Yesterday, we did a review of Google's just-released Android P developer preview, detailing all the new features that may come with the final Android 9.0 release. These include new visuals, transitional animations, notification layout, privacy enhancements, wide color and high efficiency media format support, and a whole lot more. 

We were curious which of the chief new Android P features that got revealed in the developer preview has piqued your interest the most, and, as you can see from the poll results above, the new looks and privacy improvements take the cake, followed by native HDR support and the new rich notification previews. 

If the update still feels a bit underwhelming to you, it's because Google doesn't want Samsung owners to be frustrated has been introducing front-facing features that manufacturer's overlays have had long before this or that Android edition. 

Still, Google always outs system features that no other phone maker can intro, like Project Treble that is supposed to make slow software updates a thing of the past for phones that ship with Oreo out of the box, like the new Galaxy S9. For that reason alone, it's worth paying attention to new Android versions, albeit not to the extent it used to be just two years ago.
