L Hobbs commented on CB-12035:

This issue seems to be related to the "Doze" mode added to Android in version 
6.0, but has gotten much worse with Android 7.0 and 8.0. Reference 
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-12325 for a way to reproduce the 
steps. I have been able to build a very, very simple project 
([https://github.com/tciwebdev/cordova-bug] ) in PhoneGap Build, which uses 
cli-6.5.0 (4.3.1 / 6.1.2 / 4.4.3), and cordova-plugin-network-information 
version 2.01. The only way I've seen to get the test app I built to report that 
the network is online is to either kill the app and relaunch it, or to disable 
data/force the phone in to airplane mode and back out while the app is running. 
 The only other option is to go into the phone settings and disable battery 
optimization for the app but that's something the user has to do on their

> I've noticed that information exposed by the plugin is not reliable. It 
> happens often that I'm connected to the internet via WiFi, and the plugin 
> says that there's no connection.
> It's not easy to reproduce it on-demand, but I reproduced it many times 
> recently. It happens most often when in the morning, I open the Cordova app 
> that was running in background throughout the night.
> Then, when I connect to Chrome Dev Tools, I can do a repl session like this:
> {code}
> > navigator.connection.type
> "none"
> > window.fetch('http://www.example.org').then(function(res) 
> > {console.log(res.status)})
> Promise {[[PromiseStatus]]: "pending", [[PromiseValue]]: undefined}
> 200
> Fetch complete: GET "http://www.example.org/";.(anonymous function)
> > navigator.connection.type
> "none"
> {code}
> So, the plugin thinks I'm offline, yet any HTTP calls done within the app 
> without checking if I'm offline or online, are successful (either from the 
> app or devtools).
> When I disable WiFi and reenable it, after a few seconds the plugin updates 
> its state and then it tells that connection type is "wifi".
> There are several possibilities here:
> - either system (or device driver) gives us incorrect information, or
> - cordova plugin is caching data and/or not listening properly to all the 
> events and/or incorrectly processing it
> and most probably the issue manifests itself when the device is asleep for 
> many hours (but I'm not sure about this).
> Note that I also noticed another issue, that sometimes the Chrome network 
> stack thinks I'm offline (when I do an HTTP call, it fails immediately and I 
> see network errors in devtools console) - and then I restart the Cordova app, 
> and everything's fine, all HTTP calls are ok - but this is unrelated to this 
> ticket, and perhaps a bug in Chrome.
> This ticket seems to be most likely a bug in the plugin, because as I said 
> before, doing HTTP call succeeds despite the plugin telling me that I'm 
> offline.
