Thats just gonna draw more people away from WP, and make all the WP users angry. They should go in a different direction. WP has square live tiles, iPhone can keep the circle apps, Android should get triangles!

Shawn Shahidul, 03 Mar 2016Everything is roundingEveryone copying Nokia's icons.
So what has changend in Android N ? Nothing new that I can see , same Android M look . It would be nice if there will be a big difference in UI with Android N like it was between KK and L .
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2016What's "N" for? Android 7.0 Nougat? Can't wait.No. It will be named as android N "Nutella"
These changes look like copy of MIUI 7. Small Statusbar font. Paged notification toggles. The clear all notifications button is too small. I struggle to press it on Lollipop
I agree, companies should have a phone line-up with stock android....
Each major brands should launch at least one mid range phone with stock Android so that people wanting fast update may not be dependent on them.
Anonym, 01 Mar 2016I'd rather get an officially supported Cyanogenmod phone and have more models to choose from (... moreGoogle gives support to the Nexus line, they are not in charge of giving support to the models that the OEMs make.
Without rooting they need to offer a different background to that white, maybe erm? A dark one ? For crying out loud this is android, stop trying to be apple.
'Cause we would see some of the top Android brands skip a version or two to the latest version just so we could praise them for offering fast OS updates
Heretic, 01 Mar 2016Then go buy a Nexus device and be happyI'd rather get an officially supported Cyanogenmod phone and have more models to choose from (which is exactly what I did), thank you very much.
Does this solve the chronic lack of support for the vast majority of Androids? Not even close!
