What features do you think Google should absolutely include in Android N's final release?
posted by Ray S. / May 19, 2016, 6:16 AM
due later this summer? Perhaps you know of a feature in some manufacturer skin or third-party app that you consider worthy of joining the arsenal of stock Android?But, aside from the stuff Google seems to be planning for Android N, is there any other feature (or features) you think Google should definitely develop and add to the final Android N release,
Let's hear your thoughts and ideas in the comments!

Google should take control of updates off all devices. Like in Chrome OS. OEM should then add the features that they want. Though it has very very low chances, it will surely further push apple out of market.

Other than pissing off the largest Android OEM's that invest heavily in their own interfaces it won't change anything with regards to pushing Apple out of the market.

An option to change resolution and DPI accordingly would be nice, wouldn't be a difficult thing to add. Obviously nothing silly, options for 1080p and 720p would be nice. Something similar to Samsung's Gamebench would also be quite welcome but with more options, MSAA or similar or even something like FSAA.

Much better memory management! My cell phone should not need as much memory as a full fledged PC running Windows. Android is still such a jumble of crap. Every application has a different look and feel. It should be more unified like Windows desktop. Windows Phone had that idea but the OS is just not as capable as others partially due to lack of apps.

Clearly you either don't know how Android and it's apps work if you are asking questions like that. Android is agnostic, Windows is not. Well not until Microsofts Universal apps (only on Microsoft platforms). Android and it's ecosystem don't care what hardware you run on. For that matter it doesn't even care about the OS. Just as long as the Android runtime can get the proper access to the OS and hardware it's running on. That's the beauty of Android and one of its greatest strengths. As a matter of fact that is why Microsoft came out with Universal apps in the first place to try and compete with Android. However Microsofts Achilles heel is the amount and the type of hardware, CPUs that their support. Android supports a lot more and anyone can add more hardware if they want to. This is not true for Microsoft nowadays. Look even Apple is trying to go the agnostic route with their Apple Swift and runtime. It looks like it's here to stay and Android is leading the pack. Not to mention the other two have to still build their agnostic ecosystems. Android already has 2 million apps to prove it.

And it is this ridiculous design that makes it less secure than other OS, less efficient that other OS and harder to update quickly. You can mix all kinds of ingredients to make a food dish but that does not mean it will taste good.
