They r doing this to privide faster update. If u haved used a lenovo device then u must know how slow updates are.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2017Stock then Install launchers. Well, i'm Chinese and i prefer stock lolLol this is strange.
Dave Granger, 05 Aug 2017Will this affect my P2? I like the Vibe UI.P2 already has stock ui with a custom launcher that cn be used to toggle between android and vive ui frm settings.
Lord Petyr Techwiz, 05 Aug 2017Stock Android might be fast, but it has sh!t for features. More features is always better, pro... moreU should try other brands, not lenovo. I think xiaomi is the best for u cz its gr8 miui.
Lord Petyr Techwiz, 05 Aug 2017Stock Android might be fast, but it has sh!t for features. More features is always better, pro... moreTrue, stock android despite embedding more and more features "previously seen" on various brands is still insufficient.
I never liked stock android, because you have to go through many apps more or less ads-heavy (and not free of bugs with each update) to bring it to some satisfacting level features wise. And i have been around since Android Froyo.
Stock Android might be fast, but it has sh!t for features. More features is always better, provided you can turn them off if you like. We pay good money for smartphones. So don't give us just the Stock UI which we can just download off the internet. I can flash stock ndroid on my Samsung phones. But can't flash Touchwiz on the Pixel phones.
Why the hell are the Chinese into bloated skins? I'd be fine if they looked better than stock but they're just abysmal all of them!
Lenovo, do not drop these features
1) double tap to wake up screen,
2) alarm works even when phone is switched off
3) very accurate prediction sentencing
And if possible make your fans happy by:
1) Update phones released in 2016 with stock UI
2) Bring a new Phab plus phone with Gorrilla glass
3) Maintain the Phab plus aspect ratio ( do not follow the Samsung notes)
k6power, 05 Aug 2017not likely k6 power was launched in november 2016 i think.But there was a news that k6 power get android o in dec 2017
Guys from the "capitalistic" point of view Lenovo made a smart move!
Because with Android-O and the inclusion of project treble. All they would need to ship now is vendor specific code.
Which leads to. Less developing time per device required.
Less developing leads to less software engineering staff required.
Less software eng. means less money spending in the software engineering department.
The question is. Will other companies follow?
I hope ZTE will follow. Including ZTE Nubia.
Very cool move from Lenovo. Just take stock android and optimize for smooth performance.
zamroni, 05 Aug 2017What functional? I used Mi 4i. Xiaomi removes ability to delete/archive Gmail email from notif... moreTried MIUI once and i didn't like it. MIUI is the reason i never even considered buying a Mi phone.
Stock then Install launchers. Well, i'm Chinese and i prefer stock lol
I think any of part of the world would love near stock version as long as people know existence of nova or action launcher (and so on)
