Android O vs Android Nougat: A visual comparison

Expected to arrive in early-to-mid August, Android O is just around the corner, when it will most certainly roll out to all compatible devices, with the Pixel and Pixel XL first in line. Tons of neat new features will be making an appearance on deck, with the most important and actually useful ones being under-the-hood improvements - as is tradition! We've neatly summarized most of these for you right here, but there's much more to the upcoming Android O release than under-the-hood features alone...

One of the not that important, but still relevant areas in which O will differ from Nougat will be the all the major and minor ways the interface will differ in. 

Of course, a disclaimer is due: the comparison below is comparing the existing Android Nougat build with Developer Preview 3 of Android O, which means that the latter can theoretically score a bunch of changes in its final release a couple of weeks from now.

This the worst google update in ages tbh. God, i really hate this obsession with whites ffs. Infact, why even move to oled in the first place? What are these guys even thinking? Notification panels, white, app drawer, white, settings page white, google assistant page, white, google feeds, white, google dialler, white, app shortcuts, white. FFS!!!!!

Why Google and most of the other companies are so obsessed with White? I don't love the OnePlus 5 but Oxygen OS, especially the Dark UI theme and custom accent colors, is the most beautiful and sleek Android UI out there, period

Not much has changed. So glad Samsung doesn't use Vanilla Android. Vanilla Android is just as boring as Windows Mobile and IOS are as far as looks and function.

Looks flat and boring!

Finally it is white and blue. The boring dark grey with green is gone.

The consistency is the key , sadly the UI designers of Android don't understand such a thing . That is one problem and another is Android doesn't have a UX designer team that really understand the nature of interaction . If they fix these two they win
