You mean which lifecycle method will be called in the "other app" if it is interrupted by the phone app? If so I think it would depend on the phone app on the phone. On my new phone when someone calls, and I am currently using an app, the phone app only puts up a sort of widget on the top of the screen, so whatever app I am currently using is still visible in the background. In that case it should be onPause() that is called in the other app since that app is still visible in the background. If the phone app brings up an Activity that takes over the entire screen then onDestroy() should be the last lifecycle method called in the other app. According to how the lifecycle is explained on the developer site.
