Dear DJI,

Please fix DJI Go app. DJI app have problem with CPU overload since june 2015. We are waiting four months for a solution.
Most of android devices, both supported like a Nexus 7 and unsupported but powerful as nvidia shield 2 are almost unusable. Android users are over 50% of Your clients. We are not a niche.

We, Your community, developed a workaround - a downgrade of Google Play Services to an older version (for example 5.x.x.x) is resolving a problem.
Latest version of Google Play Services is causing a tablet CPU overload 30% larger than normal and this causes video lag and DJI GO app crashing.
However, not everyone can downgrade Google Play Services, because devices with Lollipop have a newer version and downgrade have no effect.

The problem is connected not only with Phantom 3, but it affecting all your current platforms.

Phantom 3

Inspire 1
http://forum.dji.com/thread-23026-1-1.html

And matrice 100 and lightbridge 2 can be also affected.
Video lag and cpu overload caused by Google Play Services are unacceptable in a proffesional use.

Alternative app - Litchi - have no video lag and there is video hardware decoding option - it is very helpfull and reduces cpu load (however DJI Go is still more stable for me).

DJI, i appeal to You - you made good product, but your app DJI GO still need this fix!

I tested with new 2.2.0 app, 1.4.10 fw and 8.1.15 google play services (latest).
FPV is fluent, cpu usage normal, problem seems to be solved.

My mission is complete. DJI GO app works perfectly. Now i can sleep ;)

Flightlog performance before 2.2.0 was really weird.  New version is wicked quick.  Although I still seem to fly in "Map Loading".  I still don't know for sure where that town is, but it seems to be everywhere.

Actually, I haven't flown since that update, has that been fixed as well?

I haven't tried flying yet, but i took some video and photos indoors and downloaded to tablet (Lenovo S8-50) via Dji Go. After downloading, Dji Go crashed and NEVER restarted! (keep crashing). I restarted after deleting the video/photo with File Manager from Dji folder

Hi Android pilots! Iam back from the airfield and after 4 batteries i must say the new app & firmware rocks (2.2.0 app, 1.4.10 fw)! Deinstallation of the google play service updates is not necessary. After half an year frustrations - now iam  really happy!!!
Thank you DJI! Tested on Samsung Galaxy TAB S8.4

Greets, Uwe

Hi, I can't still get smooth fpv video with my Galaxy TAB S 8.4 (Sm-705). DJI GO app 2.8.1 and  Firmware v1.8.80. I own an advanced version.
I tried installing Cyanogenmod too with a little improvement but still no smooth video. My controller il GL-300A

Someone can get good video with same hardware?

Thank you very much!
