random access ONE, 06 Sep 2016first of all im an iPhone fanboy, i dont know about you guys but i think this is a good updat... moreNope , cuz MM and Nougat each of 'm has big minor upgrades , so they cant be secondary updates .
Whats the purpose of "adjusting your app to Nougat" if it's going to be used maybe by 0.5% of the market even until this year's end.
The updates to Android themselves are smaller and less meaningful. They add features that less and less people will truly like, while improving less and less under the hood.
Right now having a Nexus device means nothing, as you get the updates faster, but the experience is so incomplete, that you end up (like me on my Nexus 7) with a folder called "basics" just for apps that will give you what most OEMs add to Android out of the box, that you won't believe why Google didn't with yet another update. Another point is, my Nexus tolerates updates way less than my Samsung and Sony phones. The OEM devices sure lose performance with the new updates and never run as well as on the original OS version they came up with (optimizations and product lifecycle and end of life management, eh) but the Nexus is a whole another story - mine is almost unusable on Marshmallow. I went back to custom kitkat and guess what, super smooth. Sad face.
I hate automatic updates with a passion, so it's terrible news that Google tries to push them.
xoXXo, 06 Sep 2016we need more Material design apps in playstore and a better icons for playstore apps, i see gr... moreinstall a icon pack. btw I think I'm a poweruser, use lots of apps and the ONLY app I can think of having a non-materialised icon/ui is titanium backup.
we need more Material design apps in playstore and a better icons for playstore apps, i see great apps in playstore with so ugly icon that i dont install because will ruin my app drawer!!
so...whan people are doing is nothing about that, no one than google itself!

PLAYER SLAYER, 06 Sep 2016You don't need to install it. What Seemless Updates do, is they just download the update, wait... moreThat's not how I read it at all. The way it was worded, as if OS downloads and installs in background thus not needing for an individual to select an update(whether to download it or not and later to select to install it), and "benefit" of it being is that you didn't have to wait for it to install like a typical update (about 2-5 minutes of my Note 4). But I guess we'll see.
So...are faster updates going to work on Note 7? I think it wasnt hard to mention which of those new devices would have everything working on and which will not!!!
i want night mode which is provided at a system level even though it is possible to get by other means. hopefully it will be provided in upcoming regular maintenance schedules.
the pure droid, and aosp customrom the best!
(and htc sense :P)
this new nougat droid, is very cool, and all droid better than prev version!

What Seemless Updates do, is they just download the update, waiting for your approval to install the update. You won't wake up one morning just to see that you can't use your phone 'cause it's updating, Google isn't Microsoft. Plus, security updates won't take as long to install
i love sony, 06 Sep 2016yeah. those sony haters can only dream about sony's technologies. i pity them sooo muuuch.Yeah, much less bloatware and refined blazing fast UI.
so... now we also get 'updates' pushed to/from our phones Windows 10 style
"download and installation will take place in the background" = the user will not know why the Internet suddenly is so slow!
Every good phonecall blocker must have the ability to choose a "whitelist" to decide who is allowed to call without having to block every single, millions..., unwanted phone call in a "blacklist"!
Most features of Nougat I already have on my rooted phone!
I hope the customized Androuid 7 systems (that different phone manufacturers use for their own devices, like LG, Samsung) will NOT have this automatic (seamless) system update bullshít.
first of all im an iPhone fanboy,
i dont know about you guys but i think this is a good update to my nexus 5x backup unit. this should be the android M in my opinion, mashmellow was a minor upgreade over androd lolipop,it should be like android 5.2 LOlipop or something.
American might say it's incremental step, but stuff like multi-lingual mode is a big deal for the other part of the world. Gaming aside (for me), battery consumption, encryption, backup, quick task-switcher.. GJ!
domii, 06 Sep 2016I think google should stop using the interface with 3 buttons, just leave out the buttons alto... moreJust on the lines of what I was thinking. Android must incorporate more gesture inputs, like the ones in BlackBerry / Ubuntu Touch, and should freshen up overall UI with some novel colour schemes / animations. And I know, this might use a significant amount of resources, but it would really make a difference in the feel!
ToonToon, 06 Sep 2016but tell me, why android os needs octa core processors? ios needs only duel core.Because Android is not iOS and iOS is not android? lets see your iphone have the same features and skin and multi-tasking and widgets as any android phone, on dual core and lets see how well it will go.
