There are still things missing? I thought android was perfect and every single way of customization is there even without rooting. At least that is what I was called...
My Pixel updated to Oreo, which introduced a new issue for me: when updating apps over Wi-Fi, the phone became extremely hot. Does anyone have suggestions?

You can order priorities of apps. You can even tell it how many notifications show up in the notification area before needing to hit more to see the rest. And of course there are some apps that let you complete tasks right on the notification.
I still think they could improve the tile UI and modernize it. It's one of the worst things for a beginner. And the app list should have switches between list view, category view etc.. So I could tap a button and get a grid view of the apps with larger icons rather than having a massive list.
Gihanp, 05 Sep 2017EMUI is just seriously horrible. A failed clone of iOSYou haven't seen Color OS (Oppo's Android overlay), then. Hahaha!
I would love to be able to do the following without the need of root access :
- Change resolution
- Change DPI
- Change fonts
- BLACK theme (i HATE the white theme) (at least add a night mode)
- Change the color of the status bar
- In Buzz Launcher you can set gifs as icons. When will the stock Android be able to do that??
Carol, 05 Sep 2017Those who do not want crappware and modified os device. :).It can be crapware for you but for people like me, it's highly useful. Even Samsung copied a MiUi feature known as "Dual apps" where you can create two copies of a single app
so android got nothing new just some upgrade old thing and people made fun of other os that late using it ?
Dots are gimmick.
My windows phone shows exact number of notifications instead dots (i.e missed calls, messaages, mails etc) and my previous phone (Sony Xperia) did the same.
Shame on you google for not understanding simple things.
Android With Good Ui Layers Work Best. Those Are Both Fast And Powerful.Im Bored After Using The Stock.Thinkin Why Not Get A Huwaei Or Samsung Now ? I Realy Liked The J7 Max's Interface
Used to use Lilli pad and PIP on YouTube for free and Droid 8.0 makes you pay for YouTube Red now. Talk about money hungry.

I use both stock and modified Android. Stock is the way to go for better future proofing and less lag as time goes on...
