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.

Expecting Google to fix some issues found in ANDROID PIE currently in the next few Security Patch Updates. Somewhat similar to ANDROID OREO, performance and battery life take its toll when it got released. Unlocking the smartphone using its fingerprint sensor shown lag and delays, smartphone heating up and throttle unusually, battery life draining faster than ever. But some of these issues are caused by the November Security Update. After a few Security Patch Update, we see improvements on ANDROID OREO, with these issues fixed. I'm very sure that Google will do this again and hopefully fix ANDROID PIE
Dre, 09 Aug 2018Do you people even know what is a beta version android. Final version will be much better. It is the final version; not beta version.
bellringring, 09 Aug 2018heres a TLDR opinion
no performance tweak of any sort and only slight better UI layout which ... moreYou're probable right to an extent.
I have gesture navigation since jellybean 4.1.
Background processes are almost non-existent on my devices, and on certain ones I could selectivity block their access to web down to certain sites/servers/ports (yes, ad servers included).
But this brings it to mainstream users.
Also, the note should benefit from some extras here and there. I can't tell which, but at least the longer app support for people who keep the devices 4+ years like me ;)
heres a TLDR opinion
no performance tweak of any sort and only slight better UI layout which my Samsung overlay is waay better and can do more with my spen, Android P is a waste of time for me.
this AnD. P are for those android purist, I am already using some of those "new" layout on my Note years ago dude !
Duck of death, 09 Aug 2018The moments when the broken deployment of Android updates actually saves the masses.
This loo... moreHow is battery life worse? 1 hour lower on the endurance rating but better standby time and on screen usage in video and calls. Chrome just needs to be optimised for Pie and it'll be better than Oreo.
I've noticed a few hiccups on my Pixel running Pie but like Oreo. When its 9.1 then it'll be safe to update. Pie is still a work in progress. Fragmentation will ALWAYS exist on Android. Google can't make people upgrade to Oreo devices supporting treble and even then some OEMs don't work hard enough to update stuff and properly test their software. I'm looking at you Samsung!
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2018battery isn't improving much, new UI is not that good. still rock on Android 8, and wont update.Do you people even know what is a beta version android. Final version will be much better.
Whackcar, 08 Aug 2018You forgot to write about the "Easter Egg". It was the Octopus in Oreo. What is it on Pie?pie monster
Deannielsen, 09 Aug 2018Real fun... so many people still waiting for Oreo :-D2015 units are still waiting for Nougat :p
The moments when the broken deployment of Android updates actually saves the masses.
This looks like a beta. Everything is slower and battery life is worse despite a new fancy battery saver? At least it looks different. Yay?
Verdict - as USUAL, no tangible improvements neither on performance nor on battery life and zero new features and you wonder why i don't update my phones. Never better, but usually some problems in terms of stabillity creep in. Those advertised improvements with every new android version are never to be seen.
