More veterans around here will remember a very useful feature - which wasn't even considered one - that cell phones used to have, but which we lost after the arrival of smartphones. And, before the arrival of smartphones, i phones were able to sound the alarm even if the terminal was turned off. But does this feature work on Android?

Yes and no. The answer depends on each device, because, although it is true that the alarm cannot sound when the smartphone is turned off Since the operating system alone cannot "activate" the device without user interaction, some manufacturers include an option that allows you to turn on the device a few minutes before the time when the alarm is set.



Is it possible to ring the alarm when the mobile is off?

In reality, whether or not this function is included in a terminal does not depend on the manufacturer, but on the processor integrated into the smartphone. For example, the Most terminals with MediaTek chips integrate a programmed switch on of the phone, which can be activated when setting the alarm so as not to lose it even if the terminal is off.

On the other hand, some devices with Qualcomm processor, like those of OnePlus or those of the Spanish firm BQ, they also include an option of this type, which allows automatic switching on and off of the terminal at a time predefined by the user.

So, in conclusion, we could confirm that no: the alarm does not sound when the mobile is off, although it is possible - provided that the manufacturer of the device has implemented it - to turn on the device a few minutes before it rings by means of a tool alarm automatic switching on and off.
