    So, years ago when I had my 6T I couldn't get anything to pick up the phone when it was transmitting hotspot in 5Ghz - 2.4Ghz yes but never 5.

    I have a Pixel 3a which is seen by my PC and Tablet when it uses the same sim and 5Ghz.

    But the 8T is just the same as the 6T was - is this just a T thing? or is it something OP don't seem to care enough to fix?

    I just wonder why each iteration seems to have this problem? Or am I just unlucky?

    it all happens due to Doze -
    Doze extends battery life by deferring app background CPU and network activity when a device is unused for long periods.

    It's not a T issue for sure. I use a OnePlus 6 and both bands works fine. Maybe somekinda software issue I guess

    Okay but the device is in use at the time I turn the hotspot on but Doze is still in operation? It's always happened no matter what i've had but I do admit I've only ever had T models.

    I've decided to return my phone for several reasons and stick with the 3a so thanks for your replies anyway gents.
