    There’s a tickbox in the Pokemon Go Settings menu called Battery Saver. Does anyone know what this does? There must be some downside to having the battery saver setting turned on (like less connections back to the server or something?), otherwise why wouldn’t it be on by default?

    Ok, so a bit more research, I found out what the Battery Saver tickbox does in Pokemon Go (something that @scoobnz had told me about a month ago but I forgot!). It turns on the Pokemon Go screensaver when you turn the phone upside down.

    I also found out why it’s not on by default: It’s buggy. The screensaver causes Pokemon Go to crash (application hang), which wasn’t a problem since it was still detecting Pokemon and clocking up kilometres on my eggs. I would simply have to restart Pokemon Go when I came across a Pokemon I wanted to catch.

    The problem came when I hatched an egg while the app was frozen. I lost all the kilometres I’d clocked up in the egg and didn’t get the hatched Pokemon 🙁

    I’ve since been using the application with the Battery Saver turned off. At least that way I won’t have any issues.

    Is this on iOS? An update this morning advises that this issue has been resolved on iOS, and it’s been re-enabled.

    I had the issue on Android with the latest update of Pokemon Go.

    Correction: I was using version 0.31.0. I see today that there’s another update. Perhaps this will fix it?
