Android P's most important new feature? Some say battery, others say gestures...

We thought we'd ask you which of the 4 biggest new developments is your favorite. Those would be the gesture-based interface, the Digital Wellbeing program, the Adaptive Battery feature for battery life enhancement or the App Actions feature that lets you quickly fire up actions within apps without having to open or even download some of them first.
Surprisingly, both the battery saving and gesture controls are neck in neck as being the users' favorites!
How do you feel about the new gesture-based interface in Android P?
Naw! I am sticking to classic mode like my life depends on it!
I'll give it a chance

With Oreo it indeed happened to me that battery life improved on both my Nexus 5X and Xperia XZ Premium. Also boot times became half. So everything worked as Google had promised. Reports indicate that (at least initially) both Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 got worse battery life, which to me proves that excessive skins are more of a hindrance nowadays and Android is complete as it is and it's better left alone.

Material Design 1.0 was fantastic. While The 2.0 looks too cluttered. Steve Jobs once said: "Simple can be harder than complex. But its worth in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains". Okay, the mountain part is a bit tacky, but he has a genuine point! Oh well, G'Day!
