    Resolution Note:

    Seems that Huawei (including Honor) and Xiaomi utilize aggresive battery saving techniques which restrict app background activities unless the app has been whitelisted by the user in device settings. This means that any scheduled notifications will not be delivered if the app is closed or not running in the background. We are not aware of any way to workaround this behaviour besides encouraging the user to whitelist their app.

    I have one of these phones, Honor Play, and although Unity notifications don't work, some app's notifications do: for example LifeLine

    I've tested this app with all network and data disabled and I still get notifications: this makes me think that notificatiosn CAN work on my device, just not under the current unity implementation.
