Google releasing android N already, well before Marshmallow has been fully launched
They haven't yet told us what it's called. Nuts or Nutella??
Anyone still using this at the moment? How stable is it and how are the new features?
Nexus only atm
its ok litle app crashes battey seems 1-1.5 hours less then m
libraries missing in power amp but working plays music
i like new notification center
i back to m because i need stable phone and more battery
Just downloading the Phase 2 OTA release, hoping the niggles from the phase one Alpha will be gone now.
Ok initial thoughts.
-New CM style quick toggles in notifications is very handy.
-Data saver is a nice addition for controlling apps using data and preserving battery life.
-Night mode is interesting not sure how much ill use it, has some extra settings in System UI tuner which seem nice (press and hold cog in quick settings pulldown until it spins then down near developer options in settings)
-Split screen is debatable on usefulness but i'm sure ill use it some day probably just for copy/pasting info easily.
Will see how new notifications and doze work as things go on.
Splitscreen like this?
Well I had such thing in kitkat too..
but only on a samsung...
split screen now will be native to android
Well im still waiting for v6.0 update on my galaxy alpha. I want it badly lol, lolipop 5.02 sucks by battery. Kitkat 4.4.4 had at least 45 -60min better onscreen time. Now with 5.02 im lucky to get 5:30hrs out of it, usually 4:30hr or so..
i had problem unrool from beta preview 2 i didnt get the stock 6.0.1 update notification in the end i flashed via adb full image
Have reverted to MM, everything mostly worked fine battery life was a bit worse and messenger (googles) was glitchy need my phone in a decent state for holiday so reverted.
New notifications and quick toggles are useful, never used split screen, hard to tell how well data saver and improved Doze worked as battery life wasnt great anyway. Looking forward to final release but will stay on MM and await UK Android pay release instead for now.
Split screen should have been a feature back when they brought out the first Nexus 7, Google takes too long to add needed features.
To be honest they should have looked at split screen with Honeycomb which was Tablet only. I cant see much use for split screen on phones except when copying info to a text/email, i suppose better to have than have not but still.
So this is a surprise,.
Hopefully they'll just skip Marshmallow for my Alpha and update to Nougat. would be a much better choice from what I've read so far..
I really need some fancy battery improvements, this lollipop atm suks balls lol :nerd:
Final release is supposedly Monday 22nd for Nexus devices according to a leak, hopefully we'll see Allo/Duo bundled in with it too which would be nice.
im with s7 edge and battey sucks too
S7 Edge battery is the best thing about the phone, ive never had a phone make it through the day before and this sometimes makes it to 3.
Good news about N, i had noticed that Samsung have been quicker with updates recently.
