From what I've read there's no guarantee that onDestroy, onPause, onSaveInstanceState, etc... will ever be called on an Activity or Service. On an app level there isn't even an onDestory callback. So yes there are some hooks for graceful shutdowns, but you still have to be prepared for random exits.

To this day, youtube's solution to python memory leaks is to just restart the process.
