    Nope. I do not like the curved corners. Not upgrading.

  • Memefest

    It's annoying and strange to me that one of Android 12's beta partner brands/devices doesn't include Samsung phones; they have the most used Android phones and are #2 in popularity, behind Apple. Google, the fuck?

    I'd rather android doesn't become like iOS. There is a reason I don't use iPhones. But I guess I will just stick with launchers and hope good lock will allow for the customization I want.

    for android 12 portrait screen mode gives a big change, but what about the display when the screen is tilted, a lot of the display area is cut off because google never discusses support for tilt screen in every release of new os, The bigger the smartphone screen, the better to enjoy multimedia on a tilted screen.

    Always remember that they could have given you theme customization options at any time before this, they just didn't want to Same goes for any options or configuration being accessible to the user

    Everything looks cool from my nougat perspective😅

  • zvxcvxcz

    Meh, the redesign looks mostly the same. What new functionality is coming? Color extraction is old hat these days, been in Darktable for a while now. Color customizing has been in things like AOKP forever. Ok, some of the new functionality is useful. I would like them to work more on device drivers instead though... USB-C is pretty great, but not if Android doesn't support many of the devices.


    No need over complain on ios over andriod

  • antisocrates

    Can we make Android able to upgrade from one version to another already? Imagine if this was a PC and you needed to throw it away every time a new version of windows was released. Still waiting for Linux phones to become more stable for everyday use because of this issue.

    • antisocrates

      @kurade10 That's a bold statement. They will eventually be stable enough. SailfishOS is promising already.

    • kurade10

      dude, Linux phones will never be as stable as we would luke them to be

    Is impressive how comments focus on what is absolutely useless. Comments in Linus tech are a perfect mirror of the state of our society. Worrisome

  • Axiorlin

    If I'm being honest, I don't really like how much of "All-In-One's" Phones are becoming, that might sound weird to say but if someone were to steal some tech reliant persons phone and got in to it, which is completely possible with how un-seriously people take having strong passwords, they would have access to their money, car and personal info, some of which could be VERY important info depending on whats on the phone... Or maybe I'm just missing my tinfoil hat right about now and am just over-thinking it... OR MAYBE THAT WHAT THEY WANT ME TO THINK!!

  • 子灿

    That one hand mode has already been made out by the brand Smartisan in 2014. And due to their overly avant design,they've already been sold to ByteDance. By early 2021,ByteDance closed their mobile phone business and so Smartisan phones eventually left the market. What a pity that the great ones failed to survive!

    If they really cared, they would give us Blackberry style security. Where I get to choose everything the app is allowed to have access to and not what the blanket permissions the app and app developer says it needs.
