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 ;)

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 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!

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

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.
