After upgrading my pixel 2 xl to Android 9, the battery drains much faster. It looks like it went down from about 48 hours to about 30 hours or even less.
I have spent an hour with Google rep on the line, shared my screen with the rep, and there is no solution to the issue.
I am a bit confused with Google. I thought, google is trying to make iOS user migrate to Android by implementing iOS UI on android, but at the same time, Google give more support to iOS user than the android user by updating Google apps earlier on iOS platform than the Android counterpart.
I wish Google return to its root, like the Lollipop and Marshmallow era when Google still had its own identity
Jason, 14 Aug 2018God in heaven. Android is changing the interface for the sake of changing. There's no improvem... moreI couldn't agree more with you. Android has lost identity since google decide to copy iOS UI. I mean, what's the point of the pill button? why does the task switcher look like that? It is not user friendly anymore. Basically, there is no improvement happened here.
God in heaven. Android is changing the interface for the sake of changing. There's no improvement what so ever to Android P from O.
People go to Android not so they can have an android version of IOS. They get android because its different (pun) from IOS. Android P drops the ball hard, and imma hold off for as long as I can with Oreo.,
When i saw the pull up for the app drawer i couldn't help but to think of iOS
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2018Recent Apps copied MIUI, lolAnd MUI copied iOS recent apps. the point..?
Is Android Pie a compulsory download or can you remain with Oreo 8 if you choose...

The UI is getting bigger so is the phone next year we are gonna use 7" phone with UI designed for 4" phone, I praise android over OEM a lot but this one is just undefendable from increasing white space that already too much to begin with and changing recent app pretty much only giving info to 3 or 2 lastest app, the last one was better.
I would really love it if stock android has double tap to wake up , and has a Â“lockÂ” toggle in notification bar ... I like that experience.. I donÂ’t like pressing on the power key every hundred times a day and get a broken key soon ... that already happened to my phone
Every new Android version promises better battery life and it never happens. All you can do is buy a phone with a big battery (4000mah Note 9 is nice!)
The best feature ever added to Android was the ability to play Adobe Flash videos! Pie adds nothing new, only changes to the interface, swipe instead of buttons...!
So how is Android P really going turn me on if all I do is make calls, sms, MM(sometimes), browsing, Facebook, Twitter, Watch video, check email, calendar and bet online. Not a gamer and not crazy about taking photos and vids.
Very ugly recent app interface..At least make the cards back to each other like ios not like that..Is almost same as Xiaomi miui recent app but the cards is a little bigger...Right now the best recent apps interface and animation of recent apps is from ios..
Whatever under-the-hood improvements are made, back-to-KitKat retrogression of app switcher bugs me. I've been using Pie since Bata and I just hate it..
And why on earth does the split screen need to three taps instead of previously one longtap? Come on!
The only thing I really enjoy is Digital Wellbeing tool and that's it.
