I read about this technology in Airports ( https://itechcraft.com/airports-indoor-navigation/ ) and shopping centers. What does it need that indoor navigation work at home? ble beacon and Google Home?
Mirkran, 09 Mar 2018Android is providing support for what is basically a design flaw. Google should realize that t... moreIf there Are phones that have a notch or there will be more phones with notch, the Google have to support them.
Just like Linux makers or Microsoft have to support for example 8K screen when and if there will be those in the market.
The customers deside if the notch phones will be succesfull or not... and I predict that They will be even if I don`t personally like them. So in the future there will be much more notch phones, but luckily the nocth part works better and is more usefull than these days.
That quick setting panel was samsung's mashmallow quick setting design.
Android is providing support for what is basically a design flaw. Google should realize that the notch is just a temporary solution, but I guess OEMs has more power than Google.
And this thing about indoor tracking is just a surveillance method in disguise.
Indoor position tracking!: looks like future government control and privacy invasion-friendly feature or maybe a start for personal monitoring and military applications..this is nasty IMHO.
I hate to read this and think of its consequences...& this is just the beginning.
AnonD-686910, 08 Mar 2018It looks ugly. It's too white. Will there be a dark theme?Google has blocked all custom layers for Android P, so I highly recommend buy the OnePlus 3T with AMOLED display that support substratum on last update Android Oreo without rooting or unlock, or alternatively Install Android Oreo custom ROM and install substratum.
Fayth, 08 Mar 2018Google finally understand, that notch is the future. better late than never I guessThe moment even apple knows how to circumvent the notch while keeping the bezelless display, the notch will be out of the window. So Much for the future.
Anonymous, 08 Mar 2018let me remind you that apple had followed the essential phone notch...The essential notch is just a circle, the iphone x is not, it has a different design so basically iphone x did not copy the design of essential, but asus, p20, LG.... has the same notch design with iphone x, if they wanted a notch, they should have made a different looking notch
AnonD-686910, 08 Mar 2018It looks ugly. It's too white. Will there be a dark theme?It's Android, so there will be an easy way to switch the theme as usual. My Huawei also had a very white theme from the factory, but installing an app allowed me to switch the theme into a dark one, made by some XDA-user. I guess there should be an app for Pixels too, I highly doubt everyone wants to use a white theme?
When you have no more new features to fill in yearly update, all you have left are gimmicks and gimmicks. What a joke our smartphone world have become :v
Anyway, it's fine. Some love it and some don't. I'll just choose older and cheaper more valuable phone anyway :)
Even an Android gonna fuel the sinner notch feature.
OMG. Hell no.
This getting boring.
AnonD-727448, 08 Mar 2018No, It doesn't look like iPhone. Android is 100 % better than iOS. Android P design is absolut... moreI've heard of iSheep
Now we've got Android Sheep. Android is not the be all end all and all platforms do have something to offer, even if Android is still better in most things :p
"the phone will know which one you mean judging by your position"
One of the first things to delete after a root would be this spying "feature"
If smartphones will be so intrusive and spyfull, I'm going to stop using one.. or I'll open it up and remove the gps sensor.
They should've not included that notch feature to make the manufacturers find a better way with some effort to put sensors and camera, like what Vivo did to their prototype.
Ah, I forget... what Apple did, that's what we also need to do.
