    Do you think a package disabler app is necessary?

    Do you think a package disabler app does more good or more harm in battery life?

    Very few things are necessary. Some things are not necessary but are useful to achieve an end result. Don't care about what it does for the battery, didn't buy it for that.

    But what's the point in disabling things when it seems things I went and disabled show up as included packages in Gsam when I go to see what all is running in Android System when I disabled a lot of those packages? There's no wakelocks from anything disabled but when you look at the included packages in the Android System there are packages I disabled in Package Disabler Pro, so what's the point in disabling them when they are the included packages running?

    The app is a disabler, not a remover. You can't remove apps or processes that are part of the OS, or included with it. Don't care what GSAM shows, if you disable an app, and included processes it has, then it won't run. I really don't see why you're getting all heated up over it.

    Then please tell me how easy one hand is in my stock battery usage when I have it disabled?

    What's The Point In Using A Package Disabler Anymore? I Have Been Seeing Things I Disabled In PDP Show Up... But what's the point in disabling things when it seems things I went and disabled show up as included packages and included processes in Gsam when I go to see what all is running in Android System when I disabled a lot of those packages? There's no wakelocks from anything disabled but when you look at the included packages in the Android System there are packages I disabled in Package Disabler Pro, so what's the point in disabling them when they are the included packages running and included processes running? The wakelocks shown are not anything I have disabled. I'll show results tomorrow of battery usage and Gsam results and the apps I use before I charge my phone next time, so hopefully you all can help me pinpoint what is causing the wakelocks in Android System. I did a FDR on Monday due to high android system battery usage. So my phone, operating system, and battery could still be settling in. Right now I have 16h on the battery with Screen at 12% battery and Android System at 11% battery. I'm at 36%. I did restart my phone a few times and take off auto brightness app Lux and tried Velis but uninstalled it and I'm trying stock auto brightness and took PDP off a few times and downloaded it again and disabled packages so that's the reason I will wait until before I charge the phone again. I'm debating on just not using PDP for everything I disabled which includes packages and processes showing up in battery usage in GSAM and just disabling things I don't use that I can't disable in stock. since it doesn't seem to do much good because included packages and processes are showing up in GSAM under things using my battery. I had this before the FDR. Then it seems my gallery app went rogue because I was getting 31% battery usage in 8h 24m 18s the package com.samsung.cmh:CMH was the culprit in Gsam Battery Monitor Included packages were com.samsung.faceservice CMHProvider com.samsung.enhanceservice com.samsung.dcmservice com.samsung.ipservice com.samsung.storyservice My gallery kept doing weird things and all I had been doing was moving a bunch of pictures to different albums and before that editing pictures in Aviary. Now I also had disabled a few of those things causing wakelocks in PDP before the FDR. I just got this phone on June 9th as a replacement for a overheating phone. This is a brand new phone and not reconditioned. I already checked.
    Can package disabler pro be causing these wakelocks?
    Here's the apps I have downloaded. Accuweather Aviary Chrooma Keyboard Evernote Friendly Gsam Battery Monitor HP ePrint Instagrab Instasize KC Ready Layout Ovia Pregnancy Package Disabler Pro PDP Engine Snapchat WIC Shopper
    I do use Instagram and I have disabled Facebook and Messenger since they are obvious battery drainers.

    I don't use a package disabler; I don't think it is necessary. I go into the app manager and disable built-in apps that I don't use or need.

    Ive used Package Disabler Pro to disable the system updates. I want to see one of my S7 Edge phones on 6.0.

    I've also used it to disable Samsung Pay.

    The bottom four are what I disabled.

    In your experience, do you think that a package disabler is necessary?-screenshot_20170624-074703.jpg
