.

    What I can't figure out is how some apps like Ring Alarm, Aqua Mail Pro ETC work just perfect while most others don't.

    I'm thinking something with Andriod but can't find much information on it

    It’s the same here. My iPhone receives all instant notifications, while my Fold3 receives it late - when receive at all.

    It seems to be an Android problem, really

    What if you put essential apps like Gmail to "never sleep" mode? Would that fix it?

    This fixed this issue with my s21 and s21 Plus All notifications coming in right as rain.

    I had the same issue and this fixed it.
    Go to settings, then apps, then press the 3 dots on the top right. Select special access, then optimise battery usage. Scroll down through optimised apps and select Gmail for non optimised. Also go to adaptive notification on the same list showing optimise battery usage. And turn off adaptive notifications.
    See if that works

    You should get a couple lottery tickets because you are real lucky. None of this has worked for me and I've been through it all for many of months on several Android devices and nothing works.

    My s21 ultra has delayed notifications as well.
    What was weird was I had an extra line through straight talk for a month my s21 ultra didn't have this delay issue and got notifications sometimes before my iPhone did..but once I put my Verizon sim back in then I had delayed notifications again.

    I, too, am having this issue. It's mostly the notifications from Google tasks. I don't seem to have the issue with notifications from anything else. If I'm not mistaken, this happened before, then corrected itself, but now it's back. I'm going to try another task app and see what happens.

    Ok, here's some info. I downloaded Microsoft todo. Put in my tasks, set times and, so far, they've all been right on time. I'll update again after tomorrow. So far though, it seems like a Google issue because all my late tasks came late on all my devices.

    That's weird because I have my S10+ sitting on my desk now next to my Windows PC. My AOD is blinking at the same time I see the Gmail notifications in Chrome on my desktop.

    Here's an update. So far, my Microsoft todo notifications are spot on. Gmail task still a few minutes behind. I'll update tonight.

    Well, now both Google tasks and Microsoft todo tasks are running about 2-3 minutes behind the set time. I can't figure it out.
