Earlier this week, Google surprised everyone by releasing the first Developer Preview of Android O. Unlike Nougat, Android O is not as feature packed as Android Nougat. Instead, it comes with plenty of minor enhancements and APIs that will help in improving the overall experience of using the OS.
At first glance, it might look like that Android O is not packed with as many new features as Nougat was. While the OS surely lacks as many headlining new features as Nougat, it still comes with its fair share of new features and enhancements to play around with. For now, Google has only released the Android O Developer Preview build for compatible Nexus and Pixel devices.
Google today released the first Developer Preview of Android O. The latest version of Android focuses primarily on power management and notification grouping, and it comes with plenty of new APIs allowing developers to create apps that will offer an even richer experience. If you want to install Android O on your Google Pixel, Nexus 6P or Nexus 5X then read on.
Along with announcing Android O, Google also dropped the first Developer Preview of the OS for compatible Nexus and Pixel devices.
A slightly dramatic headline, admittedly, but accurate. You see, Android 6.0 and above uses new systems from Google to help extend battery life: ‘Doze’, which restricts what apps can do in the background when a phone is stationary and unused, and ‘App Standby’, which does much the same thing but is based on how long it is since you last used a particular application. In either case, certain applications can be accidentally affected – but here’s how to keep them chugging along.
Like the LG G5 and V20 before it, the LG G6 also comes with a dual rear camera setup. However, this time around, LG has tweaked its camera setup to further improve the secondary wide angle shooter.
The most major mobile launches during the first quarter of a year are done at MWC. This year’s MWC was no different, with Samsung being the only notable company that did not announce its new flagship at the event.
Every year, Motorola launches a multitude of premium mid-range and flagship phones but its the Moto G series that earns the company its bread and butter. The original Moto G single handedly brought Motorola back from oblivion and into contention in the smartphone market. Last year though, Motorola stumbled with the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus.
Nokia, the Finnish company that once dominated the smartphone market with its Symbian phones before being acquired by Microsoft and fading into oblivion, is back. HMD Global, a Finnish company comprising of veteran Nokia executives and staff, purchased the rights from Nokia to manufacture and sell phones under its brand name.
Learning its lesson from the G5 last year, LG is hoping to make a strong comeback this year with the G6 — its flagship handset for the first half of 2017.
