If I un-select "Pause computation when screen is on" in preferences and run for a few hours. My phone will shutdown without warning.
I suspect it is because the app use up all the resources on the phone.
Can someone on this forum try it on their phone to see if it is an issue that happens on other users/phone.

BOINC version. 7.16.3
Phone Samsung Note 8 SM-N950U
Android version 9

It seems to be resolved by performing a factory reset on the smartphone.
