In Latest Updates They Only Remove N Add Some Features So Nothing Special In Updates...... My Old Galaxy S3 Have 4.4.4 Kitkat Lte Version OS Which Better N All Features There Which Required To Use..... If Ur Waiting For Updates I Will Say Wait For Official Updates Because Starting Lots Of Bugs N Issues In New OS Updates :)
Bugs! Bugs everywhere! So glad to see people (finally!) realizing how bad this Spyware OS really is and that price isn't everything.
How about bringing back compete and total control of your sd card... You know, simple tasks like copy-pasting files using whatever app you like whenever you want, without rooting and modifying system files to gain access...
For the 'what's missing section, OnePlus has the answer to most of the points.
Many of the new android features like PIP multiple apps in windows were first made available in the Note 4 running KitKat !!! I wonder what took so long for Google to implement these features in stock .. :/
dayspring2099us, 06 Sep 2017It's not a big leap update. Wishing there are more choices for OS not only google & ios th... morethere was before, OSes like symbian and Meego. unfortunately in today's market it doesn't matter how good or innovative a product is, if it doesn't return the highest profits then it's useless . sad but true
Oreo name from the black oreo cookie but still not a dark theme. That's stupid !
How LineageOS managed to provide latest android update even if OEM can't.
Even though Oreo is such an exciting name, on the surface it seems there aren't many actual exciting changes.
Oathbreaker, 06 Sep 2017Battery life really is a joke and this after a few days of a restore to new and letting it set... moreDid the battery also hot when your pixel was still on Nougat?
How can it was HTC fault when it's Oreo's bug?
Talking about Oatmeal logic.
Using the Pixel again today and Google Photos backup sync was definitely the culprit from yesterday. Battery life is still draining a little quicker than I would like but nothing like the twice as fast drainage from yesterday.
I might still keep the Pixel but will cut off Verizon. But having both my LGs with me feels good too. The two best for me to type on, watch videos from, take photos, and future proofed with expandable storage and removable battery.
I have an uncle who uses a Nokia candybar phone for 15 years now. That's my goal with both my LGs. Let it grow old with me thanks to a removable battery and ability to control my Samsung TV's on/off/volume controls for many more years.
There really isn't any phone out there including the Nokia 8, Note8, V30, Pixel 2, and iPhone X that is highly interesting to me. No removable battery and IR blaster, no thanks. I could care less for bezel-less phones.
Oreo update - 7.5/10
You can skip Oreo and not really miss a thing except PiP which still feels like beta.
Oreo ruined my Pixel's battery life especially for tethering. The irony is I'm now craving to snack on Oreos and Kit Kat today. I like Nabisco Oreo but not Android Oreo.
H8 Android 8. Stick to Nougat for now. I personally don't need anymore phones even if I sell off like four of them.
LG V20 (T-Mobile), right holster
LG G5 (Broswer), left holster
Motorola Moto E (GPS), car
Good enough for me. Removable battery and IR blaster, ftw! Just try to make $900 by selling four phones. Pay off the remaining balance on the S7 edge on T-Mo and Pixel on Verizon. Then cutoff Verizon. About $57 per month on T-Mo thanks to Pixel $325 bill credit promo months back.
In some ways, I'm glad Oreo screwed up my Pixel. I can now have a good reason to leave expensive Verizon and save $140+ per month. Only $57 instead of two lines costing me $200 and no balance on the account. Avoid Oreo or wait for at least a decibel update.
Nokia 8, LG V30, Note8, iPhone X, Pixel 2, just extra baggage right now. I will return to Nokia or Motorola eventually. Toss in trying out a Sony Xperia first time.
Yes to Nokia, Motorola, older LGs, Sony
No to Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Xiaomi, HTC, ASUS
I don't like Huawei and Xiaomi's media manager. It isn't compatible to OS X. ASUS is pure garbage and you can cook BBQ using an HTC phone. The best phones in my mind to get is either Nokia 8 or LG V30. But I don't like the glass rear on V30 and don't care for water-resist, so Nokia 8 is my #1 thanks to unlimited cloud storage and stock Android.
The iPhone X will be cool for awhile but eventually I will get sick of it because I usually grow tired of iOS. There is always an finite good feeling with any new iPhone until you realize iOS is garbage. I don't care if it is smoother than Samsung crap or has 5-year updates. Still restrictive. SE looks better to me than the iPhone X and 8 and I already am sick of it.
Oathbreaker, 06 Sep 2017Battery life really is a joke and this after a few days of a restore to new and letting it set... moreBe careful with turning those off.
We turned off cloud sync for no longer than one second and turned it back on.
Doing so erased the backup
