The only issue we've encountered during our short time with Android 8.1 is a random reboot.
Obviously, you're well aware of Android Oreo's new features.
The excitement that once surrounded the release of the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have now turned into anger and concern. Following devices are supported for the developer preview. With the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, it's pretty clear which phone most people are going to want to choose thanks to the unique new design of the iPhone X. With the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the differences are a little bit more subtle.
You don't have to use a Pixel 2 to see some benefits.
While we finally got the name for the next Android version, we still have to wait for few more weeks to get the public beta of the Android 8.0 Oreo. The API is parcelable, AIDL friendly, and exposes useful features like removing write permissions.
With the sequel phones, they really do feel like a a direct answer to Apple's big iPhone 8 and iPhone X announcements in September. According to an Android Police report, Google has removed this option from 2017 Pixels also. The company will start shipping the pre-ordered devices from November 1. The Muskie, which is a freshwater fish and is a continuation of Google's traditional naming of its new devices after marine creatures, appeared on AOSP code files.
Other new features include autofill enhancements - providing the functionality of the Autofill framework to password managers and other services - that includes UI customization of the Save dialog and the ability to set a credit card expiration via a spinner control. With the migration to a javac based toolchain, using Java 8 language features in your project is even easier. Google says it'll activate it in the coming months to make image processing smoother. You will also get a guaranteed 50 percent buyback value if you choose to sell the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL in near future. It supports HDR+ in this initial release.
Also, Google has made the notifications shade semi-transparent in version 8.1. This should avoid any distractions that these buttons may be causing the Android users. Disabling "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" could improve battery life in such circumstances by a good chunk of time. This also means that you will have to charge your phone frequently as it will slowly drain your phone's battery juice.
Google Pixel 2 is company's flagship smartphone that was launched by the company at a major hardware event in San Francisco on October 4 alongside Google Pixel 2 XL. Before their launch, these phones were referred by their respective codenames of Walleye and Taimen.
Similarly, the system notifications will now show an Oreo icon rather than the circular thing.
